Jeremy Lin had just arrived Taipei this early morning to start his 2013 Taiwan/China Tour.

He will be staying in Taiwan for the next week or so before departing for China Mainland on the 21st.

During his stay in Taiwan, he will participate in various commercial activities for his endorsers (Volvo, Cathay Financials) as well as charity events and testimonial sharing sessions similar to what he did last summer.

His summer training camp will be held from August 18 to 20; his Houston Rockets team mate Chandler Parsons will arrive Taiwan on the 17th, and will be guest instructor for Jeremy's training camp.

Then he will fly Shanghai on the 21st.

He will stay in China visiting Shanghai (August 21 ~ 23), Beijing (August 23 ~ 27) and Chengdu (August 28 ~ 29) for activities/events for his endorsers Nike, KFC, P&G/Safeguard and Volvo.

He will once again hold his summer basketball clinic free of charge in MasterCard Centre aka Wukesong Arena in Beijing from August 25 to 27.


So it is going to be at least a 2-weeks' stay in this part of the globe. Just stay tuned to YMM and this thread for all updates and photos of Linsanity in Greater China region !!!!

Just like last year, Jeremy took Taiwan's national carrier China Airline CI003 from San Francisco to arrive Taiwan's Taoyuan International Airport around 5:00 am in the morning.

This is his 4th visit to Taiwan in the past 5 years.

Yet, Linsanity fever seemed had not waned.
There were still hundereds of diehard fans waiting throughout the night at the airport gretting Jeremy on arrival.

And unlike last year, Jeremy and his family (parents, brothers Joshua + sister-in-law and Joseph) did not take the VIP channel.

As a result, there were chaos as crazy fans wanted to have a closer view of Jeremy, take photos from their cell phones and to shake his hand.

Jeremy threw little souvenoirs (small basketballs with JLin7 logo on it) to his fans.

Then with escort of security guards, they left Taoyuan International Airport for his hotel.

NOT TOO SURE WHETHER the following video can be played over in US.

It seemed like Jeremy had been working pretty hard over this last year in polishing his Mandarin.

In this afternoon's press conference in Taipei, he seemed to understand EVERY question thrown at him.

Unlike previous years, he responded
almost 100% in Mandarin, although it is still not as fluent as we would like him to be.

Some photos at the press conference.

Jeremy Lin doesn't look as buff as he did last year.
but it doesn't matter, he could probably date any girl in Taiwan.

He should focus more on the court, otherwise he could be fired!

ANOTHER PIECE OF DIRECTSH!!!!!!!!!!!T !!!:roll: :roll: :roll:

Well, unlike alot of his Houston Rockets team mates, he had been VERY FOCUSED and working VERY HARD on his shooting, his ball handling with left hand and other skills for the PAST 3 to 4 months ALREADY. :roll:

DON'T FORGET he has endorsers' obligations/commitments that he has to meet.

Besides taking a 2-week break after a long 3 to 4 months training does not REALLY mean he will abandon his daily work-outs.

In the hotels that he stays (whether they be in Taiwan or China), there will be gyms for Jeremy to continue his strength and conditioning exercises; and just like what happened last summer, he can surely find stadiums/gyms to practice his shooting and other basketball skills, or he can do that while he holds his training camps for the school kids in Taiwan and China.

I'm glad he's taking a little bit of time away from the court. Seems like he's been working hard on his game all summer, so the break is probably needed and definitely well-deserved....

Jeremy Lin had been tied up in his endorsers' promotion and his charity activites ever since he arrived Taiwan.


Still recovering from his jet-lag, right after he attended the press conference on Wednesday afternoon, he attended a fans' gathering organized by Cathay Financials that very evening.

Then yesterday, he travelled to Hualian in the morning and visited the same primary school that he visited last summer; he was greeted with hundreds of boys and girls from that school, who are either orphans, from poor families or aboriginals.

He first played "Old eagle catches little chicken" 老鹰捉小鸡 with them, and then he had another game called The Shark and Sea Weed with them, wereupon the boys and girls dribbled with basketball, and Jeremy tried to intercept and steal the ball away from them. For those who lost, they had to do push ups; Jeremy eventually accompanied the kids for the push ups.

He then rushed back from Hualian to Taipei for another mini basketball camp/fans gathering organized by China Airlines where he and the youngsters had good time playing the Shark and Sea Weed again.

Had been tied up in a few things over the past 2 days, and SO MANY THINGS for catch-up on Jeremy's activities in Taiwan.


Jeremy showed up in a commercial promotion for his endorser Volvo on August 16, sort of a fans gathering and Q&A with the master of ceremony.

Jeremy said he likes driving. Whenever he felt pressure and low-mood, he would drive his car out and listen to music to relax and release his pressure.

When asked about whether he like the singing of his team mate James Harden (i.e. the song that James Harden sang recently in his commercial), Jeremy eye-rolled and said he'd rather like James Harden to focus on his 3-pointers and doing pick-and-roll.

He also said he has confidence he is in NBA to stay, and hopes to have a long career. And when he retires at the age of 40, he might contemplate to return and permanently reside in Taiwan.


Here are photos and video of Jeremy at the Volvo event.
