Jeremy Lin Exclusive Interview
What has it been like playing in the NBA as Asian American athlete?

No. In college I faced a lot of it but I cant think of one single instance last year.
What are you favorite kinds of food?
Chinese food, sushi, in n out and steak
When you were a kid, was it always a dream of yours to be playing in the NBA one day?

What have you been doing during this lockout?
Iâ€™ve been rehabbing my knee and getting it healthy as well as working out and lifting.

All types of gummies
