The Raps are the champs! With the Toronto Raptors winning the 2019 NBA title, Japan in Canada takes a look at the delicious point guard on the championship roaster, Jeremy Lin. He 1.91 m tall, went to Harvard and is an NBA champion. That’s hot.
Coming out from Harvard, J Lin was undrafted, played in the D-league, and actually joined the Golden State Warriors, the defending champs that the Raps beat in the NBA finals. After being waived by both the Warriors and the Rockets, he joined the New York Knicks early in the 2011-2012 season. All the other guards injured and the Taiwanese-American took the floor and led the struggling team to a victory. And then Linsanity began: Lin would lead the Knicks with the rest of the stars on the crew suffering from injuries, scoring career highs against all-star guards such as John Wall, Derren Williams, and Kobe. On February 14 that year, with less than a second remaining in the game, Lin made a game-winning three-pointer in the Knicks’ 90–87 victory over the Toronto Raptors. He then signed with the Rockets, played with James Harden for two seasons, before being traded to the Lakers, then the Hornets, then the Nets, then the Hawks, and finally, with Fred VanVleet out due to an injury, The Raptors bought out Lin from the Hawks and Jeremy became a Raptor right before the playoffs in the 2018-2019 season.
What makes him hot is not only his intelligence and his muscles. Jeremy Lin is a nice person, always humble, credits his teammates, and is hard on himself, saying in several interviews that he needs to play better. Like all of us (unless you’re white), Lin faced a shit load of racism, being called a chink on the court at Harvard, being told to “open his eyes” when he touches the basketball. People even started chanting “sweet and sour pork” at him.

Thats a wrap for APAHM!! In the words of the amazing @iamsandraohinsta, it truly is an honor (or should I say honour🇨🇦) to be Asian!! I hope the next generation of Asian Americans never feel that their background is something to hide. Our cultures awesome and should be celebrated, not hidden or mocked. Props to @88rising and @jubileemedia and @jasonylee_ for my other APAHM outfits! Did i wear the same shoes in every photo? Yes yes I did but idc bc my all my stuffs still in Atlanta lol. See everyone for game 3 👊🏼 #asianinvasion
But he’s smart and tough, has smooth handles, can dice defenses up in the pick and roll, and has a sexy body. He’s now an NBA champion and large eyes are overrated anyways. So, this Friday, let’s take a sweet look at this beautiful, athletic, beast that all our moms would love to see us bring home for dinner.
