MANILA, Philippines –NBA star Jeremy Lin is currently in Taipei, where he spoke highly of retired player Yao Ming.
Lin, who quickly rose from obscurity to “Linsanity” last February, recently left the New York Knicks and signed to play for the Houston Rockets, the team where Yao once played.
The Harvard-educated 23-year-old said he had done “nothing” compared to the former NBA star.
Lin will fly to China in the coming week to coach a basketball camp. He will then return to Taiwan late in August to train another 120 young players. -- Mornings @ ANC, August 6, 2012.
