Jeremy Lin: ‘I’m not playing basketball in a diaper’

NBA: Preseason-Brooklyn Nets at Boston Celtics Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Jeremy Lin is already doing great things in his still brief tenure in Brooklyn, showing tremendous ability both on and off the basketball court. Seriously, we’ve only played 5 preseason games and he’s easily the most popular player to every wear a Brooklyn Nets jersey. It’s incredible.

Anyway, Lin is not only the team’s best basketball player, but he’s charming and capable of transcending his basketball fame. Here, we see Lin playing a comedic role in a Comedy Central digital series called Viralocity.

In it, Lin surprises “Nets fans” outside of Barclays Center. It didn’t, well, go as planned — the comedic ‘rule of five,’ though! However, we did get a really great soundbite from Lin, where he declares that he won’t ever play basketball in a diaper. Not never.


It also gives us this:

Welcome home, Jeremy. Brooklyn is happy to have you.
