Jeremy Lin will fit in well in Hollywood.
No stranger to the spotlight, the 25-year-old point guard has been adjusting to his new surroundings since signing with the Los Angeles Lakers last week.
As part of his introduction to Tinseltown, Lin filmed this hilarious video with YouTube stars A.J. Raphael, Ryan Higa, Philip Wang and actor Harry Shum Jr., among others. In it, Lin is still downcast about the Houston Rockets' heartbreaking loss to the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
His friends create an elaborate musical number to try to cheer him up, and while Lin doesn't exactly dance, he's at the center of a well-choreographed and well-shot performance.
Then Lin puts on a performance of his own, putting his piano and basketball skills to use. The film even has an inspirational message that fits nicely with Lin's journey over the last two-and-a-half years.

The video, which is approaching 50,000 views in its first day on YouTube, was directed by Evan Jackson Leong. Leong also directed the 2013 documentary Linsanity.Full Story >>
