Jeremy Lin and David Lee Play Pickup in Taipei (VIDEO)

Former Warrior teammates ‘sneak out’ at night to play hoops with locals.

Jeremy Lin can’t find a moment’s peace these days. The constant interviews, appearances, commercial shoots and hordes of fans following his every move make it hard for him to get out and get some shots up. During his recent trip to Taiwan, where his celebrity and legion of fans may be even more intense than it is in the States, Lin took to drastic (and hilarious) measures to sneak out for some late night balling. Lin brought along David Lee for the ride and the two wowed locals during an impromptu late night run with the Taiwanese locals. Peep the vid above and enjoy!

    That’s a strange coincidence, two guys who both got famous playing for New York but turned out to be crazy overrated the instant they left the Knicks playing together.

  • Billy Hoyle

    @Caboose so true…Warriors need to trade David Lee..he puts up stats but he’s not a game changer…he’s like Kevin Love without a jumper.

    @cc116a1a0e4ac254be7a96da06955e12:disqus trade him for who?

    David Lee is not overrated unless you were part of the New York crowd that thought he was worth what he got paid.

    So trade David lee to Houston. I love to see him and Lin play together. and also trade Jared Jefferey and novak to Houston too. we need them to start linsanity again. There are many overrated NBA stars who have never won anything. If lin can not win anything, that’s ok. We just want to see his play.

    David Lee put up solid numbers in NY, don’t really think anyone had him overrated. Personally; after watching the video I don’t think Lin is overrated either, but not for basketball reasons, he will earn the Rockets every dollar of his contract back, anything he contributes on-court is the icing on the cake.

  • supercrap

    Id rather overpay a hard working straight edge guy than some dude that busts because he’s got drinking/partying/discipline issues

    Thats funny. I know where this is. Nice “movie” I guess, but way to cut away on the highlights. “He drives to the hole – now look at the crowd.”

    Isn’t getting paid more than he’s worth the very definition of overrated?

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    You know damn well that a double double big man will always get overpaid, which means it’s more like market value. Nobody was actually overrating him, just as they had to, overpaying to get him.

  • Caboose

    ESPN called him a “marquee player,” New York Times called him “indispensable,” Mike D’Antoni called him one of the best forwards he’d ever coached, and SLAM called him “tremendously efficient,” “possesses great instincts,” “a man possessed,” and “near the top of the League” in terms of power forwards. That’s some pretty high and undeserved praise.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Ok you are right I should have said nobody outside of New York or the media. Lol

  • Caboose

    Lol and some of the idiot commenters here. Deal.

  • shutup

    He was a big draw for the Knicks, Hence a Marquee player, The New York Times “indispensable” was around the time of trade rumors the Knicks were shopping him. He was “tremendously efficient” he didn’t have many plays ran for him and he put up solid numbers; his rebounding prowess showed “great instincts” “a man possesed” he was playing better then anyone ever expected of him so he was playing outside of himself and lastly “near the top of the league”; lets analyze that; they didn’t say he was at the top of the league, so lets rule out top 10, he was arguably in the top 20 when that was written and truth be told if he was ranked better than 16th he was near the top of the league. None of those comments seem to be unwarranted. The two years when he peaked in NY he averaged about 18 and 11; pretty solid numbers, (actual numbers are 16 and 11.7; and 20.2 and 11.7) I say that put him near the top the league in terms of PF’s those years. Has he lived up to those numbers in GS? yeah, his 2 years in GS look like this 16.5 and 9.8 and 20.2 and 9.6, that still puts him in the top 10-15 of PF’s in the league. One more comment about tremendously efficient, he never in his career shot less than 50%. Go figure.

  • Ugh

    Can you type without hitting the capslock key?

    What is ASAIN? But I do know Asian. And yes, Asians can look up and down without moving their heads. Next question grasshopper.

  • Comment_System

    we seriously need to have this site heavily moderated. Idiots like this guy can cease to exist on here.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    He was the best player on the Knicks during that time; I don’t understand how any of that means he was overrated. He was “tremendously efficient” in terms of shooting % and he does “possess great instincts” on offense–he’s one of the better passing big men in the league. How is any of that undeserved praise for a 20 and 10 player? 20 and 10 (with around 3 assists) is nothing to sneer at. He is obviously one of the top starting power forwards in the league, I would argue top 10.

  • shutup

    Exactly what I was trying to say. It’s not like he left NY and became a bust. Some sites have him ranked as high as the 8th best power forward in the league right now. (check some Fantasy Basketball Sites)

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    LOL, SLAM moderators finally enforced their rules!!!
