In a lengthy interview with Greg Logan, Jeremy Lin thinks he and D’Angelo Russell is “really good kid” and the two guard will get along just fine in Kenny Atkinson’s motion offense. “I think at the end of the day, he’s a really good kid,” Lin said of Russell. “He has a good heart, and he’s a tremendous basketball player. Once he meets our team and gets in our locker room, I’m pretty sure it will be a seamless transition. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot from him as well, and hopefully he learns from me. What we want to do is create that family atmosphere where we’re kind of pushing each other, keeping each other accountable, helping each other.”
Lin already had donated his game check from the Nets’ March 17 game at Boston to One Day’s Wages, and plans to do so again next season. “Millions of girls across the globe are unable to get the education they need to provide for themselves and their families. This is due to unaffordable school fees, forced child marriage, lack of sanitary products when they reach puberty, and many other barriers,” Lin wrote on the charity’s website. “My hope is to shed some light on these issues, and invite you to join me in taking action.”
Jeremy Lin takes annual trips to Asia in the offseason to greet fans and handle other priorities associated with his foundation. This past season, Lin has teamed up with two Asian-based charities, One Day’s Wages, whose objective is to raise awareness regarding girls education. As we wrote, Lin donated his game check from the Boston Celtics game on March 17. He will do the same this upcoming season.
