Linsanity has arrived in the Far East.
Jeremy Lin met with a large media contingent in Taiwan, his parents' homeland, on Friday, and the NBA's first player of Taiwanese descent will play an exhibition game there against the Pacers on Sunday.
"I kind of see this as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," Lin said at the news conference. "I don't know if I'll ever be able to come back and play an NBA preseason game here where my parents were born and raised.
"Definitely, I am looking forward to it. It's a celebration in some sense."
Lin posted a picture from the media session on his Twitter account.
