Jeremy Lin shows Lakers fans what to expect with mom dunk

Published Add your comment

Jeremy Lin has been given the opportunity of a lifetime after he signed for the Los Angeles Lakers last month, but the point-guard certainly isn't worried about the pressures of playing for the Lakers just yet.

Instead of pressuring himself ahead of the biggest season of his career, Jeremy Lin is out enjoying the summer sun with an array of crazy but fun antics keeping him busy.

Lin dunking

As of late, Jeremy Lin has been taking to social media to ask his friends, fans and followers to post videos of themselves dunking on unsuspecting victims with the hashtag #JLinDunkCam.

Ahead of receiving endless videos from his friends, fans and followers, Jeremy Lin decided to entice people with his own ideas of what kind of hilarity he's looking for. The video below is awesome, with the third dunk particularly epic.

Lakers opportunity

Big things are expected of Jeremy Lin this season after the Lakers recent woes. The Lakers only managed a 27-55 record during the 2013/14 NBA season, but Kobe Bryant's return from injury should see the Lakers dramatically improve.

Lin isn't expected to be the key man for the Lakers during the upcoming season, but he's definitely expected to contribute to the Lakers rebuild. Kobe Bryant warned as much when Lin signed on at the Lakers, with the 35-year-old superstar telling Lin to get ready.
"We have a lot of work to do," was Bryant's simple message for Lin.

Lin stats

Jeremy Lin became a bit of a cult figure during his time at the New York Knicks after he scored an average of 14.6 points per game.

His impressive form during only 25 starts in the Big Apple saw him move to Houston Rockets for an 82-game stint during the 2012/13 season. But he didn't progress as he would have liked last season with only 33 starts from the 71 games he played in.

It's expected that he will compete with Steve Nash for the starting point-guard spot for the Lakers next season, but he's more likely to play time as part of a rotation again in the 2014/15 NBA season.
