For the Raptors’ victory parade, Lin donned a purple Tracy McGrady jersey, an iconic shirt dating back to the team’s early years in the league.
However, instead of the word “Raptors,” Lin had the team name rendered in Chinese, which translates to “Meng Long” (猛龙).
The 30-year-old point guard shared his photo on Instagram, writing, “TWO MILLION+ people at the parade?! Literally endless seas of fans who rooted for us! I’ll never forget this day … thank you Toronto!”
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
