The Nets’ electrifying point guard, who is still recovering from a terrible knee injury from last year, also uses his free time trying out new stuff — recently, he’s been found to be dabbling a little bit into magic.
In a hilarious video he posted on Instagram, Lin attempts — and miserably fails — to move a drinking straw with his mind. Luckily, Jay Chou, aka “Mr. Magic” was passing by and demonstrated how to do it properly.
With ease, Chou sends the straw spinning without touching it and then caps the act of by also moving Lin’s glasses, purportedly using his psychokinetic abilities.
Watch the entire clip here:
The short but delightful sketch ends with Lin impressed with Chou’s incredible magic.
Thankfully, Lin won’t be depending on any magic in his upcoming season, as he’s been making incredible progress with his recovery through hard work.
I just experienced the biggest setback of my life and knew I needed to isolate myself away from everything that made me comfortable to focus on a full body rebuild. @physio.ryan @dankenzie and I spent all those long, rainy days for the last 6 months tucked away in a Vancouver suburb obsessing over the finest details chasing the ghost of perfection. @fortiuscentre collaborating with the @brooklynnets to build an innovative program that would push my limits as my body would allow. And now Im moving back to Brooklyn to finish what I started. Next season couldnt come sooner!! #NeverDone #honorarycanadian #MotivationalMonday (🎥: @timothyandrewc )
