Jeremy Lin dedicated this week to his fans, thanking them for their enduring support. Fan Appreciation Week featured two Q-And-A sessions with the NBA player, artwork contests, and a multiple choice quiz on Friday.
Fans who participated in the Instagram and Houston Rockets artwork contests won t-shirts and autographed posters of the point guard. Lin expressed his appreciation for fan contributions -“Thanks everyone for your participating and amazing/hilarious submissions! You guys are definitely very creative and had a lot of fun with it!”
The multiple choice quiz featured questions about Lin’s family, his favorite foods and video games, pet peeves, and pastimes. Lin had a sense of humor about the quiz - one question highlighted the fact that the NBA player sucked his thumb until age eleven, and Lin joked that his biggest pet peeve is bicycle riders who bike slowly in the street. Said Lin of the hundreds of responses, “Just got a headache looking through all the submissions...all I see is A B C D when I close my eyes [laughs out loud].” The first person who answered correctly won a pair of shoes signed by the point guard.
“THANK YOU everyone for participating in Fan Appreciation Week! You guys are seriously the best...much love,” said Lin as Fan Appreciation Week came to an end.
