Jeremy Lin's 1st television commercial debuts locally

TAIPEI--Playing basketball is much easier than shooting a commercial, NBA star Jeremy Lin said Saturday, following the debut of his first TV commercial at a sponsor's event in Taipei.

Lin, the first American-born NBA player of Taiwanese descent, is currently in Taiwan on a nine-day visit, during which he hosted a four-day basketball summer camp and will attend an evangelical gathering.

"It's much easier to shoot a 3-pointer," the 24-year-old point guard said, adding that he was really not that good at acting and that he "had to do everything 50 times."

"I had to do it so many times, I don't know, maybe he (the director) doesn't like my smile or something," Lin said of the shot of him smiling at a child at the end of the commercial.

During the 30-second ad, in addition to driving and smiling, Lin said in both English and Chinese: "I'm not here to live up to anyone else's expectations; I'm here to live up to mine. I'm Jeremy Lin. The one that I want to surmount is myself."
