First of all, I love Jeremy Lin. I love him as a basketball player and as a role model for his character, and both are definitely present in this video.
I have always felt sympathy for the boy or girl during school activities that gets picked last. I’ve never experienced it but I have always had a special place in my heart for the kids that always get picked. I don’t usually get chosen to be a team captain either so it’s not like I could choose them. I’ve always admired those kids too because they keep coming back to play even though they know they will get judged and picked last anyway.
This movie I believe demonstrates the power in determination and in picking someone and training them up to become better and never forgetting about them. Even though Jeremy is a famous NBA player and you would think he would pick one of the older, taller, or stronger players, he didn’t forget about Chris and he still chose him.
Jeremy’s message through this video really touched me and it obviously touches many other people besides myself. This video made me tear up a little bit and it really spoke to me the power of perseverance and believing in yourself and believing in those who just need an extra push.
