Jeremy Lin dunks on all sorts of folks, including his mom

Jeremy Lin is certainly keeping himself, and his fans, entertained this offseason. His latest offering is an Instagram post in which a couple of accomplices set Lin up with makeshift hoops for him to throw down nasty dunks over innocent bystanders. The footage appears to be shot at either Lin’s or his parents’ house, and the third and last victim to get posterized is believed to be Lin’s mother.

The footage is part of Lin’s “Fan Appreciation Week,” which was explained on his Facebook page:

The Instagram post was accompanied by this comment: “Day 3 of Fan Appreciation Week! Who can come up with the best #JLinDunkCam video?!? All submissions will be judged on creativity, execution and post-dunk celebration lol. You MUST use #JLinDunkCam so we can find the video and post by midnight pst today. PLEASE be safe! My video will give you guys a few ideas (no need to use a real mini-bball/hoop…all props work too)”

It would be very interesting if someone tried to one-up Lin by attempting his or her own dunk over his mom. That might not go over quite as well.

Anyway, the Instagram video took much less time and effort, but was at least as entertaining and far less confusing than the recent mini-movie Lin uploaded to YouTube.
