Jeremy Lin stopped by Bucks security on his way to Raptors team bus after Game 2, asked for pass
Jeremy Lin has been in the NBA for nine years but for some reason, people have found it hard to recognize him throughout the course of his career.
The Toronto Raptors guard has dealt with security guards stopping him on multiple occasions just because they don’t know him that well. The most recent incident happened in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Milwaukee Bucks.
“After Game 2 in Milwaukee, I was trying to get to the team bus and one of the dudes in the Milwaukee arena just screams at me. He’s like, “Where do you think you’re going?!” And I’m like, “Uh, I’m trying to get to the team bus.” He’s like, “What?! Where’s your pass?” I was like, “I don’t have a pass. I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t have a pass.”
“This happens in a lot of arenas, so I just kind of go with the flow.”
Well, it’s hard to recognize someone who’s not playing much for his team, right? After all, he’s only played a total of five minutes and 31 seconds in the conference finals. But even when he was making that “Linsanity” noise in New York, he was already dealing with these kinds of problems.
But hey, maybe winning a championship will help people recognize him better.
He just needs to hope and pray that the Raptors close out the Bucks on Saturday night for them to advance to the NBA Finals.
