Becoming a superstar in professional sports is almost like running for president. Everything you've ever done seems to become part of the story and you get vetted. Especially if it was put on the Internet.

Lin has risen from an undrafted D-Leaguer cut by two NBA teams to maybe the story of the season in the NBA, but he was once a goofy teenager that had a Xanga page in 2004 under the profile "ChinkBalla88." That's right
Lin was 16 in 2004, so keep that in mind as you have a chuckle at Lin sampling some headband styles from that time. (Captions are Lin's.)



“this is what a regular headband looks like on a sexy guy.”


“ghetto and gangster, but sad! The only tournament that i could play in ended up being a disaster. But its ok, cuz now, alex and i are gb-ing!”

“this is what Marquis Daniels on the dallas mavs looks like with a sideways ghetto headband.”



“there’s Josh Howard on the dallas mavs. he wears his headband jewish style…very very loosely.”



“there’s brian grant from the miami Heat…girl style!”



“this is Derek Fisher on the los angeles Lakers with the headband covering the ears.”

So to recap, Jeremy Lin roasted Derek Fisher in 2004, and then roasted him again on the court in 2012. Linsane, you guys.

Just a 16 years-old teenager fooling around. Yes, he is a real Harvard gangsta that one. Making me shake in my little space boots. Lol.

I used to read Jeremy's blog in high school... and the captions on this page are all wrong and not his original post. It misses all his creative quirky humor. His blog is private now... how did these even get here?

lol We just get made fun of by our friends/families for things like this we did at 16.  These guys have the whole world looking them up.
