Jeremy Lin Wants Taiwan Media to Back Off

You would think that if anyone would be a bit overwhelmed by the nonstop media coverage of LIN-sanity it would be Jeremy Lin himself. But the 6'3" 23-year-old seems more concerned about the well-being of his friends and family thousands of miles away in Taiwan, who apparently cannot leave their homes without being mauled by paparazzi.

"The special request I have is for the media back in Taiwan to give my family space, because they can't even go to work without being bombarded, without people following them," Lin said at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. "I want people to respect their privacy."

Lin's paternal grandmother, Lin Chu Muen, 85, lives in the Taipei region of the country, as does other extended family, reports Yahoo! Sports.

As long as Lin continues his tear on the court, life off the court may not get any easier. Comes with the territory, big man!
