A guard from Milwaukee Bucks refused to believe that Jeremy Lin was a member of the Toronto Raptors after Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals
Nine-year-old NBA veteran Jeremy Lin is recognized everywhere from New York to Taiwan's Taiwanese parents, but one Milwaukee security officer still refused to believe that the 6foot2 security guard was a member of the Toronto Raptors.
When he recently told the Bill Michaels Sports Talk Network, Fiserv Forum security stopped Lin when he tried to board the Raptors bus after losing Game 2 of the team to the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Admittedly, the 30-year-old Lin had no identity on him.
& # 39; After game two in Milwaukee I tried to go to the team bus and one of the guys in the Milwaukee Arena just screamed at me, & # 39; Lin explained, as quoted by the South China Morning Post. & # 39; He is so, & # 39; Where do you think you are going?! & # 39; And I kind of like, "Um, I'm trying to get to the team bus." He says, "What? Where is your pass?"
& # 39; I don't know what you're doing, I don't have a pass & # 39; This happens in many arenas, so I'm just going with the flow. & # 39;

Lin had a similar experience in 2015 after signing with the Charlotte Hornets.
& # 39; Went to the Hornets arena for the first time and tried to use convincing security. I'm a player & # 39 ;, he tweeted in September 2015. & # 39; She said & & # 39; Which team?!? & # 39; lollll. & # 39;
Lin & # 39; s Raptors beat the Bucks in Saturday's Game 7 to advance to the NBA final against the Golden State Warriors, who even signed the former Harvard star in 2010 as an unexplored rookie.
He was later cut, picked up by the Houston Rockets, and canceled before landing in New York, where he became an international sensation for the Knicks in 2012.
After taking action in early February due to injuries, Lin led the injured Knicks – losers of 11 of their previous 13 games – on a winning series of seven games, scoring an average of 20 points and the nickname & # 39; Linsanity & # 39; earned.
A knee injury eventually derailed Lin & # 39; s outbreak season in March, and he has struggled to stay healthy in the past seven seasons.
After four impressive seasons at Harvard, Lin canceled his membership in 2010 before concluding a deal with the Golden State Warriors. Later, Lin became an international sensation for New York in 2012. After being forced by injuries to take action in early February, Lin led the injury-ridden Knicks losers of 11 of their previous 13 games – on a winning series of seven games with an average of 20 points a game and earns the nickname & # 39; Linsanity & # 39;
The Lakers legend Jerry West is said to have been stopped due to security in the Las Vegas Summer League, which is remarkable since the West's silhouette was used for the NBA logo
The Jerry West silhouette was used in the NBA logo, but that didn't stop a summer league security guard from stopping the Los Angeles Lakers legend
Nevertheless, Lin has had a productive career with Houston, the Los Angeles Lakers, Charlotte, the Brooklyn Nets and the Hawks of Atlanta before taking a buyout in February and signing with the Raptors. Over his nine NBA seasons, Lin has an average of 11.6 points and 4.3 helps a game while hitting more than 80 percent of his free throws.
Despite his experience, Lin is on average 3.7 minutes in the play-offs, because Raptors coach Nick Nurse relies mainly on Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet on point guard.
Lin is not the first NBA player who is confused by the spectator.
The Lakers legend Jerry West is said to have been stopped due to security in the Las Vegas Summer League, which is remarkable since the silhouette of West was used for the NBA logo.
& # 39; Security in Vegas is difficult, & # 39; wrote Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press in July 2018. & # 39; They have just asked a man to return from a walkway near the court. That guest: Jerry West. The security man is wearing a pin code, that is the logo that Jerry West is and asked if he wants to move Jerry West. & # 39;
After agreeing to a buyout with the Hawks, Jeremy Lin signed with the Raptors in February
