In exactly one day, Steve Nash and Jeremy Lin will have more clarity on how their common experiences could shape them into having a fruitful partnership.
Both entered the NBA as underdogs. Both thrived under former Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni in separate stints of their career. Both have something to prove this season.
And as the video above shows, both have an incredible sense of humor. Nash made a cameo appearance in Lin’s latest parody video that mostly entails his friends pressuring him to take advantage of the Hollywood spotlight and appear in various commercials. The end of the video then features Lin concluding he would rather concentrate on basketball, leading his two friends to argue over who can emulate Nash and Bryant to help Lin prepare for the season.
But just as they settle on which Lakers stars they will emulate, Nash makes a surprise appearance and takes over to help Lin. This marks the second time Nash and Lin teamed up together on a parody video, appearing last year in a spoof that poked fun on how Lin’s personality changed through “Linsanity.” Perhaps this marks the beginning of a fruitful on-court partnership.
