Jeremy Lin is heading into the crazy world of free agency for the second year in a row but that does not mean he can’t have fun before it becomes official on July 1. Lin was in Iceland for the past several days and he capped off his vacation by completing the Running Man Challenge near a waterfall.
As mentioned in a previous report, the Charlotte Hornets point guard was in the land of ice and fire as part of his early summer vacation. A video of him playing one-on-one basketball with a 14-year-old fan went viral.
In the video below, you can watch Lin doing the Running Man Challenge besides a waterfall in Iceland along with his brothers, Joseph and Josh. The viral dance craze has been lighting up the entire world and it was popularized by Jared Nickens and Jaylen Brantley of the University of Maryland basketball team.
It was uploaded by Lin on his official YouTube channel. The video’s caption reads, “Thanks Iceland for the awesome vacation. Got some much needed rest…now time to get back to work!”
The 27-year-old is expected to get a lot of offers from many NBA teams looking for a starting point guard or a capable sixth man. In his first season in Charlotte, he averaged 11.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists while only starting in 13 games.

Lin also came in seventh in the Sixth Man of the Year Award voting and proved to his critics that he is a capable defender. He has been linked with many teams such as the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers ever since the Hornets got eliminated in the first round of the 2016 NBA playoffs.
Nonetheless, Lin has expressed his interest in taking a discount and re-signing with the Hornets. He has insisted that his experience in Charlotte is the happiest since he has been playing the game of basketball.
