Jeremy Lin & 2010 Warriors You Probably Don’t Remember Motivation Workout
Today’s morning motivation workout mix features the Golden State Warriors and takes us back to 2010. This is after the Warriors 26-win season and before Steph Curry became a household name. This is a Warriors team that started the season with Monta Ellis, David Lee, Dorell Wright, Andris Biedrins and a 2nd-year Curry in the starting line-up. And with the exception of Curry, you can see all of those guys in the above video hitting the weights.
Most current Warriors’ bandwagon fans wont recognize most of the faces in the video with the exception of another now well-known point guard; At the one-minute mark, a pre-Linsanity Jeremy Lin appears. This video takes place 14 months before Lin became an international house hold name after he gave the world one of the most insane two-weeks of basketball ever.
Mind boggling right?
At the time of the video, Lin was an undrafted 22-year old rookie, signed as a free agent a few months earlier. He would go on to average 2.6 points and 1.4 assists in 29 games with the Warriors and 18 points and 4.3 assists in the D-League before getting waived in December of 2011.
So in honor of the 2010 Warriors and Lin’s hard work, persistence and rise to fame, here’s a few more videos of Lin before Linsanity and Chef Curry insanity.
