"I’m like, ‘Uh, I’m trying to get to the team bus.’ He’s like, ‘What? Where’s your pass?’"
Jeremy Lin was prevented from boarding his team bus in Milwaukee
Lin and the Toronto Raptors were in Milwaukee for game two of the NBA conference play-offs when the incident occurred. When the Taiwanese sports star tried to join his team bus, the security guard stopped him because he was not carrying his team pass.
“After game two in Milwaukee, I was trying to get to the team bus and one of the dudes in the Milwaukee Arena just screams at me,” Lin said. “He’s like, ‘Where do you think you’re going?!’ And I’m like, ‘Uh, I’m trying to get to the team bus.’ He’s like, ‘What? Where’s your pass?”
“‘I don’t know what you’re taking about. I don’t have a pass.’ This happens in a lot of arenas, so I just kind of go with the flow.”
Lin faced a similar situation when he signed with the Charlotte Hornets in 2015 too.
The Toronto Raptors went on to beat Milwaukee Bucks 4-2 in the conference finals. Golden State Warriors will face the Canadian team in the finals.
“WE. THE. NORTHHHH! Grateful to God, all the prayer warriors and the crazyyyyy fans! This squads [sic] full of soldiers! Finals #history,” Lin posted on Instagram.
