Christian basketball player Jeremy Lin said that the sports had given him much, “but far above achievements and success, is the importance of relationship”.

On July 8, Lin posted on Facebook, “Stronger TOGETHER. Hoops has given me a lot, but far above achievements and success, is the importance of RELATIONSHIP. Life is best lived together. Thru all the twists and turns, ups and downs. Find people who, sink or swim, you'd roll with. People you'd never consider abandoning. People you'd die for. Then do life to the max w them (and get their signatures stitched into your shoes lol)”

He continued, “As Dom Toretto said, ‘I don't have friends, I have family.’ Make no mistake about it, family goes faaar beyond blood. But man...I’m crazy blessed to have my blood brothers by my side 32 years later. I might cry writing this post smh”

A fan commented, “Last night I went to play basketball with my elder brother in a college. I hope we old men could sweat at the field thirty or forty years later. I’m grateful for everyone I have encountered in my life. Come on, guys.”

Another wrote, “It’s a kind of happiness and motivating force to have family around.”

Another message read, “The warmest confession of relationship may be that we share, work hard, and live through the years and our lives together.”

“Family is our armor when we fight outside, and also our ever haven when we suffer wrong and feel low”, another fan stated.
