So far, Jeremy Lin appears to be handling his sudden ascent into super-stardom with the greatest of ease.

Sports)…

“The special request I have is for the media back in Taiwan to give (my family) space, because they can’t even go to work without being bombarded, without people following them…I want people to respect their privacy.”

According to Wojnarowski, Lin’s grandmother, as well as other extended family members live in the Taipei region. His grandmother is 85 years old.
