 MANILA, Philippines (AP) - Jeremy Lin has easily stolen the spotlight as the Houston Rockets practice for this week's first NBA preseason game against the Indiana Pacers in the basketball-obsessed Philippines.
Lin was mobbed by reporters and photographers on a Manila basketball court on Tuesday, a day after the teams arrived in the Philippine capital.
Lin says he's excited to play ``in an electric environment.'' He says his Taiwanese parents told him good things about the Philippines. He says he was glad to see and feel a warm welcome from people when he strolled in a mall.
He says he's thankful to inspire people, ``especially my fellow Asians.''
