Jeremy Lin is likely used to getting autograph requests. Most of those inquiries, however, do not involve him signing a Paul Millsap card.
The Brooklyn Nets point guard, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in the team's first game of 2017-18, shared a video on YouTube in which he opened fan mail. Amid drawings, letters and even a picture book, one person took an unusual approach.
Next to an attached card of the former Atlanta Hawks forward, the fan apologized for not having one of Lin, who instead offered to sign a bobblehead of himself. He also said he will send the Millsap card back so the fan could have the chance to get it signed by Millsap.
Lin and Millsap have never played together, and the latter has not garnered mainstream popularity. Yet as Lin noted, the four-time All-Star is a "tremendous, tremendous player."
