Local media outlet Charlotte Five sat down with our favorite number 7 and talked "life off the court."

The Observer isn't all hard-hitting journalism... they have a branch committed to fun, quick, easy-read articles too, and it's called Charlotte Five.  The staff at Charlotte Five sat down with Charlotte Hornets guard Jeremy Lin after a practice to ask him a few questions, and his answers ranged from discussing his faith, to his musical tastes, to his favorite cartoons.

It's a fun article that gives us a look at one of Charlotte's more entertaining players off the court. The great thing about Lin is that over the years he's grown to be more comfortable with himself as a person, and that means he'll open up a little more to the media about his personal life. Sometimes that has to do with his religious beliefs, and other times it has to do with his interest in anime or e-sports. Also, he's gotta have some pretty thick skin to just casually bring up he's listening to Justin Bieber.

A quote from the quick article by Gregory Kurts: "Faith has always been the most important thing to me. That’s why it occupies a lot of my reading and listening. And, I can relate to being an underdog, like Naruto."
