The most famous Asian-American player in the NBA got a surprise when he arrived to his new workplace on Saturday.
"Went to the Hornets arena for 1st time and tried convincing security im [sic] a player," Lin, who was traded to the Charlotte Hornets in July, tweeted. "She said, 'what team?!?'"
A spokesman for the Charlotte Hornets told the AP the team had no comment.
Lin signed a deal with the Hornets this summer after a frustrating season with the Los Angeles Lakers.
"I wanted to be on a team where I would be able to play freely and truly play the game I love with joy again," Lin wrote on his official site. "That has always been the most important thing to me."
The 6-foot-3 guard and California native made a name for himself during the 2012 season with the New York Knicks which inspired the term "Linsanity."
