Jeremy Lin, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook & More to Make Appearances at Florida Mall
The upcoming All-Star game is set to bring in just about anyone relevant you can think of, including Jeremy Lin. Lin is already scheduled to make an appearance at the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night, but now fans can see him Saturday at Florida Mall. Lin is among five total NBA players that will appear over four days at the mall. Other players scheduled to appear are Derrick Rose, Paul Pierce, Derrick Williams, and Russell Westbrook.
Florida Mall is setting up basketball courts, both inside and outside the mall, which will allow fans to play basketball. In addition to playing basketball, fans can meet the players and win gift cards. From the Florida Mall:
The Florida Mall is proud to announce our partnership during the All Star Weekend with Foot Locker, NBA and adidas. The Foot Locker Fan Jam is a free, interactive experience featuring 3-on-3 games, HORSE competitions, athlete appearances, giveaways, the Orlando Magic Flight Crew and the hottest NBA merchandise for basketball fans. The fan jam will be located in the Saks court from Thursday- Sunday during mall hours.

In addition, we will have an additional basketball court outside of H&M with the Jordan crew who will have an array of fun activities for everyone to enjoy. To top off the excitement, NIKE will have events at the main food court entrance that will be appealing to all. We will have an array of celebrity appearances throughout the weekend, but you have to stop by to see who they are!
It sounds like they don’t want to announce when the players will be there so they can draw more fans there, but according to The Orlando Sentinel, Lin will be there from noon to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
Be sure to keep it locked to Thoughts of a Jeanius for all meet & greet news. Don’t forget Kevin Love will be at the Metrowest Walmart, 2500 Kirkman Rd., Thursday February 23 from 6:30p-8:00p. NBA Goodie Bags will be given out (while supplies last) & no outside merchandise will be signed.
