Somehow, a security guard at the Milwaukee Bucks’ arena still don’t know who Jeremy Lin is.

The Toronto Raptors point guard, who is in his ninth NBA season, said he was stopped by a security guard at Fiserv Forum, where the Milwaukee Bucks play, after Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals on his way to the team bus.


“After Game 2 in Milwaukee, I was trying to get to the team bus and one of the dudes in the Milwaukee Arena just screams at me,” Lin said on the Bill Michaels Sports Talk Network. “He’s like, ‘Where do you think you’re going?!’ And I’m like, ‘Uh, I’m trying to get to the team bus.’ He’s like, ‘What? Where’s your pass?

“I was like, ‘I don’t have a pass. I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t have a pass.’ This happens in a lot of arenas, so I just kind of go with the flow.”


In 2015, Lin, who just signed with the Charlotte Hornets that time, was also stopped by security for the same reason.

‘Went to the Hornets arena for first time and tried convincing security I’m a player,’ Lin tweeted in September of 2015. ‘She said, ‘What team?!?’ lollll.’

The Raptors went on to beat the Bucks in six games to reach the NBA Finals for the first time where the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors were the first team Lin played for after he went undrafted in 2010.
