Jeremy Lin of the Brooklyn Nets, best known for his winning turnaround with the New York Knicks in 2012, is also a Dota fan in attendance at The International 6. He has a respectable 4,000 MMR (matchmaking rating) and plays the game three times a week after basketball practice to relax. ESPN sat down with Lin to ask which Dota heroes are the equivalents of real-life NBA superstars, including himself.
Any secret plans to join a Dota team? No, although he hopes to endorse one someday.
