If you need someone in your basketball team to shoot free throws, JJ Lin could be your man.

On Wednesday (Dec 2), the home-grown singer posted a video of him scoring four out of five free throws on a basketball court. He wrote: "Leave the free throws to me in future."

Lin, 39, was cheered on by Taiwanese television host Blackie Chen, who is also the founder and chief executive of Taiwan's newly established basketball league, P.League+, and other players.

Mandopop king Jay Chou, who is the second most-popular artist among Singapore listeners in streaming service Spotify's annual year-end round-up for 2020, commented under Lin's IG post: "You can come out more often and play basketball with me in future."

Lin also posted a photo of himself in basketball jersey, with the caption: "Fortunately, I did not lose face in the basketball match today."

Lin retains his position as the most listened to local artist on Spotify and is also the fifth most listened to artist overall, behind American singer Taylor Swift at No. 4.
