Jeremy Lin may not have been a member of the Los Angeles Lakers when Nick Young threw out that memorable first pitch at Dodger Stadium back in April, though the purple and gold’s new point guard has definitely seen the viral video as he referenced it ahead of his own first pitch today.

“Warming up! Haven’t thrown a baseball since P.E. class,” Lin wrote on his Twitter page, before sending a jab at his new teammate, “@nickswagypyoung do you have any tips?

Now, if you’re looking for tips on the basketball court or in swag department, Nick is most definitely your man. But when it comes to throwing a baseball? Well…

Here’s Young’s pitch from back in April:


And here’s Lin’s pitch from tonight:

Yup, Lin definitely wins this one.

I have a feeling this won’t be the last time that Lin sends a playful shot Young’s way this season, and you can bet that Swaggy P will look to get his own back at some point, too.
