Video: Lakers' Jeremy Lin Dunks On His Mom, Innocent Bystanders

So what are you doing this summer before your new job starts this fall?

Lakers guard Jeremy Lin is spending his offseason at home, it seems from a video posted on his Instagram. Bored of being off the court , he's spending his time dunking on unsuspecting pedestrians, sleeping people, and his own mother.

The video is a part of his "Fan Appreciation Week" across his social media platforms, with the Instagram video kick-starting a dunk video contest, with submissions due tonight. Sheesh, way to give us advance warning!

While it's plain to see the girl at the beginning of the video was in on the joke, and we assume the sleeping fellow was too, we're on the fence on the involvement of his mom. Either way, there's no doubting the terror in her face as she gets posterized. Not even a #sorrymom hashtag is going to make up for that, Jeremy.
