Los Angeles Lakers head coach Byron Scott has gone on record, repeatedly, stating defense will be a huge focus for the team under his guidance. If that's the case, Jeremy Lin is doing all the right things this summer as he prepares for his first season under the purple and gold spotlight. Lin posted a video on his Instagram account showing off bits of his routine, which were focused on his defense, footwork and explosiveness.

Here's what Lin had to say about his summer training:

This offseason I have been working really hard on my defense, footwork, and explosiveness. A huge component that I needed to work on is my core stability (having good posture, being able to stay low in my defensive stance, and being able to stay balanced while absorbing contact). Only 19 days left till training camp...can't wait to get back on the court! #LakersNation #PurpleandGold
