Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin said during an event in Taipei, Taiwan that the Rockets “coaches were losing faith” in him last season.
“I was supposed to save Houston basketball. I became so obsessed with becoming a great basketball player, trying to be Linsanity, being this phenomenon that took the NBA by storm. The coaches were losing faith in me, basketball fans were making fun of me.” Jeremy Lin said to a group of 20,000 people in Taiwan.
Lin averaged 13.4 points, 1.1 threes, 3.0 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.6 seals per game last season while shooting 44.1 percent from the field. Now with an offensive weapon like Dwight Howard, those assists should sky rocket this season. The points for Lin should increase by at least a couple, he could possibly average 15 points a game this season with Harden and Howard leading the team in scoring.
This season the Houston Rockets have a chance to make some noise in the league and Lin has a good chance at saving Houston Rocket’s basketball with the team he has now.
