Former New York Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said he initially underestimated Jeremy Lin before “Linsanity.” D’Antoni, Lin’s coach in 2012 during his sudden ascendency in the NBA …- nbcnews.com
For Jeremy Lin, the first Taiwanese American in the league who was a point guard for the New York Knicks at the time, talk of the era revives some bittersweet reflections. “When I was going …- hoopshype.com
With less minutes than prior seasons, Lin averaged 14.5 points, his most since being on the Knicks. However, this is when he was struck by injuries. In the same 2016-17 season, Lin missed 46 games for the Nets due to injury. The next season, he ruptured his patella tendon in the team’s opener. He missed that entire year.
Lin averaged 19.8 points a game in the G-League and shot 42% from 3. But the call-up to the NBA never came. Thursday night, with the deadline for a call-up past, Jeremy Lin posted a heartbreaking …- nba.nbcsports.com
May 19, 2021 6:22 AM Jeremy Lin spent the 2020-21 season with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA G League. Jeremy Lin seems to have made peace with the end of his NBA playing days.
Early life. Jeremy Shu-How Lin was born in Torrance, California, on August 23, 1988. He was raised in a Christian family in the Bay Area city of Palo Alto, California. His parents, Gie-ming Lin and Shirley Lin (née Xinxin Wu), emigrated from Taiwan to the United States in the mid-1970s, first settling in Virginia before moving to Indiana, where they both attended universities to study .
Late Tuesday night, Lin clarified on his Instagram story he’s not officially retiring from the game, but he’s realistic about his NBA hopes.
Lin has never had the luxury of playing under a stable environment. The Knicks were and still are the opposite of stable. D’Antoni wanted to go with Lin but Melo wanted D’Antoni fired. Obviously, it’s a no-brainer to choose Melo over Lin and D’Antoni. It didn’t help matters that D’Antoni was replaced by one Mike Woodson.
Patrick Beverley became the starter because the team decided to go all-out in making James Harden the de facto PG, so a defensive player like Beverley was deemed a better fit on the starting 5 than Lin. But Lin still had a lot of very good moments as a 6th man type, and his actual minutes were more or less the same as Beverley’s.
McHale’s offense is Harden heavy which resorts to Lin spotting up or attacking in transition. Lin does best in an offense where he has the ball in his hands in the half court, making plays for himself and his teammates as he drives to the rim where he can create assists or finish at the bucket at a high rate.
Lin is a good player, but as far as I understand, he’s had a devastating knee injury last year, which takes a bit longer for recovery. I don’t think he’ll be a starter (most people with knee injuries, don’t — they have hard time competing against 19 year olds), but I think we’ll see a season or two from him.
