If I was one of those type of guys who saved Tweets just to say I told you so (I am not that type of guy, because I am also wrong about a lot things), I would bring up all the people bashing me for Jeremy Lin was just an average player at best ,who caught fire for a month, but was no superstar.
I tried to tell people who no matter your nationality, you have to sustain elite level status to become a superstar and Lin was just a flash in the pan. I don’t blame Lin at all for cashing out, that is what you are supposed to do when you are hot and GMs think you are the next big thing.
The Rockets have made a lot of shrewd moves over the last year, but overpaying for Lin wasn’t one of them. They are trying to get rid of him, but no one wants to take on that bloated contract for essentially a backup point guard.
A source with direct knowledge of the situation confirms Rockets working hard to move Jeremy Lin … very limited interest for teams.
