Jeremy Lin was once the talk of the league with his flash to super stardom known as “Linsanity”.
This crazy rise to fame occurred in the 2011-2012 season, Lin’s first season as a New York Knick. What added to his rise to stardom in addition to his play, was his ethnicity. Lin was the first American of Chinese or Taiwanese descent to play in the NBA and is one of the few Asian Americans to have played in the league. He was also the first Asian American to win an NBA Championship, having done so with the Toronto Raptors in 2019.
Following his Knicks tenure, Lin played for the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, Charlotte Hornets, Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks, and Toronto Raptors. However, nothing compared to his play with the Knicks where he earned a starting position, led the team on an eight-game win streak, and helped the team clinch a playoff spot. But in August 2019, he left the NBA and signed with the Ducks, where he became a Chinese Basketball Association All-Star. This leads us to the story we have today.
Jeremy Lin has officially left the Ducks and announced that he is actively searching for a job in the NBA again. Lin was one of the stars in the CBA but felt like he had more goals left to accomplish. He did not openly announce what goals he wished to achieve, but after being the first Asian American to win a championship, it is unclear what he really has left to prove.
Nonetheless, it is his life and dreams left to accomplish. For the time being, there are no real frontrunners to sign Lin. Especially with all the younger talent that is in the league today. It will be exciting to see if there is still any “Linsanity” magic left in Jeremy Lin.
