Well, he is a cool and consistent customer now. One thing haunts Jeremy Lin in his NBA career: consistency. From the high ends of the Linsanity era to the low ends of a 21-win season at Los Angeles Lakers. But Lin looks comfortable with the Hornets, having shrugged off this problem.
Jeremy feels he has finally found a well-defined role at Charlotte Hornets, which helped him perform consistently this season. He is cherishing the new role.
“I feel like I have figured who I’m going to be as a player,” Lin said in a CBS Sports interview. “The game has definitely slowed down for me and I feel like I know what my brand of basketball is. But the one thing that I feel veterans have had that I don’t, is some sort of consistency. That’s what I would like to have at some point. Consistency in terms of location and team.”
Rumors of his move to Chicago Bulls can be dismissed now. Lin has signed a two-year deal this summer with the Hornets. Coming off the bench, he averages 11.7 points and 3.2 assists in 22 minutes per game. Lin is happy with the role, which his helping him to show the kind of performance he craved during his stint with the Lakers.
“My biggest takeaway from the whole experience was probably my growth as a person,” Lin clarified. “Spiritually just trying to become a better person, in terms of just staying positive and perceiving, regardless of the circumstance. I think that was a big test of faith for me.”
