The NY Times posted this article on Sunday about how much Jeremy Lin is enjoying being out of the spotlight this season. Jeremy was quoted Sunday morning at the Rockets’ shootaround in Los Angeles with the following:
“It’s really, really low-key. And it’s really peaceful. When I walk around, I don’t wear a hat or glasses or anything — unless I want to.”
I like how Jeremy is able to focus more on his game this season in Houston. He’s had some good moments, and also some bad moments that probably has made his doubters who predicted he wouldn’t be as great as last season in New York feel vindicated, and that it’s time to try winning some money at Party Casino or something.
But I believe once the stable of new Rockets players get to know each other better, start developing some confidence, and Kevin McHale gets back to the team from his leave of absence, Jeremy’s point totals and shooting percentage will start going up, and the turnovers will go down. He’s too smart and too much of a hard worker to be a disappointment.
