Den 32. årige guard Jeremy Lin forbereder sig på et comeback til verdens bedste basketballliga. Det meddeler Lin på sin Instagramprofil efter en vellykket sæson i Kina. 22 point, 5,7 rebounds og 5,6 assists, en plads på allstar-holdet og årets defensive spiller blev det til for Lin i den forgangende sæson. Men nu er fokus rettet på at blive klar til Free Agency i NBA. Datoen og eksekveringen af årets Free Agency er stadigvæk uklart i skrivende stund.

This is gonna be my realest caption ever lol We love to tell kids to dream big but we don’t often talk about the fears they might face. Truth is, fear is a BEAST. It snuck up on me. Through all my career failures, setbacks and injuries. Through the pain of being traded, cut and having no offers. Through the depths of global embarassment, unmet expectations and crushed dreams. Through it all, I found myself a year ago battered – carrying so much emotional baggage. I signed in the CBA, it took a whole season, but God really came through for me. He taught me how to play to win again vs playing to not lose. To know the shots going in vs hoping its going in. To dream big again vs thinking everythings a setup for disappointment. To be a killer on the court with the talent He gave me 100% for His glory. This isn't about chasing the shadow of Linsanity. Or proving anyone right or wrong. Or about money, fame, reputation or power. It's about God's glory and kingdom. It's about goin right at all my past traumas and fears, instead of being forever crippled by them. It's ultimately about when I see God face-to-face that I could say through HIS strength, I lived with big big faith. I couldn't sleep right for 3 weeks with this decision weighing over me. I was brought to tears trying to verbalize the struggle to my family. I analyzed facts, but the reality is that faith ultimately comes down to taking a step towards what you can't see yet. Despite being beyond grateful with sooo much that the CBA, China, and all my Asia fans gave me this past season, today I decided to not return to the Beijing Ducks next season. Instead I will be waiting for free agency and preparing myself for the NBA — and continuing my greatest dream. And maybe the result is a footnote, and this decision today was the true test. New chapter, new mindset, new me. Work smarter, aim higher, reach further. And smile along the way! 2 Timothy 1:7 #FaithOverFear

Før Lins sæson i Kina spillede han for Atlanta Hawks og Toronto Raptors i 2018-19 sæsonen, hvor han i 74 kampe snittede 9,6 point og 3 assists. Lin var med til at besejre Golden State Warriors med Raptors og blev mester, selvom han kun snittede tre minutter i slutspillet.

 

Det bliver utroligt spændende at se, om Lin stadigvæk har en plads i NBA, og om der er nogle hold, som vil betale ham. Lin har spillet en god sæson i Kina, men der er en stor usikkerhed omkring hvorhvidt, det kan tages med til NBA på grund af den kinesiske ligas niveau. Hvis den 32. årige guard kan levere til træninger, burde der være en plads til ham som veteran bænkspiller på et hold. Det burde derfor ikke være utænkeligt, at Linsanity kan være tilbage i ligaen. Nok ikke som den tid, som vi alle husker, hvor han tog ligaen med storm og Linsanity blev født. Men Lin burde have en plads på bænken som veteran.
