Jeremy Lin's performance as a Los Angeles Laker dipped quite a bit after a riveting stint with the New York Knicks wherein he led the Melo-Less Knicks to a magical late run for the Playoffs. It was well documented, labeled as "Linsanity" wherein people from all walks of life got glued on his dazzling performance game after game.
Years have passed and it seems that "Linsanity" is no longer relevant. It was overshadowed by the the underdog story of the reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry who advocates the "Work you butt off" mentality. But just like the aforementioned superstar, I'm 100 percent sure that Jeremy Lin knows that his legendary performance was not a fluke. He knows that he can rise to that level once more as long as he will continue to do hardwork during the off-season. And based on the training videos on his Instagram account, he will always be within striking distance.
He's now a Charlotte Hornet, under the leadership of the GOAT Michael Jordan who thinks highly of the Asian guard. That alone is a big sign that he has what it takes to be great in the NBA as Mike believes in him.
"We just got Jeremy Lin, who I think is going to be our biggest acquisition. His penetration, his shooting capability, his point guard savvy, he can really pass the basketball, his energy about the game of basketball something," said the Greatest of All Time Michael Jordan.
HARDWORK really pays off as he's looking to have another break out season for the Hornets, perhaps a "Linsanity 2.0". He's off to a great start as he notched 16 big points to go along with 4 assists and 3 rebounds in their win against the LA Clippers during the NBA Pre-Season game held in Mainland China.
