Jeremy Lin haters, beware. Jeremy Lin fanboys, calm down. The Houston Rockets point guard has, for the most part been out of the spotlight this summer, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been making noise.
Check him out working out at the Gatorade Sports Institute, the Rockets practice facility, and in his hometown of Palo Alto, California:
Lin is coming off his first season with the Rockets, in which he averaged 13.4 points and 6.1 assists, while starting all 82 games. An injury limited his play during the Rockets first round series loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, in which he shot a dismal 25 percent from the field(17 percent from the 3-point line), and averaged 4 points and 2 assists in his playoff series debut . Lin’s name was circulated in trade rumors in early July after the Rockets were set to sign Dwight Howard, but that died down.
Now, Lin is ready to relaunch for what will be a highly anticipated season for the Rockets. Stay tuned, it might be Lin-tastic.
