Bad injury could retire Jeremy Lin
Jeremy Lin’s basketball career may have come to an end after he suffered a severe skull injury last Sunday in the Taiwanese league.
The former Knicks phenomenon known as “Linsanity” received a severe blow from former NBA player Chris McCullough, forcing him to leave the field in the second period of the match between the Kaohsiung Steelers and New Taipei Kings (92-89).
“I can’t promise that I will continue to play basketball next year. It’s something I decide season after season,” Jeremy Lin admitted to Focus Taiwan.
The 34-year-old Harvard-educated base has agreed to join Taiwan’s Kaohsiung Steelers after spending the past year and a half playing in China.
Outside of the 2010 draft access jobs, his career took a meteoric leap after his stint with the Knicks. Since then, he signed with the Houston Rockets to later play for the Lakers, Hornets, Nets, Hawks and Raptors where he would win the championship ring in 2019 after beating his former team the Warriors in the Finals.
His NBA career averages were 11.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.1 steals in 480 official games (221 starts).
