Jeremy Lin Finally Loves ‘Linsanity’ Just As Much as You Do


I’m very comfortable saying, “Oh, yeah, that was Linsanity.” That shows you where I’m at with it.

Originally, I used to be like, I’ll never do anything around Linsanity. I don’t need to do a documentary or any of that stuff, or return in time.

But then, I used to be like, I haven’t any problem with it. I’d actually like to since it was a special moment and in addition because we must be talking about it immediately. Linsanity has turn out to be so far more necessary and invaluable to me.

You simply mentioned that we must be talking about this. Why is that?

That was a moment that was so special for Asian Americans and minorities. It’s because there are so few of those moments. It’s because normally, society doesn’t typically have fun those form of moments. And since we don’t see that form of success from individuals who don’t look the part.

What’s the largest misconception about that period of your life?

The best way that I left Latest York and the attacks on my character. I don’t mind getting criticism for my game. Or if I look a certain way. If I play a certain way or whatever. But while you speak about my character, that hits otherwise to me personally.

My recollection is that the vast, overwhelming majority of fans weren’t upset with you for joining the Rockets. They were upset on the Knicks for not keeping you.

Yes and no. There was definitely quite a bit who were upset with me, however the narrative that got here out was first that I went to the Rockets to ask for extra money and that I used to be purposely putting Latest York in a troublesome position. That’s the narrative that was spun onto me and being called, like, you already know, certain things or chasing the cash.

The true story is, I actually went to my agent and told him, “Can we return to the Rockets and ask for a less lucrative offer? Because I actually need to return to Latest York, and I need to return to Latest York badly. And I don’t want there to be a poison pill.” That’s the true story. But that’s not the story that was thrown on the market.
