After winning a title in 2019 with the Toronto Raptors, Lin failed to ink a deal with any NBA team. He shared the heartbreaking news at an event in Taiwan in July. As he broke down in tears, Lin said that he felt that the league had given up on him.
Come August, Lin took his talents to the Chinese Basketball Association. He played one season with the Beijing Ducks and averaged 22.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists.
In September, Lin announced his desire to leave the CBA to make a bid to return to the NBA. Per CBS Sports:
“This decision has really been the hardest in my life,” the former NBA guard said. “Every morning I would wake up at 4 a.m. or 5 a.m., thinking, thinking and thinking all the time. In the end, although Shougang [the Ducks] have treated me incredibly well … giving me everything I wanted, in the end, I feel that I still have NBA dreams. I still have time to play [there] and I have to chase this.”
Whether Jeremy Lin makes it back to the NBA is a matter of wait-and-see, but it sure is a great sight to see him in the presence of NBA players once again.
