Jeremy Lin was one of the best Point Guard before he was got injured. He proved his skills as an professional basketball player. For me, when a player got injured, so many thoughts will come to their head. Like if they will play the same as before or can't go back the way he was before.
So I read the news from the clutchpoint where Jeremy Lin shared his thoughts on Good TV.
Jeremy Lin said this:
In English there's a saying, 'Once you hit rock bottom, the only is up.' But rock bottom just seems to keep getting more and more rock bottom for me. So, free agency has been tough. Because I feel like in some ways the NBA's kind of given up on me.
After the season I had to get ready for this asia trip and it was the last thing I wanted to do. Cause I knew for six weeks I have to put on a smile. I would have to talk about a championship that i don't feel like I really earned, I'll talk about the future that I don't know if I want to have, and honestly it's embarrassing.
I always tell myself if I have a son I dont him to make the NBA. You don't have to deal with fame, you don't have to deal with living your life and having all your failures on display to the whole world.
I came here with three basic points. Number one, don't give up. There is work and there is pain in the waiting but it reveals your character.
My second point. Don't give in. Because in your waiting there is purpose and the wait, it reveals your fears and God never wastes your pain.
My Last point. Don't lose hope. At the end of the day when we're all waiting, What's that one thing that we need? Hope. If there's no hope there's no point.
I know that I might never be the player that I thought I could be Actually, if you're looking at it, odds are, I won't. But I know that I still have freedom. That's what I want to tell you, Don't lose hope. Because when you know who you are it doesn't matter who you're not.
And the reality is, my life is not even the worst. A lot of you are going through something even worse and you know what it means to have your dreams crushed. These days I try not to dream because I feel like if I dream about it, God definitely won't give it to me. I know that lot of you feel hopeless in some situations.. A lot of you are like me, You're waiting.
I just want to be an example of someone who never gave up on God, And if that means in the upcoming season it gets even worse, then hopefully I'll have the guts to get back up here and say the same again next year. Imma be running that same race of life. What's that hashtag you've given me when I got injured? - #neverdone.
