Jeremy Lin has been outspoken this past week, as he's yet to sign with an NBA team this offseason. While speaking in Taiwan, Lin broke down in tears, expressing his belief that the league "doesn't want" him anymore. Lin has received both an outpouring of support, as well as his fair share of criticism. One of those critics is WNBA star Chiney Ogwumike. While filling in on ESPN's "Jalen and Jacoby," Ogwumike said she understands where Lin is coming from as a competitor, but stresses that he's made over $60 million in his career, while also creating his own "Linsanity" brand.
Ogwumike continued by saying that Lin also has a Harvard degree to fall back on if his NBA career is indeed over.
Lin made his biggest splash back in 2012, where he was a breakout star for the New York Knicks. The following offseason, Lin was signed by the Houston Rockets.
Since then, he bounced around the league as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, Charlotte Hornets, Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks, and Toronto Raptors. A lot of that was due to the numerous injuries he suffered throughout his career.
Who knows? A team could come calling for Jeremy Lin if they suffer an injury at the guard position. But as Ogwumike states, he does have plenty of fall back options if his NBA career is officially over at the age of 30.
