Sports Illustrated: @HoustonRockets GM Daryl Morey Defends Jeremy #Lin. @jlin7

LinsanityDespite persistent rumors Jeremy Lin could be traded by mid-season, Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey is coming to the defense of his point guard, reports Sports Illustrated.

The topic came up during a Q&A on Reddit.

Morey blamed #Lin’s slow start to his longer than expected recovery from injury and unrealistically high expectations caused by the period of Linsanity when he was with the Knicks.

“Last year was Jeremy’s 1st full year in the league. Essentially his rookie year. If last season would have been his rookie year and he never would have played in New York, right now people would be appropriately talking about him incessantly as one of the top young rookie stars in the league. “
