One of the most persistent comments from his critics is that he’s overrated. They say if he wasn’t Asian American, he would be an afterthought, just another NBA player.
Love him or hate him, there’s no doubt Lin is one of the most fascinating players in the NBA.
It’s no wonder then that Google has ranked him the second most searched NBA player of 2013 right behind the best NBA player, Lebron James, reports All Ball.
Lin is even ahead of such mega names as Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard who are 3-5 in that order.
One of Lin’s greatest admiral traits is that in this day and age of overpaid players, he’s simply a likable guy.
He’s out with a back spasm right now, his second injury in as many weeks, but remains positive.
“It’s been a tough couple weeks. I know everything happens for a reason. I’m going to keep staying positive, keep working hard with whatever role I have, whether that’s rehabbing or playing.” he told Ultimate Rocket.
According to SB Nation, his injury is described by assistant coach Kelvin Sampson as fairly bad. Lin wasn’t even able to sit on the team plane on the way back from Sacramento.
He’s expected to miss tomorrow’s game against the Chicago Bulls.
