Jeremy Lin Rockets News: Houston Star Needs To Improve Every Aspect Of Game
Just about a year ago, there was no athlete in the world as famous as Jeremy Lin. He took advantage of his popularity by securing several endorsement deals and a big contract with the Houston Rockets. Lin had his ups and downs in Houston during the 2013-13 season, but his season came to an end when his team lost in the first round of the playoffs.
Even an early playoff exit, however, will not keep Lin from making the news. The superstar knows he has an awful lot to improve upon during the offseason if he wants to make a run at a championship next season.
"I have a long way to go. I have a really long way to go," Lin told the Houston Chronicle after the Rockets were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the top-seeded Oklahoma Thunder 103-94 on May 3.
"I'm really excited for the offseason, just because I can get better, not that I wanted it to start. There are so many things I wish I was better at after playing my first whole season and realizing this is what separates good players from great players."
When the Houston Chronicle asked Jeremy Lin what he needs to improve on specifically, Lin said, "everything."
"I can talk about anything, and it would be something that I would want to be better, whether it's defense, jump shots, making decisions, being quicker, being more explosive, being more consistent," said Lin, "I think I'm as motivated now as I've been my whole life."
It is nice to see Jeremy Lin still striving for success on the basketball court. He is already set for life, but he still has the heart of a winner. He is not going to sit on his millions comfortably. He wants to help lead the Houston Rockets to a championship and he will not rest until that finally happens.
