Jeremy Lin Rumors: Why Houston Rockets Regret Signing Star

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 05/20/13 09:54AM EDT

When the Houston Rockets acquired Jeremy Lin in the offseason, fans of the basketball team were overjoyed. Last year there was not a single athlete in the entire world as popular as Jeremy Lin was. After all, he led the New York Knicks to a ton of wins even though everybody counted them out.

Unfortunately, the Houston Rockets may already regret signing Jeremy Lin. Was he really worth all of the money that the team gave him?

As a member of the Houston Rockets, Jeremy Lin still battled the injury bug all season long. Even when he was on the basketball court, he was really no better than just an average player. Even though he remains a superstar off of the court, he plays like a bench player on the court.

When the Houston Rockets first signed Jeremy Lin, they were expecting to get one of the best point guards in the game today. That's why they opened up their pocket books and paid him more than any other team was willing to.

Then again, there is another side to the story. While the Rockets are not getting their money's worth on the basketball court, they do make a ton of money off of Jeremy Lin merchandise. Lin has such a cult following that it really doesn't matter how poorly he performs in games. Fans will still buy his jerseys and they will still show up to watch him play.

If you were a fan of the Houston Rockets before Jeremy Lin showed up, chances are you wish the team would have never signed him because he has not lived up to the hype. If you are a Houston Rockets fan just because of Jeremy Lin, then of course you still love the fact that the team decided to pay him all that money just to be a glorified mascot.

Do you believe the Houston Rockets should regret signing Jeremy Lin? Please leave your thoughts on the subject in a comment below.
