Jeremy Lin says his life has been more peaceful so far in Houston.credit: images.christianpost.com We all remember the media madness that surrounded Jeremy Lin last season when he started playing for the New York Knicks. Linsanity took place in one of the few places where it could be so overhyped: New York City. Lin become a folk hero literally overnight, and the world suddenly started caring about the mediocre Knicks. This isn’t an easy thing to handle for someone who really never had much of an influence in the NBA. Lin bounced around in the D-League and the end of various benches around the league, and was really thrown into the fire when the Knicks were desperate for point guard play. He handled it all admirably and humbly, from always saying the right things in interviews to the humorous stories of him sleeping on the couch of teammate Landry Fields. After signing with the Houston Rockets and moving away from the media center that is New York, Jeremy Lin has had a chance to breathe a little bit while adjusting to his new team. Via Slam Online: ‘It’s really, really low-key,’ Lin said.. ‘And it’s really peaceful. When I walk around, I don’t wear a hat or glasses or anything — unless I want to.’ Of course, you can thank James Harden for taking some of the attention away from Lin this year. Lin isn’t playing terribly well this year, but has been finding things to do to help the Rockets win games. Harden has been the focal point of the offense, while Lin is only 10 points per game on 34% shooting. It’s still early in the year, but it seems that the Lin critics had some merit last season, despite some of the ridiculous numbers he was putting up. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Jeremy Lin: Life Is More Peaceful This Season appeared first on Pass The Pill.
