HOUSTON A fan on Thursday called for Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey to admit mistake for his preseason decision to cut Jeremy Lin, the point guard who has recently become an overnight sensation for the New York Knicks.
And, well, Morey agreed.
"We should have kept (Lin)," Morey responded via Twitter. "Did not know he was this good. Anyone who says they knew misleading (you)."
The Rockets brought Lin into camp, but with Kyle Lowry, Goran Dragic and Johnny Flynn already on the roster, passed on the Harvard graduate.
Morey said he was happy for Lin, saying he has a great future. The exchange began with Morey, who was taking questions via Twitter, was asked about Lin.
"He is a very good player but Linsanity was not happening here this year," Morey said.
