“To the next generation of Asian American ballers…you guys got next.”

Jeremy Lin just posted a message on Instagram that strongly hints that his journey in the NBA and as a basketball player has come to an end:

“…After a year in the CBA where I overcame mental barriers from my past, I KNEW I was still an NBA player.”

“…I told myself I just need ONE ten-day contract, one chance to get back on the floor and I would blow it out the water.”

“And like I’ve said before…dream big dreams, risk big heartache.”

“I’m blessed and had an NBA career beyond my wildest dreams. I had the luxury of taking a year to chase a dream w/o worrying about paying bills…”

“To the next generation of Asian American ballers – man, I so wish I could have done more on the NBA court to break more barriers — [especially] now — but you guys got next.”

“I didn’t get it done, but I have no regrets. I gave my ALL and hold my head high. As for what’s next, I trust what God has in store for me.”

In Lin’s second season with the New York Knicks, he played so well New Yorkers called his must-see T.V. performances “Linsanity.”

Over his 10-year NBA career, Lin played for eight teams and even won a ring with the Toronto Raptors.

No doubt, Lin has done what few basketball players achieve and many strive for: he played a decade in the NBA.

That is nothing to undersell and nothing he should feel as a letdown.
