(NEW YORK) — Houston Rockets point guard is still a very popular player in the league, but has had an up-and-down season. He is on the verge of becoming an All-Star, but he doesn’t think he’s deserving of the nod.
In Lin’s first season in Houston, he’s averaging 12.3 points and 6.3 assists per game. While Lin isn’t having a terrible season, he admitted to NBA.com that he shouldn’t be an All-Star.
“Uh, no,” Lin said on Wednesday night. “That’s the furthest thing from my mind, to be honest, being on a five-game losing streak. I don’t even care right now, I’m just trying to get a win.”
While Lin was not named a starter, he was the third-leading vote getter among Western Conference guard. The fans voted him ahead of players like James Harden, Russell Westbrook, and Tony Parker.
Last season, Lin set the sports world on fire when playing for the New York Knicks. “Linsanity” swept the country as the former undrafted guard out of Harvard was torching teams left and right on a nightly basis. Over the offseason, Lin bolted New York for Houston when he signed a three-year deal for $25 million.
