Jeremy Lin was supposed to save Houston Rockets basketball last season. Instead, he got a big deal and put up smaller numbers.

Lin, while speaking to reporters in Taiwan, says that he wants to forget the nightmare that was last season. Lin added that the Rockets coaches lost faith in him that season.

“The coaches were losing faith in me; basketball fans were making fun of me. … I was supposed to be joyful and free, but what I experienced was the opposite. I had no joy, and I felt no freedom.

“The one thing I learned was how empty fame and worldly success really are. … The desire for success never stopped,” Lin said. “If the voice that you listen to the most isn’t God’s voice, then eventually you will experience that emptiness, confusion and misery that I felt when I listened to the voice of Linsanity.”

Lin averaged 13.4 points and 6.1 assists a game in the 2012-13 season, which aren’t terrible numbers, but not what they expected when they signed him to a huge three-year deal last offseason.
