Jeremy Lin will come into next season donning the purple-and-gold. He will be moving on from James Harden and the Houston Rockets to team up with Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers in the backcourt instead.

Lin was welcomed by the Lakers on Thursday, and made it clear that he's moved on from "Linsanity" and is looking to put that behind him.

"I'm not trying to relive that banner season," he said. "I think that's been a big weight off my shoulders and I think that's very important for me as a player. I'm not trying to recreate a 'Linsanity.' I'm not trying to be that phenomenon that happened in New York. I think I just want to be myself more than ever."

Lin's legend grew when he became a sensation on the New York Knicks in the 2011-12 season. However, he ended up signing with the Rockets the offseason right after, and he hasn't really had the same magic ever since.

Lin, 25, averaged 12.5 points and 4.1 assists per game last season. He still has a lot of potential to improve, and I expect to see that happen next season in LA. We'll see how it goes for him.
