Lakers News: Jeremy Lin Disappointed In His Performances This Season

Jeremy Lin

This season has been a very inconsistent one for Los Angeles Lakers point guard Jeremy Lin. He is averaging his least points, and shooting his worst percentage from the field in four years. He was recently moved to a bench role in favor of Ronnie Price.

After the Lakers awful performance against the Indiana Pacers, Lin spoke about being disappointed in his season so far according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News:

Lin came into this year with decent expectations, especially after Steve Nash went down for the year, pushing Lin into the starting lineup. Though he has shown flashes, he has been unable to maintain a high level of play consistently.

As someone who excels with the ball in his hand, Lin has struggled adjusting to playing next to Kobe Bryant. Kobe, who is an extremely ball dominant player, has the highest usage rate of his career.

Though Lin has struggled so far, there is still a lot of time for him to turn everything around. He is still the best offensive option at the point guard position for the Lakers and at times, he has looked like the player who stormed onto the NBA radar in New York.

If Lin can keep his confidence up, he has a good chance of bringing the Lakers exactly what he believes he should be on a nightly basis.
