Taipei, Feb. 14 (CNA) Taiwanese-American guard Jeremy Lin said Wednesday after his debut game with the Toronto Raptors that it felt almost like cheating to join a team with more than 40 wins.
Lin, who was signed by the Raptors two-and-a-half hours before the opening tip, finished the game with eight points, five rebounds and five assists in a 129-120 win over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
“I almost feel like I’m cheating, jumping into a 40-something win team,” Lin said after the game at Toronto. “I’m almost like, ‘Man, I feel like I don’t deserve this’ or something. But I’m happy to be here, I’m happy to be part of the squad.”
The 30-year-old has never been on a team that has won a playoff series and has been injured twice during his teams’ post-season campaigns. [FULL STORY]
