Lin: Sacrifice ‘Big Word’ For Rockets
“I think our team can be deadly,” [Jeremy Lin said] in a taped interview to be aired on ESPN Radio’s “The Ian O’Connor Show” on Sunday morning.
“We don’t have the [postseason] experience,” Lin said, “so we’re going to have to make up for that somehow, some way. And we don’t really want to wait around and wait three years down the line to be able to compete for a championship; we want to do that now. … If everything jells together in an ideal situation, I think we can be a championship contender for sure. But that’s a big ‘if,’ and we understand that, and our coaching staff understands that.
“And I think our players right now, we’re all talking about being committed to winning a championship, and being able to sacrifice. I think sacrifice is going to be a big, big word for our team.”
