Jeremy Lin on how free agency gets harder for him year after year.

It seems things are not going exceptionally well for Jeremy Lin's career after he won a championship with the Toronto Raptors last season. Even though he didn't play many minutes with the Raptors, Jeremy Lin is struggling to find a new team for the upcoming season and this is affecting him on a much greater scale.

Lin is currently touring around Asia, speaking about the NBA lifestyle and what needs to be done in order to be successful in a very competitive league. During the show, Lin pretty much started crying after speaking about the next stage in his career which might not even be in the NBA, but rather something else. Teams are no longer showing interest in his services and according to Lin, this is also kind of unfair because he believes he puts the most work in.

"I've given more of myself to God every single year and every year it gets harder. And in English, there is a saying and it says once you hit rock bottom the only way is up. Rock bottom just seems to be getting more and more rock bottom for me. So the free agency has been tough cause I feel like in some ways the NBA's kind of given up on me."

Lin would also go on to say how he didn't feel comfortable doing the Asian tour after the season and speak about the championship ring he won that he might not even deserved. Lin said he is very unhappy with the current situation of being without a team next season and also said these are the types of situations he wouldn't want his son to go through if he decides to try and play in the NBA one day.

Despite winning an NBA championship, it's obvious things are not looking good for Jeremy Lin who is soon turning 31 and is struggling to find a team. Obviously, if he wants to continue playing basketball, there are other options in Europe or either Asia which is becoming a big market for former NBA players seeking to play basketball for a decent amount of money.

Lin's experience and basketball IQ might come in handy for certain teams in the league, and apparently, he is still in good shape so there shouldn't be any obstacles for a contending team to sign him on a veteran minimum.
