Why Jeremy Lin’s skills coach believes the ex-Knick can still play in the NBA

Jeremy Lin announced earlier this month that he won’t return to the Chinese Basketball Association and is looking to make an NBA comeback.

Lin last played in the NBA with Toronto in 2018-19. He was a reserve guard for the NBA champions, playing in 23 regular season games.

Can the 32-year-old help an NBA team at this stage in his career? Teams will make that decision in November when we get to the NBA offseason.

“Here’s why Jeremy Lin should be back in the NBA and he should be back next season: No. 1, the NBA is a pick and roll game,” Nurse told SNY’s The Putback about his new book, ‘Pivot & Go.’ “It’s based on pick-and-roll reads and making plays out of it and Jeremy is one of the

As the number of laid-off workers seeking unemployment benefits continues to rise during the coronavirus pandemic, many people are looking for work. WGN News has started a series called “Back to Work” in an effort to help with those looking for jobs.

Neha O’Rourke is the founder, career and energy coach at Somewhere In Between Coaching and offers her advice on the job search.

“Remember life is about the journey, not the destination,” she said.

O’Rourke calls it the “Somewhere In Between.”

More often than not, when we’re in an undefined “between” place we are labelled as confused, in crisis, or merely an outsider. It’s time to reframe that thinking because it’s those moments in between where we learn, grow and experience life’s magic.

Rather than fixating on the outcome, she advises job seekers to remind themselves of empowering thoughts and past times
