At Least One NBA GM Admits He Was Wrong About Jeremy Lin

Well, as the NBA collectively wonders how they missed Jeremy Lin, at least one GM has waived the white flag and admitted defeat. After spending his rookie season with the Golden State Warriors, where played in just 39 games, Lin was briefly picked up by the Houston Rockets this year, before being waived to make room for Samuel Dalembert. Lin was picked up on waivers by the Knicks, where he finally got his chance last week. The rest is history.

Do you think the Rockets have any regrets? From Houston GM Daryl Morey (via Twitter):

So that's one team, and you have to give Morey credit for his honesty on that front. We're still waiting on the Warriors' official mea culpa. And 27 others, for that matter.
