“If my life was done by what everyone else expected of me, I would’ve been done with playing a long time ago. I don’t really care what anyone else has to say,’’ said Lin, whose struggles on defense left the Knicks uninterested in a reunion, a source told The Post. But Hornets coach Steve Clifford praised Lin’s defense to the Charlotte Observer. “A lot of the times I’m fighting a lot of stigmas that people came up with and for fair reasons when I played four or five years ago. My game has progressed a lot,’’ Lin said. “What happened in Charlotte people didn’t really see because we were a small-market team. I feel like I’ve been working, and if people see it, they do, and if not, I still know where I want to get better at, where I’ve improved.”

Lin — pried away from the Hornets with a three-year, $36 million deal — was unquestionably the biggest offseason addition to a team that went just 21-61 last season. He said he wasn’t vexed about being snubbed in Sports Illustrated’s list of top 100 players or doubts about his defense or ability to run a team. “If my life was done by what everyone else expected of me, I would’ve been done with playing a long time ago. I don’t really care what anyone else has to say,’’ said Lin, whose struggles on defense left the Knicks uninterested in a reunion, a source told The Post.

It looks like the Hulk is coming down with a case of Linsanity. Basketball star Jeremy Lin, 28, who signed a three-year deal with the Nets in July, will be bringing his on-court heroics to the pages of Marvel Comics’ “Totally Awesome Hulk” series in December. The idea to have Lin team up with the Hulk sprung from the mind of a comics writer, New York-based Greg Pak, who was himself stricken with Linsanity during the 2011-12 NBA season, when Lin broke out with the Knicks and led the team to a seven-game winning streak.
