Lin told The Daily Show host Trevor Noah that on Thursday as he explained a social media post confirming that he had missed out on an NBA contract this season. “It wasn’t my official retirement but it was definitely something where I am kind of realising that there’s not much else I can do to prove that I belong in the NBA,” he told Noah. “So every challenge that I’ve been given, every ask of me … I’ve done and performed well so for me it’s kind of realinsing hey, it doesn’t really matter what I do, there’s not much else that I could do to earn a spot or even a chance to fight for a spot.

While he was proud of his short season in the G League, he never heard from a team willing to call him up. “For reasons I’ll never fully know, that chance never materialized,” he wrote. “But I proved I’m better than ever and an NBA player. And like I said before … dream big dreams, risk heartache. “I’m blessed. I’ve had an NBA career beyond my wildest dreams. I had the luxury of taking a year to chase a dream without worrying about paying bills.”

“When I’m done, I’m done,” Lin said, responding to whether he will take his experience as a player in the NBA and Chinese Basketball Association, where he played for the Beijing Ducks last season, into a coaching role once he retires. “Unless it’s with my foundation or underprivileged children or something like that when I’m done you won‘t see me on the sidelines,” he said. “I will be with my foundation and that‘s what I want to do when I’m done.”
