Christian NBA player Jeremy Lin recently opened up about the sins he struggles with.

The 25-year-old Lakers guard admitted he is not as humble as some people may believe in a question-and-answer session on Facebook during what he called Fan Appreciation Week.

“I’m not humble. Pride is [the] greatest sin I struggle with,” Lin wrote. “But I’d say as I get older, go through more experiences in life and face tougher obstacles, I realize that I’m more sinful and need God more than I ever imagined.”

Lin, one of the NBA’s few Asian-American players, rose to fame in February 2012 when he scored 25 points in one game with the New York Knicks and led the team to a seven-game winning streak. He became the first player in NBA history to score at least 20 points and have seven assists in each of his first four starting games, which led to the phenomenon known as “Linsanity.”

He spent the next two seasons with the Houston Rockets, where he averaged a mere 28 minutes a game. But the Christian athlete is ready to put what he’s learned to use and begin a new chapter with the Los Angeles Lakers.
