New city, same old Jeremy Lin sleeping on couches

Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin Getty Images

Remember back when “Linsanity” swept New York like nothing since Sex and the City? Part of the story was how Jeremy Lin wasn’t even sure he would stick with the team and slept for a while on Landry Field’s couch. It became a joke on twitter with Fields sending out pictures of the couch.

Now, Lin’s got an oversized three-year contract with the Houston Rockets (some accused him of chasing the money)… but some things never change.

Fellow Rocket Chandler Parsons tweeted out a text he got from Lin (via Sports Illustrated).


Glad to see the money hasn’t changed Lin.

Glad to see Harvard graduates use slang shorthand in texts (I figured they spelled everything out).

And good on Parsons for tweeting it out.

    He’s probably got $10k worth of furniture coming tomorrow.

    I guess he could have stayed at a ritzy hotel penthouse though. Probably no Xbox 360. Hooray for teammates.

    Did you really have to throw in the “chasing the money” line in this “article”?

    True false…. If yao ming played in toronto instead of houston…. Lin would be a raptor this season….

    Jeremy Lin gives a whole new meaning to the name “Moochie Norris”
