This photo was staged. Jeremy Lin apparently doesn’t have a bed of his own (either that or that’s one fantastic sofa bed).
Jeremy Lin took over the basketball world last season and managed to parlay a string of unbelievable games with the New York Knicks into a 25.1 million dollar contract with the Houston Rockets. Now that the Rockets are paying near-max money for a guy they used to be paying near minimum for, it would seem that Jeremy has it all: the dream come true, the storybook ending, the victory over adversity. All that and 25.1 million dollars. Yup, he’s got it all – except somewhere to sleep.
Worldwide phenomenon Jeremy Lin is STILL sleeping on people’s couches – or at least trying to.
Check out JLin’s text to now-teammate (aka new Landry Fields) Chandler Parsons:
Now while Parsons let the whole world in on a private text conversation, he failed to do the most basic thing: answer Lin’s question, forcing the hotshot pointguard to ask again:
Is Jeremy Lin worth 25.1 million over 3 years? Probably not. Could that money have gone to a nicer, more down-to-earth person? Hell no.
