Found July 18, 2012 on Extra Pine Tar:

Texans linebacker Connor Barwin tweeted this picture and said that Lin could even shoot free throws from his new bed. Making Connor Barwin my new favorite linebacker.

You may remember last year when Jeremy Lin was first sleeping on his brother’s couch and then on Landry Fields’. Well it’s good to know that he has options in Houston but with that new contract of his he could make his entire house a couch and still have enough left over to buy all of the Knicks “Lin” jerseys from Mitch Modell before he goes bankrupt.

Did the Rockets over pay for a middle of the way point guard who can only finish with one hand and turns the ball over way more than anybody in his price range should? Sure.

But this is the Rockets we are talking about here. They haven’t had much to be excited about since Yao so we’ll let them have their moment. Even if that moment was grossly overpaid for.
