HOUSTON – From sleeping on his brother's couch to his knowledge of Houston, we're learing more about one of the Rockets' newest stars.
A profile of player Jeremy Lin is the cover story of the November 2012 issue of GQ magazine.
The magazine says a year ago no one knew Lin’s name, but with the NBA season about to start, “it’s proving time: can this soft-spoken boy wonder lead a franchise of his own?”
In the article, Lin talks about his rise from the third-string bench to international superstar.
“What the heck? That was my main thought: What the heck?” Lin tells GQ. “People are standing outside my brother’s classroom [Lin’s elder brother, Josh, is a dental student at NYU] and showing up outside my grandmother’s house in Queens.”
He also discusses the time he slept on his brother’s couch in New York City.
Lin tells GQ he doesn’t know but just a few people on the Rockets team and that he “doesn’t know that much about Houston.”
