HOUSTON From sleeping on his brother's couch to his knowledge of Houston, we're learing more aboutone 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.
