Jeremy Lin is still trying to sleep on his teammates’ couches

Ball Don't Lie

One of the many storylines that dotted Jeremy Lin's shocking 2012 ascension from training camp fodder to an NBA Player of the Week award recipient and two-time Sports Illustrated cover subject was the so-cute tale behind his time spent on former teammate Landry Fields' living room couch. Lin, who shuttled back and forth between the New York Knicks' D-League affiliate in Erie, Pa., and the big leagues before nearly being cut by the team before his breakout February, was forced to sleep on Fields' couch while he was with New York for those factors and more — including the scrunched up lockout-influenced schedule, the fact that he and Fields were fast friends, and the centuries-long lack of real estate options in the greater New York City metropolitan area.

Signed by Houston over the summer, if reluctantly, it appears as if Lin is having the same troubles in the fourth-largest city in America. As tweeted by new Rockets teammate Chandler Parsons on Sunday afternoon, Lin can't seem to get away from couchin' it up. From Parsons' Twitter account, here's a screengrab from the Rocket forward's phone:

And Parsons' quip, in light of Lin's three-year, $25.1 million contract (that will pay him near-maximum money in the third year of his deal):

Sorry to bug u, Jeremy Lin, but you can afford a Motel 6. They'll leave the light on for you. And 13 basic cable channels.

Also, Jeremy? Sorry to bug u, but never change.

UPDATE: Lin's really pressing the issue, now.
