Connor Barwin offers up his couch for Jeremy Lin (Picture)
Toward the beginning of last season, Jeremy Lin had a slightly different financial situation than the one he currently has. For that reason, he was sleeping on a couch in his brother’s living room. Considering Lin wasn’t sure if he even had a future in the NBA, it was a fiscally responsible decision. Now that he has signed a three-year, $25.1 million contract with the Rockets, Lin doesn’t have to worry about sleeping on other people’s furniture anymore. But if he still wants to, Texans linebacker Connor Barwin has him covered.
Barwin tweeted the photo you see above on Tuesday night with the following text: “It’s official @JLin7 can shoot free throws from his new bed!”
He’s even got a hoop set up and everything. Some Knicks players felt as though Lin’s teammates would be bothered by his big contract. Now, they don’t have to worry about it. The Houston community has wasted no time taking him in.
