NY Knicks Stud Jeremy Lin

Couch-Sleeping Days Are Finally OVER!!!

NY Knicks breakout star Jeremy Lin -- the no-name from Harvard who's been sleeping on his brother's couch -- has some great news ... HE'S FINALLY MOVING INTO HIS OWN PLACE!!

Lin broke the news in D.C. yesterday on his way to the team bus ... telling a photog, "Yeah, I'm gonna go get my own place soon."

23-year-old Lin has been taking the NBA by storm ... ever since the Knicks threw the undrafted Ivy leaguer into the lineup earlier this month.

Lin had told reporters he was staying on his brother's couch, because he didn't have a guaranteed contract and he wanted more career security before plunking down his hard-earned cash on a pad.

But now that he's been KILLING it around the league, dropping 23 points and 10 assists against the Wizards last night ... seems Lin is confident this whole basketball thing could actually work out.

This guy has his head on straight. I wish him nothing but success in everything he does. He, unlike most pro-ballers, is actually capable of being responsible with his money. Good for him.

Many of those other athletes who are flaunting and balling for the world to see can learn a lesson or two from this guy. The nice thing is that he also has a Harvard degree to fall back on if basketball doesn't work out. How many of those other undereducated thugs can say that?

I'm sure Lin will have a long and successful career.

BUT, USING THE WIZARDS GAME IS NO EVIDENCE. THEY ARE THE WORST TEAM!!!!

IT'S TOO BAD CAUSE MOST ASIAN SPORTS PLAYERS CANT TAKE THE HEAT ON THE COURT. COUPLA BANGS HERE AND THERE AND THE KID IS OUT. CALL THE FIRST GAME A LUCKY SHOT. JUST WAIT TILL A DENNIS RODMAN TYPE GIVES HIM A BLIND KNOCK OUT CUT TO THE HEAD --- LIGHTS OUT AND SO IS THE NBA CAREER. LIKE, WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO YAO MING AND THAT DUDE IS TWICE THE SIZE AS THIS TOOTHPICK. EXACTLY... #TRUTH!!

PLEASE stop referring to guys as 'studs'. It's ridiculous and archaic. Surprised you didn't work 'jacked' in there somehow.

A pro athlete without 50 completely dumbass tattoos all over his body. It might be a sign of the apocalypse but if its a trend, I'm all for it.

and he'll have 47 chinamen living with him and they'll be heating the place with the kitchen stove and eating domestic animals. No need for toilets either. They'll just pull it up and s... in a hole.
