Part of the Jeremy Lin lore has been that he had been sleeping on friends couches. He'd been crashing on his brother's couch in New York as well as teammate Landry Fields' couch. An NBA player. Crashing on couches. Lin didn't want to invest in a hotel room or apartment considering the Knicks were considering cutting him just two weeks ago. 

Now? He's feeling a little better about his chances to stick around. So he's getting himself a place , thanks to a former Knick. From the New York Daily News
The Knicks phenom, who in the span of six games has gone from benchwarmer to the cover of Sports Illustrated, has sublet a two-bedroom apartment from former Knick David Lee in a swanky Trump Tower, sources told the Daily News.

No, not that Trump Tower.

The Trump Tower in downtown White Plains, a 35-story building right off Main St. that’s home to several other Knicks players and some New York Rangers as well. It’s the same two-bedroom apartment that another Knicks star, Amar’e Stoudemire, rented before he moved into his palatial pad in Manhattan, sources said.
via Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin is homeless no more — he’s moving on up to a swanky bachelor pad in White Plains  - NY Daily News.

It wasn't his only option, though, a Knicks fan offered Lin a free apartment during his stay

CBSSports.com's Ken Berger reported yesterday on the Knicks' options in their pursuit of keeping Lin this summer, should his incredible ride of quality play continue.  

And hey! Now he can buy his own couch!

Actually he passes    hes more  a nash    would rather make others better and win   than put score and deal with whatever    &nb
sp;   i hope he continues his good play     &
nbsp;  cant expect last week to be the norm   but for knicks all they need from him is  solid pt guard play   and like tonight  10 pts and the assists     setting others up     the kid is bright    he surely can run the team     &
nbsp;  if melo cant mesh    you put him on 2nd team with douglas  shumpert  jeffries and novak

I'm happy for Jeremy Lin, he's a hard worker and deserves everything good he gets from here on, but Knicks fans are the biggest morons you will ever see in the NBA.  Jeremy Lin or not, the Knicks are a below average team and once Carmelo gets back on the court he will ruin and continuity the Knicks built with Lin.  The only reason the Knicks will probably make the playoffs is because of how horrible the teams in the Eastern Conference are.  Seriously, if the Knicks were in the Western Conference they would already be eliminated from the playoffs.  Get a clue Knicks fans, Jeremy Lin is a fun player to watch, so do him a favor and stop acting like he is the next Kobe Bryant.
