It's hard to find remnants of Jeremy Lin in New York these days. Not only is Lin gone, his best friend on the New York Knicks, Landry Fields, also left town for a sweeter offer in Toronto.
And before an exhibition game between the Raptors and the Knicks, Fields revealed to the New York Post that he has even disposed of the couch that Lin slept on while crashing at Fields' New York apartment.
"It was a rental couch," Fields said. "I had to give it back. I wonder if they even know (the history). It's probably boxed up."
Lin, who was on the end of the Knicks' bench for the first part of the 2011-12 season, was sleeping on the couches of Fields and his brother, Josh, before his dizzying rise to stardom in February. Lin famously crashed on Fields' couch the night before scoring 25 points and tallying seven assists against the Nets on Feb. 4.
Even though Lin and Fields have left the Big Apple, and the couch in question could be a garbage dump somewhere, Lin is still sleeping on teammates' furniture.
Some things never change.
