Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin covers GQ Magazine November 2012 issue. The 24-year-old player talked about his fame in an article titled “Rocket Man” by Will Leitch.
In the cover photo, Lin poses with a basketball in his left hand wearing a dark Calvin Klein suit and Nike sneakers. The other photo, Lin is seen pulling his jacket wide open to reveal a Linsanity T-shirt. “You can’t ask for a city or a fan base to embrace somebody more than they embraced me,” Lin was quoted as saying in the magazine.
“I know it’s kind of silly to talk about it with only two years under my belt in the league, but going in before free agency, I was like, ‘I want to play in front of these fans for the rest of my career.’ I really did. I really wanted to play in front of the Madison Square Garden fans for the rest of my career, because they’re just unbelievable,” Lin added.
