NEW YORK CITY - Jeremy Lin was busy playing a game of Scrabble on his cell phone when it rang.
He answered it and it was a representative with the Houston Rockets Nat "Nothing But Net" Toddybicken, 61, telling him that they had agreed to his request of a 3-year, $25.1 million contract.
Jeremy was so thrilled he almost dropped the phone as he yelled out "HO-LY GUA-CA-MO-LE!"
The Chinese-American round ball player had expressed to Knicks owner James "Fu Manchu" Dolan that he wanted to stay in the Big Apple.
But Dolan told him that there was no way that he could pay him the ridiculous amount of money he wanted. Dolan reminded him that he had just attained Jason Kidd from the Dallas Mavericks who will most probably take over the Knick's guard position.
The young man who created the phenomenon known as Linsanity grinned and told him that he was glad to get to return to Houston, and his favorite restaurant Tacos, Tacos, & Mucho More Tacos.
Lin remarked that Rufus Reno with Sports Balls Illustrated Daily had told him that the Mexican restaurant had already named a taco in his honor calling it The Jeremy Lin Lemon Chicken Chow Mein Diet Taco.
SIDENOTE: Jeremy has already been invited to a Texas-style barbecue at Nolan Ryan's ranch where the baseball legend will cook up his famous Fastball Fajitas and his patented Inebriated Beans (Drunken Beans known as Frijoles Borachos).
