From the article: he is enormously popular in the United States and Asia, particularly because he was sleeping on his brother’s couch as a penniless unknown before getting his big break at the injury-hit Knicks.
C’mon, PENNILESS? The man is making $760,000 a year when he was sleeping on his brother’s couch FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
If that’s penniless, I’ll take it.
Hope he listens to his mother & behaves.
