HOUSTON -

Houstonians have caught the Linsanity bug.

The Houston Rockets are making a run for NBA star Jeremy Lin and, for many, he would instantly become a fan favorite among Houston's Asian community.

The Rockets have a huge sign outside of the Toyota Center which reads "Welcome back to Houston, Jeremy!"

Lin was a Rocket for a very short time, but eventually became a New York Knick.

Fans in Houston's Chinatown are hoping he stays a little bit longer this time, and signs a deal with the Rockets.
