NBA Players Tweet About Jeremy Lin #Flashback

Jeremy Lin screams in Madison Square Garden as a member of the Knicks

It’s February, so not only is this the month of Chinese New Year, but it will always be the month in which Linsanity sprouted, in reverse, from the basketball heavens last year. In honor of last February, just so you can relive Linsanity, we’ve gathered some more NBA player tweets from that time:

“He’s not a fluke. Just the confidence he plays with, the pace, the understanding of the game. You can tell when a guy isn’t really that skilled but is just having a good stretch. This guy is skilled.”Tyson Chandler after the Knicks’ win over the Washington Wizards.

“Jeremy Lin is killing right now, I’m always rooting for the underdogs.”Rudy Gay via Twitter 

“Me too! Glad (Lin is) killin it!”Kevin Durant via Twitter in response to Rudy Gay

“OK. I GIVE IN!!!!!!! ITS LEGIT!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!”Reggie Miller via Twitter after Lin hit the game-winning three against the Toronto Raptors.

“We should have kept [Lin]. Did not know he was this good. Anyone who says they knew misleading U.”Daryl Morey, Houston Rockets GM on Twitter.

“It’s the quickness that’s low to the ground. I’m not saying he’s like [Bulls guard] Derrick Rose or anything, but when you watch D-Rose closely, he’s low to the ground and when you’re that low and that fast, you see [Lin’s success].”Bill Walker.

“I knew (Lin) could play basketball, and if you are a guard that can run the pick-and-roll in their coach’s offense, you have a very good chance to excel.”John Wall

“I think it’s a great story. It’s a testament to perseverance and hard work, and I think a good example for kids everywhere.”Kobe Bryant after Lin outscored him 38-31 in a Knicks win.

“Lin is the real deal. He’s the true point guard the Knicks haven’t had in years. He’s the guy the Knicks have needed all along.”Bernard King, New York Knicks Legend.

“My God, he’s a tremendous player.” —Jerry West, NBA Hall-of-Famer

Nate Robinson calls Jeremy Lin a “motherfucker” on Christmas!

Oh joy! What a Christmas! The Houston Rockets dismantled the Chicago Bulls on the birth of Christ, and Nate Robinson came off the bench to find God.

Nate Robinson calls Jeremy Lin motherfucker on Christmas!

Despite the final score, the Bulls put a slight scare into the Rockets as Robinson caught fire helping the Bulls trim the lead from 35 points to 15 in the fourth quarter.

During the run, Nate found his way into the top of the key, raised up, and hit a jumper. Lin, who was covering him, found himself trying to catch up after being screened and slightly undercut the 5-7 guard.

Nate hit the shot, but fell on the play. No foul was called. There is no God..

As the camera panned to Nate with Lin dribbling up the court, you didn’t have to be a native speaker to see that Nate called Lin a “motherfucker”. Oh dear mother mary sweet Jesus! Continue reading “Nate Robinson calls Jeremy Lin a “motherfucker” on Christmas!”
