NBAers React to Linsanity

A tweetcap.

Three things that don’t seem to be going away anytime soon: Twitter, the NBA and Linsanity. Last night, after Jeremy Lin drained the game-winning 3-pointer that gave the Knicks their sixth consecutive victory, the three intersected when a bunch of the world’s best hoopers hit the social network with their thoughts on the red hot Knicks point guard, all of which were gathered into the gallery above for your enjoyment. Check it out, and try to sum up your thoughts on this lincredible run in under 140 characters in the comment section.

    I wonder how long it is going to take for perkins to call out one of these dudes for tweeting. Since you know, nba players shouldn’t tweet. He apparently feels very strongly about that.

    Watch out nash, perkins doesn’t like it when good nba dudes tweet. He’s gonna call you out. He’s going to say, “see nash, that’s why you don’t have any rings. Because you tweet and watch basketball”

  • Dirk Nowitzki’s Mane

    Shane Battier ftw.

  • capostat

    nah, he’s waiting for lebron again. Do it lebron! LOL

  • robb

    @23 perkins only criticizes Lebron because everything is Lebron’s fault. Nash is a saint. No D? It doesn’t matter. Undeserving MVP? It doesn’t matter, he’s Steve Nash and everybody likes him.

  • Dungeon Family

    You can tell shane battier went to Duke…He Lame as hell

    You can tell He the type of Mulatto That Nobody Liked

    WE(Black)Thought he was corny as hell and The White Folk Thought he was a weirdo

    So he had no choice but to be a Loner

  • Mike from Spain

    lame puns by the artist formerly known as Ron Artest… LOL I like bad jokes

  • Riggs

    lol @ ron ron’s tweets. If only I didnt know that he ran out of the lakers lounge room screaming LINSANITY after the game winner, i would’ve thought he was making fun of him.

  • Yesse

    Lol, why is Ron/ Metta even allowed to have a twitter account.

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com/ O

    Loved Ron Ron’s tweets. He’s said that his favorite team is the Knicks, so i’m sure he’s as excited as every Knick fan living in New York…

    hahaha metta is hilarious

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85Bl3GRdULQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player 1982

    Metta World Peace is my absolute favorite player these days, you know, off the court.

  • David M.

    Jeremy Lin = Willie Beamen (Any Given Sunday) LOL

  • whooo!

    Mayweather needs to see some of these tweets to realize it ain’t what “any black player does all the time.” And these are from other NBA players! Black, white, Australian, Argentinan… It don’t matter, they’re all giving props.

  • T-Money

    dungeon: i think everybody can agree that battier is corny, regardless of race. i always feel like his tweets are directed at media rather than fans. battier needs media to keep up the no-stat-all-star thingy going. he wants to make woj chuckle, not me.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Dungeon, If ya’ll(black peeps) don’t want Battier we’ll(whitey)take him. Great person from all accounts.

  • Dungeon Family

    @LakeShow………..I’ll Package Battier,Herman Cain, and Darius Rucker For Iggy Azalea

  • bike

    That was a pretty weird comment by Shane…maybe he hopes to talk Lin into joining his secret club “The Mensa Hoops Society”.

  • http://slamonline.com 1982

    If LAHuey made t-shirts that said #hashtagareaubstituteforwit I’d buy about 30 of them.

  • Ka

    Lold at Nazrs tweet

  • http://tempdog1 Tempest

    Battier with the fail

  • Justin G.

    Metta’s tweets are kind of funny but man that guy is brain damaged. And SOOOOO tired of the “Nash didn’t deserve his MVP’s” crap. Anyone who actually believes that is a moron, plain and simple

    Hi, I’m ron artest and I am out of my f***ing LINd.
