NBA Players tweet about Jeremy Lin’s game winning Shot

Published on February 15, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

The legend of Jeremy Lin is just beginning and it looks to be just growing and growing. He is just not catching the fans by storm but he also the only thing NBA players are talking about. Last night as Lin hit the game winning shot the Lakers locker room was said to be nuts.

As I mentioned above Lin hit a game winning three pointer last night to give the New York Knicks the win over the Raptors. The win gives the Knicks their sixth straight win to get them to 14-15 on the season. You have to wonder what the Knicks record would be if Lin started the season with the Knicks?

Lin now has 137 points in his first five career starts. That is the most of player in the NBA since 1976-77 the NBA-ABA merger. Shaquille O’Neal had 129 points in his first five career starts. Thanks to the Elias Sports Bureau for that stat.

Below is what current and former NBA players Tweeted after Lin’s big shot.
