Jeremy Lin Unhappy With Melo In His Rockets Jersey?

The Houston Rockets followed in the Chicago Bulls’ footsteps on Wednesday, putting the full-court press on Carmelo Anthony. In the process of recruiting Melo, they also managed to deliver a low blow to current player Jeremy Lin.

Following are some photos of Melo plastered across the Toyota Center in Lin’s No. 7 jersey.

Though No. 7 is the number Anthony wore in New York, it was still a tough pill for Lin to swallow. Feeling the slap in the face, he took to Twitter to express his feelings.

Considering the franchise is whoring out his number to a player who might just push him out the door, it’s hard not to sympathize with Lin on this one.
