After a day of wooing from the Chicago Bulls, Carmelo Anthony is now in Texas to meet with the Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks.  The Rockets are up first and like the Bulls they’ve created huge signage of Anthony in the team’s jersey over the Toyota Center and several other places.  The only problem this time is that the No. 7 jersey already belongs to Jeremy Lin.

Things are already rough between Lin and Anthony if you remember the media frenzy while both were in New York.  Anthony was injured and “Linsanity” took over.  When Anthony returned there were numerous questions about whether or not the two could play together.  Following that season the Knicks chose not to match the Rockets offer sheet and Lin headed over to Houston.

Now the Rockets are trying to bring in Anthony and there’s rumblings about trading Jeremy Lin in order to make room for another player.  Lin posted this tweet to this Twitter account.

Lin, a devout Christian, often posts bible quotes but the timing and subject of this one is suspicious.  It seems like he’s feeling betrayed and he confirmed it when someone asked why he felt entitled.

    What else won’t the Rockets do to humiliate Lin? Which begs the question why because after all they were the ones bending over backward to sign Lin in the first place.

    He wasn’t asked why he felt entitled. That tweet is siding with Lin and telling him that he is entitled to feel disrespected.

    Praise God for you, Jeremy. You are the BIGGER MAN in this situation. Continue to trust GOD and HE will make your enemies your footsteps.
