Obama Sends Shot @ Jeremy Lin

It seemed like every Knicks fan was behind Jeremy Lin last season during his rise from anonymity to NBA icon.

But that wasn't the case. There was a large segment of the Knicks faithful who never believed in Lin.

And that group often pointed to one game -- Lin's eight-turnover performance against the Miami Heat, in which he shot 1-for-11 -- to prove its point. That loss to Miami was Lin's worst outing of the season, by far.

President Barack Obama reportedly used Lin's toughest moment as a metaphor for the 2012 race for the Oval Office between Mitt Romney and himself.

“We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin,” Obama said, according to an aide quoted in a story in the New York Times about Obama's competitiveness.

It's a bit surprising because Obama, a Harvard man himself, had been a huge supporter of Lin.

It's also surprising because Lin was an underdog who rose to prominence under difficult circumstances. And Obama seemingly mirrored that path in the political world.

why does Obama comment on sports more than anything else? He is the presient.. not a sportcenter analyst.

It's all he talks about... he's on sportscenter every year filling out a bracket... I think he's gonna lose this year....

Not that I care either way, and I don't necessarily think Obama did a bad job really...


I just think he should be worried about obamacare and the 700 billion dollars he wasted

Knicks fans hated that n*gga. I think they only gave him some rope because they needed something to rally around. But once he was gone, they turned on Lin quick as hell.

Dumbass, so the president isn't allowed to have personal interests outside of his job? Do you go home and think of ways to improve the big mac and whether or not McDonalds is wasting too much money on napkins and ketchup packets? I doubt it, when you are done flippin your burgers you leave that place and do your own thing, but the president cant?

He isn't sending a shot at Lin. The actual part from the New York Times:
No matter what moves Mr. Romney made, the president said, he and his team were going to cut him off and block him at every turn. “We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin,” Mr. Obama said, according to the aide.
It would be just like saying "We're the bad boys and he's Michael Jordan" or any other situation where a team geared up to stop a player on the other side. There are so many examples of this it is silly to think it's a shot at Jeremy Lin. I guess ESPN is trolling for pageviews.
