Rockets pitched Melo with Jeremy Lin's number, Lin's not thrilled
Houston shows billboards showing Carmelo Anthony in No. 7 uniform, which belongs to Jeremy Lin.
The Houston Rockets hosted Carmelo Anthony Wednesday morning as part of Melo's tour de free agency. As part of their presentation, they showed billboards with Melo in a Rockets jersey. Specifically, No. 7.
Funny thing about that, though: Jeremy Lin is No. 7.

@EmodMarco im entitled to standup for myself/say i felt disrespected as i did thru tweet but point is love unconditionally/as jesus loved me— Jeremy Lin (@JLin7) July 2, 2014
Thing is, Lin would most likely have to be moved to make room for Melo. But to do this publicly, instead of just fabricating a number, is kind of an insult. Lin has a right to be upset. And if the Rockets don't land Anthony as a free agent, which is not the expectation, the Rockets may likely have to move Lin anyway. Because bringing him back after that is maybe even worse than the disrespect.
This is like if your boss was hosting a potential new employee and showed them where they would work ... which is your office. Not cool, Rockets!
