Williams added, “I don’t really watch SportsCenter, I don’t really watch too many games, but I do see Twitter. And every three lines was, ‘Jeremy Lin destroys Deron Williams’ in the first game. “And like I said, I had it circled.”
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: In the words of James Brown, it was The Big Payback.
Deron Williams wasn’t happy Jeremy Lin pulled a little ‘Lin-sanity’ magic and led the New York Knicks to victory over the All-Star’s New Jersey Nets.
Williams was especially upset Lin’s play went viral, so he got revenge dropping 38 points on the NBA’s newest sensation last night.
It’s great Williams was motivated to play his best and have success. However, the source of his motivation, twitter, is interesting.
Williams didn’t like getting called out by Lin’s followers on the social media platform, and he was especially upset after reading some re-tweets.
So he got his revenge. And chances are, Williams will circle every meeting with Lin in the future.
