Spike Lee Calls Out Floyd Mayweather Over Jeremy Lin Treatment

It didn’t take long for Floyd Mayweather’s comments about Jeremy Lin to fly back in his face.  Lin nailed the game winning three Tuesday night against Toronto and Spike Lee took to Twitter to back up Lin.  Lee’s tweet reads as follows.

@SpikeLee Floyd Mayweather I Hope You Watched Jeremy Hit The Gamewinning 3 Pointer With .005 Seconds Left.Our Guy Can BALL PLAIN AND SIMPLE.RECOGNIZE

Powerful words from Spike Lee.  But seriously, Lin can flat out play.  His race has nothing to do with it.  It wouldn’t matter if he was green, he would still be getting all this attention.  It’s a fantastic sports story and one that everyone is following.

Thanks to Off the Bench for the story.
