Lil Wayne has a nickname for Jeremy Lin: I call him Lin Laden
If you can sit through more than eight minutes of Lil Wayne talking sports, feel free to watch the entire video below. If you simply want to hear Lil Wayne’s thoughts on the phenomenon that is Jeremy Lin, cut to around the 3:00 mark. Beware of some NSFW language at the end of the video:
There you have it — as if Lin didn’t have enough nicknames. Apparently Weezy is a Lakers fan, so he isn’t down with the Linsanity. That’s why he came up with the nickname “Lin Laden” for Jeremy Lin. I’m not sure Lin would agree with being compared to a terrorist, but perhaps the Knicks wouldn’t have beaten the Lakers if Kobe Bryant wasn’t so offended by the questions he had to answer about Lin before the game.
It may be offensive, but I guess Lin Laden is another compliment in a way. The nickname was earned by taking down Kobe, so that has to say something, right?
