So Kenyon Martin bashed Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin, because of this hairdo. Lin has been sporting a mohawk with dreads and for some reason. Kenyon Martin felt compelled to go on his Instagram page and Slam Lin because of this.He started by posting a picture of Lin with his new hairdo.Then stated the following in a video.
“I’m confused, puzzled, shock disappointed in his teammates and the Nets as an organization for allowing this foolishness. Do I need to remind this damn boy his last name is Lin”?. Like come on, Let’s stop it with these people. There is no way he would’ve made it on one of our teams with this bullshit on his head. Come on man, somebody needs to tell him you wanna be black, but your last name is Lin”.
After watching the video the first question that came to mind was” why the hell do Kenyon Martin care how Jeremy Lin wears his hair?”. As a former Net player if Kenyon Martin was critical about Lin’s game. Then cool. As long as that came with validity.
However who made him the king of telling people how to wear their hair?. Statements like this make’s Martin look like a disgruntled has been basketball player.
He was the main one who didn’t like George Karl taking shots at him (out the blue). Then turns around and do the same to someone else.Never the less. Lin kept it professional and responded to Martin in the following matter.
“Hey man, it’s all good you don’t have to like my hair, and definitely entitled to your opinion. At the end of the day, I appreciate that I have dreads and you have Chinese tattoos. Because I think it’s a sign of respect.
