Houston Rockets Pitch to Melo using Jeremy Lin’s Number

Does that number look familiar?

Today the Houston Rockets met with Carmelo Anthony and tried to convince him that Houston is the place for him.  They put billboards up with Melo in a Rockets uniform, with his number, number 7.  That also happens to be the same number Jeremy Lin wears.  And guess what?  He’s still on the Rockets.  While it’s pretty much public knowledge that Jeremy Lin would get traded if Melo signs with the Rockets, it’s pretty disrespectful to use his number while he’s still on the team.  It seems like Carmelo follows Jeremy Lin everywhere he goes and kicks him out.  It happened when Lin was on the Knicks, and now it’s happening with the Rockets.  All I know is that I respect Lin for taking the high road, quoting Luke 6:29 on Twitter instead of lashing out.  It must be awkward.
