The Latest In Linsanity: Spike Lee Thanks Mark Jackson For Jeremy Lin

The Golden State Warriors are catching a lot of grief right now over the fact that they released Jeremy Lin on the first day of training camp this season. As you may have heard, Lin is now tearing the NBA up for the New York Knicks.

Uber-Knicks fan Spike Lee had some fun with that on Saturday, texting Golden State coach Mark Jackson "thanks."

Jackson seems only vaguely-amused by the whole ordeal and wants to make it clear that he wasn't the person who cut Lin loose.

"I had nothing to do with Jeremy Lin. I never saw him do a layup. So for the people … stop asking me. He never practiced for us so leave me out of it...We made a player a free agent and it was nothing about believing or not believing in Jeremy Lin. I’m happy for the guy. When a good guys get a win, it’s great for everybody."

Well, except the Warriors, Mark.
