At a time when Jeremy Lin should be focusing on Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder, a glimpse at his Twitter page shows that Lin, like millions of people around the world right now, is spending plenty of time screaming at his iPhone.
"Ive been stuck on level 147 of candy crush for an entire week," Lin tweeted this weekend. "I even had a dream about disco ball and candy wrappers...addicted"
Ive been stuck on level 147 of candy crush for an entire week. I even had a dream about disco balls and candy wrappers... addicted Jeremy Lin (@JLin7) April 19, 2013
Lin is referring to Candy Crash, the insanely popular handheld app.
The internet is filled with pages, stories and communities discussing people's addictions to Candy Crush.
An article appeared on BuzzFeed this week that explained 12 stages of Candy Crush addiction, which included anticipation, despair, shame, anger and paranoia.
At least Lin has a playoff basketball game on Sunday to take his mind off Candy Crush for a few hours.
But he might want to put down his phone a little bit before taking the court. A quick look at the Candy Crush Wikipedia page shows that "psychologists point out that possible mental impacts include depression, hot temper and anxiety if they spend a long time playing or have been stuck on a level too long."
Of course, if you are friends with Lin on Facebook, you could send him some lives to help him get past level 147.

It’s that time of the year again. You know, the one where we all think Russell Westbrook is messing with us with the stuff he wears to his playoff postgame press conference but he’s really just being Russell Westbrook.
The Oklahoma City Thunder guard kicked things off in a big way after a 120-91 win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night. As you can see from the photo that...
It is an exciting showcase of James Harden against his former team. Obviously, Harden will have to do his best of carrying the team as he is their only chance of making it close. James Harden lit up the Thunder for 47 points in the middle of the season. But this proven OKC team might be too much to handle.
What OKC needs to do to win: Let everyone except James Harden beat...
Even though Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook was called for the charge on this play, I think he made enough of a mark. Westbrook put Patrick Beverley of the Houston Rockets on skates after his double-crossover move. Russell gunna Russell.
Russell Westbrook had a stellar night for the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday night when they opened their best of seven series with a familiar foe, James Harden and the Houston Rockets. The young guard was just two boards short of a triple-double (19 points, 10 assists, 8 rebounds).
If his talent was not already evidence enough that he was (is) capable of games like this, well-...
I love them shoes T…
Oklahoma City Thunder All-star Russell Westbrook carried his questionable fashion sense right into the playoffs. After the Thunder defeated the Rockets 120-91, Russ showed up post game wearing this ensemble. If the Thunder don’t win it all this year, Westbrook’s fashion will be squarely blamed.-TO

In case you missed it last night, the Oklahoma City Thunder cruised to an easy game one win against the Houston Rockets as guard Russell Westbrook scored 19 points in the 120-91 victory.
In the third quarter of play, Westbrook was matched up with Houston back-up guard Patrick Beverly and it appears from the below video, Russel’s speed caused Beverly’s ankles to wobble:
Game 1 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and The Houston Rockets was a massacre. The Rockets got punched in the mouth, plain and simple. Of course there was a Russell Westbrook highlight. Towards the end of the third quarter, Russ put Rockets Patrick Beverly on skates.
Russell was charged with an offensive foul. Didn’t really matter, the Thunder were up by 20 at that point...
The Thunder won Game 1 of their opening playoff series versus the Rockets 120-91 and to add insult to injury, Russell Westbrook decided to make Patrick Beverly look absolutely silly.
In the third quarter, Beverly caught himself one-on-one with Westbrook and the moment you saw Russell start to dance with the ball, you knew something awful for Patrick was going to happen and something...

This silliness has to end soon, right?
