5 year old Naim was devastated when the Knicks decided not to match the Houston Rockets offer to Jeremy Lin. His father shared a video of Naim back in July having a break-down that has over 30k views.

When Jeremy heard about the video, he reached out to the family and scheduled a skype session with the young fan. Cute story!

Here is the original video of Naim’s breakdown.

Jeremy Lin skypes with five-year old Knicks fan who was upset over Houston signing

Jeremy Lincredit: bleacherreport.com Jeremy Lin has gotten his fair share of criticism lately after leaving the New York Knicks for the Houston Rockets. Some, myself included, ripped him for not suiting up in the postseason when he claimed he was at 85% health. Some Knicks fans felt he was just a money chaser.

Carmelo Anthony takes 'cheap shot' to the groin

A meaningless final group game between the U.S. and Argentina Olympic basketball teams turned into a blame game with each of the rivals accusing the other of taking cheap shots at each other with the most visible low-blow being directed at Carmelo Anthony's crotch.

Carmelo Anthony Attempts to Author in Revisionist History, Insists 'Selfish' Tag Originated During Linsanity

First Carmelo Anthony was on the receiving end of a fist to the junk, and now this. But this nut shot, delivered by France’s Nic Batum to Spain’s Juan Carlos Navarro, is a lot more brutal and vicious than the one Anthony took, because Batum’s intentions were as clear and articulate as a fist to the groin can be.
