Lin drowns sorrows at NYC clubs
Now that the Knicks’ season is over, Jeremy Lin finally got a taste of "Linsanity."
Lin and teammates Josh Harrellson, Landry Fields and Jerome Jordan had a wild night out at Meatpacking District clubs SL and 1OAK, drowning their sorrows a day after the Miami Heat knocked them out of the NBA playoffs.
After cleaning out their lockers at Madison Square Garden on Thursday afternoon, the players were spotted at SL on West 14th Street at about 1 a.m. Friday.
A source said Lin and the gang had several bottles of vodka and champagne sent to their table. And all, including the previously alcohol-shy Lin, knocked back the booze while mingling with models.
"They were really drowning their sorrows," an onlooker said. "Jeremy was drinking and was acting tipsy … like a college frat kid."
Onlookers also said that girls were flocking to their table, and Lin was seen talking to a group dressed in tight-fitting dresses. Former Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks later arrived to chat with the hoopsters, who partied past 3 a.m.
At around 3:30 a.m., the athletes were then spotted at 1OAK on West 17th Street. Sources there saw Lin, Harrellson and Jordan entered the nightclub with about 10 friends, but Fields was not with them.
Onlookers said the crew ordered several bottles of Patron Magnum tequila and grooved along to DJ Jus-Ske’s set until 4 a.m.
Aside from nursing a possible hangover, Lin’s off-season includes healing from a torn meniscus in his left knee. He didn’t participate in the playoffs because of the injury but was expected to return to the Knicks next season.
