Now that the Knicks’ season is over, Jeremy Lin finally got a taste of “Linsanity” while drowning his sorrows in Meatpacking District clubs Thursday night.
Lin and his teammates Josh Harrellson, Landry Fields and Jerome Jordan had a wild night out at SL and 1OAK, a day after the Knicks’ season came to a close Wednesday night when the Miami Heat knocked them out of the NBA playoffs.
After cleaning out their lockers at MSG Thursday afternoon, the Knicks were spotted at SL on West 14th Street at about 1 a.m. 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,” said an onlooker. “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, the athletes were then spotted at 1OAK on West 17th Street. Sources there saw Lin, Harrellson and Jordan enter 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 miniscus in his left knee. He didn’t participate in the playoffs because of the injury but is expected to return to the Knicks next season.
Lin told The Post Thursday: “I love the Knicks, but at the same time it’s a business. Personally, I think it’d be great if I could come back, but crazy things happen.” A rep for SL had no comment.Follow @PageSix
