Jeremy Lin changes hairstyles about as often as he switches teams. And since the former New York Knick and Charlotte Hornet signed a contract with the Brooklyn Nets this offseason it was about that time for a new haircut. After trying out a bowl cut, The Goku and a man bun, Lin decided to go with cornrows. 

Lin said he's "been wanting to do this, and a bunch of different hairstyles, for a long time." And while he didn't know any braiders in the Bay, where he lives in the offseason, he figured there had to be some in Brooklyn.

We got the details on @JLin7's #brooklynbraided hair inspiration today. #Nets

Twitter users were obviously not going to let Lin get away with another dramatic haircut and immediately started posting their hilarious reactions to the new look. 

As a Nets fan, my favorites were the ones comparing Lin to A.I. and people taking this as proof Brooklyn is going to win the East. Check out the reactions below.
