In Act III, scene II of Hamlet, the prince's mother dryly utters one of the most famous lines penned by Shakespeare, "Methinks the lady doth protesteth too much." The phrase has come to mean that one can insist so strongly that something isn't true that people begin to suspect that it is.
We were reminded of Hamlet Friday morning when Spike Lee tweeted, "WAKE UP. WAKE UP. Good Morning. Anybody who thinks I'm switching to NETS when they move to Brooklyn is ON CRACK,METH and MALT LIQUOR.
#1KNICKS." Did Mikhail Prokhorov call with a ticket offer? Did Jay-Z remind him that he grew up in Brooklyn? Did he have a bad dream about Deron Williams tossing an alley-oop to Dwight Howard? Or did a Nets fan ask him a simple question?
