Johnny Manziel sits courtside for Heat-Mavs game; TNT discusses NCAA violations

Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was seen sitting courtside for the Dallas Mavericks-Miami Heat game on Thursday night.  This prompted TNT commentators Steve Kerr, Marv Albert and Mike Fratello to discuss whether or not it was an NCAA violation for him to be sitting there; as in whether or not the tickets were improper benefits given to him by someone else.  Manziel must have heard about this because he took to Twitter to respond.

No need to worry Aggies fans, your quarterback will be just fine.  Some others also said that Manziel’s family was doing just fine financially, and his parents probably got him the tickets.

How expensive were the seats exactly?

It’s really too bad that we have gotten to the point where any time we see a collegiate athlete with something nice that we assume they must be breaking an NCAA rule.  I always say, innocent until proven guilty, and Manziel hasn’t given anyone a reason to doubt him.

Johnny Football is a big fan of LeBron James:

    I’m a Bama fan and I think these commentators’ comments are utterly ridiculous. They should keep their mouths shut if they don’t know anything about how he came about the seat.

    He’s a racist. That’s all that matters. Scum of the Earth.

    Obviously the commentators just assume every college athlete is poor.

    Steve Kerr is a buffoon. He simply feels negleted. Another white boy is getting attention over him at a bball game.
    Always gotta be a hater making a fool of himself.

    Kerr is that kid when you were little tha t would go and tell on you if he didn’t get his way. Snitches get stitches Kerr, keep your hating mouth closed. Good for Marv to call him out for being a hater, funny stuff.
