For tonight’s #SSsports Twitter Chat, we will discuss the following topics:
1. NBA: Crygate. Cluttered minds. Unhappy Bosh. What is going on in Miami? “Chris can always voice his opinion,” LeBron James said. “If Chris wants the ball then he can ask for it and he can get it. If Chris wants the ball and wants to be more aggressive and wants to be more inserted into the offense, all he has to do is ask for it. When he’s productive, we’re a better team.” That doesn’t sound like a cohesive team; in fact, James sounds less than sympathetic to Bosh’s complaints. Is there a division on the team, and can Miami rectify the situation?
2. NCAA FB: The Jim Tressel decision has rocked college football and created a tidal wave of opinions about the state of affairs. ESPN.com’s Mark Schlabach criticized both Ohio St. for not firing Tressel and Tressel for not apologizing or admitting to errors in judgment. Is college football falling apart?
3. NCAA BB: The officiating at the end of the St. John’s vs. Rutgers game was atrocious. John Adams, the head of the NCAA’s officiating, called it “unacceptable.” How did the officials blatantly miss multiple calls in the final seconds? With the Johnnies advancing, who has the best shot to win the Big East Tournament?
