Last night's Heat/Mavericks game turned into a blowout in the second half. So, with nothing exciting to watch on the court, the TNT commentators turned their attention to Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel sitting courtside, with Steve Kerr wondering aloud how Johnny Football managed to land a front-row seat.
"How does a college kid get courtside seats to a Mavs game?" he asked. "Those are expensive seats. I'm just gonna throw that out there."
But, don't worry Texas A&M fans. Craig Sager got on the case almost immediately and found out how Manziel managed to score the seats.
"We are in a 30-point game," Sager said, "time to clarify what could be a sticky situation. Johnny Manziel's phone is getting inundated by text messages and tweets from friends and people wondering about a comment made by Steve Kerr about how he got these seats. Well, everything is legit. This is a birthday present that he bought for himself back on December 6. He's a huge basketball fan. He loves LeBron James, has never seen him in person. So, he has a birthday present that he purchased the ticket to come to the game, get the best seats he could possibly buy, and he is here to watch LeBron James. He practiced today in College Station getting ready for the Cotton Bowl, two-and-a-half-hour drive. He will be back at practice tomorrow, everything is legit."
So, there you have it. Case closed. Don't call the NCAA!
