Texas A & M football star and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was sitting court side for the Miami Heat’s win over the Dallas Mavericks last night in Dallas.  Announcer Steve Kerr took advantage of the situation and decided to call him out and ask how he got down there. "How does a college kid get court side seats to a Mavericks game?  Those are expensive seats."  The other announcers jumped in and told him not to jump to conclusions, and give Maziel the benefit of the doubt. Video below Clearly a lot of scandals have been going down in college sports lately in regards to players accepting illegal benefits via boosters, and other people around the programs. According to Maziel's tweet he was just treating himself to a nice birthday present.  Manziel turned 20 just a couple weeks ago. Kerr's hating on live television must have sparked a lot of haters coming at Maziel on twitter for him to issue a tweet directly after the game.  Clearly the man is a celebrity these days, so people thinking that he might act like a celebrity (and a college kid for that matter) and take some free tickets isn't exactly crazy.  He just needs to watch out for himself and be smart, or he might lose out on a really really hot girlfriend, haha. Oh yea, and Manziel got to snap a few pics with the team after the game. Lucky dude. Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
