During the second quarter of the Heat-Grizzlies game, a tweet was published from Chris Bosh’s account promoting a charity event with Pat Riley Sunday night in Miami. Unfortunately, players are prohibited from Tweeting during a game. Brian Windhorst noted the tweet and retweeted it, and subsequently Bosh deleted it.
The odds of it actually being Bosh are pretty slim. It was almost definitely an assistant or one of his managers, who just didn’t think about there being a game. Which makes you wonder what exactly these guys are doing that they can’t remember one simple rule: don’t tweet during games.
Bosh will likely find himself in a fine situation unless he takes the usual “I was hacked!” business. Which would seem pretty ridiculous to claim a hacker wanted to promote his charity event. But it’s also difficult to disprove. Hey, whatever you’ve got to do to avoid the fine, I guess.
