Mavericks PA announcer Sean Heath suspended for tweets criticizing NBA, officials

Sean HeathDallas Mavericks PA announcer Sean Heath was suspended two games by the NBA for sending multiple tweets criticizing the league and its officials, according to multiple reports.

ESPN Dallas says Heath’s suspension will begin Saturday night and continue either during the playoffs or carry over to the beginning of next season.

Heath was angry after the Mavs lost an overtime game to the Golden State Warriors on April 1 122-120. He was upset that no goaltend was called on a Monta Ellis shot that was blocked by Jermaine O’Neal:

Heath then tweeted directly at the NBA over Twitter and complained about referee Danny Crawford blowing a call.

Heath probably sealed his fate with this tweet, which talked about the NBA having a reputation for being “rigged”:

The NBA actually apologized a day after the game and admitted goaltending should have been called, but it was too little too late. Still, Heath probably should have just left things where they stood after the first three tweets. It was the “rigged” comment that probably triggered the suspension.

Oh well. Looks like he’s just a big Mavs fan like many other people in the area.
