Combustible Mookie Jones Causes Another Stir on Twitter

Another Syracuse baller falls prey to playing the social media fool.

Daily Caller

Mookie Jones’ twitter account is active – and for all the wrong reasons – yet again.

Although he didn’t play in the win over Providence, Mookie Jones still had plenty to tweet about. If you’ve followed Jones’ tweets and Facebook like we have, you know that he’s bound to say something interesting.

Last season he fired off, “coach don’t give a s*** about me and evreybody no it.” Fast forward to Tuesday which started simply enough (all Tweets sic’d):

“No matter who you are.the right system can turn you from a roll player into a superstar.I’m talking rock bottom.”

Sounds like he could be talking about himself there. Going from a three-point specialist to something more? James Southerland has certainly started to do that this season.

That led to Danny Parkins of The Score 1260 prompting his followers to take a look at Mookie’s latest tweet.

“It says I cant retweet it for some reason but check out @mookie21jones latest on how the right system can turn u from a role player 2 a star”

That didn’t make Mr. Jones very happy:

  1. Mookie’s Tweet #1:
  2. Mookie’s Tweet#2:
  3. Mookie’s Tweet #3:

[email protected] why you telling people what I said”

It’s laughable that Mookie  – with 835 followers at the time – would ask that question. His account is protected, but still allows nearly 1,000 people to see what he says publicly. Obviously those followers can show other people as well. There is no code of silence embedded with Mookie’s tweets. Danny’s response was logical:

[email protected] BC I’m not tellin people anything you didn’t already say yourself man, twitter is public.”

Mookie’s response?

[email protected] well you just got a puclic block.i dont even no you”

It seems as though Mr. Jones does not frequent AM 1260 on his radio dial here in Syracuse.

Later on Mookie spouted off again, but directed it at no one in particular:

“I realize there are jerks that just like f—ing with people for homies.I don’t even play much.why you jocking me.#CanILive”

A fan under the handle @ottotheorange tweeted to Mookie, “If you don’t want people to know what your saying, then don’t post it on Twitter.Danny is just doing his job.” Jones responded “F— you.”

Do we get his frustration? Yes. He’s made his “should I stay or should I go?” mindset public on Facebook several times. He’s obviously not playing significant minutes. But as a high-profile figure, you’ve got to realize the effects of what you say. And that those words are public.

He only has to look across his own locker room to see one player who got rid of his account all together recently after saying some regrettable things.

Jay Wright at Villanova has prohibited his players from using Facebook and Twitter altogether until the end of the season. It’s not because of anything specific the players said, but because their conversations were being taken out of context online.

Joking about sexual assault – not funny.

Saying “F— you” to a fan – not appropriate.

Someone on the team or in a higher position needs to tell Jones people can see what you write. It’s not only a distraction to you and your team, but potentially an embarrassment as well.

A social media ban isn’t necessary if players can handle themselves responsibly in that sphere. So far this season with Mookie Jones, that hasn’t been the case.

  9. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something
    to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let
    you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos

  10. Jewelry can be symbolic of group membership, as in the case of
    the Christian crucifix or Jewish Star of David , or of status, as in the case
    of chains of office , or the Western followw
    of married people sporting a wedding ring.

  11. This is my first time pay a visit at here and i am truly happy
    to read all at one place.

  12. Apart from the wedding ceremonies, any engagement ceremony, your kid’s sweet 16thbirthday, everything can be arranged in the most amazing way that will be memorable for long. This club also provides golfing facilities for its members. Golf is one of the most popular sports amongst people of mature age who like to remain fit. One can feel and experience the best golfing facilities out-doors. Therefore, a complete package along with many more facilities is being provided to its members. Wedding menus can include whatever you’d like to order as well. The wedding menu has its own charm which looks very elegant even when you read it.

  13. As a people, there is nothing even remotely subtle about Indians. They like their food super-spicy, load it with ghee, wear overtly bright clothing, and listen to loud, lively music. They might have small aspirations and even smaller hopes, lead very common lives, live in overcrowded cities and pigeon-hole homes, but they carry their heart on their sleeve and a song in their heart – and very literally so. Though the hallowed hallways of international corporates have unwritten policies of phones being on silent mode (like hospitals and libraries) there is no law that bars you from listening to the music of your choice in public places.And so, if you are in one, your ears will be inundated with music that is melodious, tasteful, the “dhinchak” ones, some of which can be downright tacky. The bourgeois and nouveau-riche crowd might snub this local taste in music and settle for the Michael Jackson and Eminem brand of music. But when no one’s around to judge and begrudge their choice, just once in a while, they will switch to an FM Hindi music channel while driving to work. They will lip-sync the popularly played Bollywood songs that are famous merely by virtue of being sung (not literally), by a particular muscle-flexing hero or a hip- gyrating heroin. Conditioning has a way of creeping up on you when you least expect it.Music is a staple Bollywood songs are the USP of Hindi movies and one that doesn’t boast of any is considered to be arty and retrograde and will be shunned by the “aam junta” or the common man. It is a very common sight to see people with headphones perched on their heads or earphones plugged into their ears. They are either tuned into an FM channel that plays Hindi songs 24/7 or to music that has been downloaded to their smartphones or MP3 players. When someone buys a phone today they check its memory capacity and its music compatibility. There was a time when FM was the undisputed music king, but too much of mindless babble from the hosts and an endless chain of advertisements took the charm out of these Radio channels within no time. The mirchis were stripped of their spice, the reds were stripped of their shades and music-lovers migrated to greener pastures.Music for all
