Rick Stansbury dismissed D.J. Gardner from the Mississippi State basketball team on Friday. The development came a day after Stansbury announced the heralded freshman would redshirt, and less than 15 hours after Gardner publicly expressed his displeasure with the coaching staff via Twitter.

"These b***es tried to f**k me over," Gardner Tweeted late Thursday, according to a screen shot grabbed by the Clarion-Ledger's Brandon Marcello. "That’s y I red shirted .. But I wish my homies a great as* season.. I don’t even know y I’m still here"

Gardner is an in-state product who averaged 32 points and 10 rebounds as a high school senior.

He chose Mississippi State over Memphis.

He'd fit in PERFECTLY at Memphis....that's where ALL the punk azz mother f******s go to play ball.

With fans like Jamammy, BSquared and Tnzazz supporting the program, he'd be right at home!!

The entitlement by these kids today....It never ceases to amaze me.  Oh well, now he can go to Memphis and continue what should be a bright future.  NOT!

Looks like the kid was right.  He was recruited under false pretenses, lied to, and ultimately kicked to the curb when he called his handlers on their dishonesty.

Note to all future basketball recruits - avoid Mississippi at all costs like football players should avoid Iowa.  It just ain't get for ya...

Yeah, son!  They "tried" to "F" you over.  But guess what they didn't!  You will no longer be red shirted this year.  Happy?  Hope so.  It sucks that you probably moved all your stuff intot he dorms already.  Now you gotta pack everything up and move back home.  Poor baby.  :(

Please be careful with what appears to me to be a roundabout apology for this kid"s unacceptable behavior.  It doesn't matter what the staff or recruiter promised him...you still have to put out max effort in practice, and I don't think a coaching staff that enjoys winning ballgames would reshirt a kid they thought gives them a better chance to win. This smacks of another entitled high schooler, who has had his rear end smooched all his life, and has excelled through minimal sweat and devotion, thinking he could waltz in to a D1 program and own it.  Good luck finding a place that accepts malcontents, and entitled brats.  Oh wait, there are hundreds of them, so I highly doubt any lesson will be learned.  Finally, Twitter is for self-absorbed jackasses who feel the need to tell people all the details of their lives, based on the presumption that WE CARE...and we don't. Sorry.

Further proof that basketball players are the scum scraped from the bottom of society.

Sounds like a complete and utter idiot!  Good riddance to you.  Seriously, if these idiot kids don't realize there will be repurcussions to their stupid Tweets (and if you have a Twitter account you are by definition an idiot) then they don't deserve to play anywhere.

I'm sure he chose Miss. St. over Memphis b/c Nevin Shapiro paid him.
