Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones just can’t seem to stop getting himself into basketball-related trouble. Less than a week after engaging in something of a feud with Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah, it appears that Jones and teammate and fellow quarterback J.T. Barrett are butting heads.
However, it appears that this feud is of the more playful variety.
@CJ12_ 12 don't want to answer my phone calls b/c I asked him how many nba titles the cavs won compared to the Spurs and he hung up on me

To give a little more information, Jones is from Cleveland and is a fan of the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers while the Texan Barrett cheers for the five-time champion San Antonio Spurs. Surely adding fuel to the feud is that the Spurs beat the Cavs in the 2007 NBA Finals.
Like I said before, this feud is probably all in good fun and Jones is probably just being overly superstitious about how far his favorite basketball team will advance in the playoffs. Currently, Cleveland trails the Chicago Bulls two games to one in the Eastern Conference Semifinals and Game 4 is this afternoon.
Of course, Jones should probably get his head together since he and Barrett will be battling for the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback’s job in a three-man race that also includes senior Braxton Miller, who missed last season with an injury. He may have helped lead Ohio State to a national championship as a No. 4 seed after Barrett was injured but as we have all learned over the years, nothing is guaranteed in college athletics.
