Heat Draft Pick Maybe Cheated on the SATs, but Who Cares?

The Miami Heat made minimal moves in the NBA draft, but did pick up a few players, including Robert Dozier out of the University of Memphis. 

Earlier this month, ESPN reported that the organization that administers the SATs invalidated his score. Dozier score of 1260 didn't match his grades or his PSAT score. When he took the test again his score dropped by 540 points (720, ouch). Dozier's Memphis teammate, and #1 draft pick, Derrick Rose is also caught up in a similar scandal. 

But anyone who has ever read Shaq's twitter knows that good basketball player's don't need to  have a great hold on boring, academic things like the proper usage of the English language.
