It became abundantly clear on media day last week that some current members of the Penn State basketball team were not happy about how things played out with coach Patrick Chambers, who resigned Oct. 21.
The players expressed their disappointment that day, the first time they had spoken publicly since Chambers resigned.
Monday, current player Jamari Wheeler and former star player Lamar Stevens continued to show their support for Chambers on Twitter.
Wheeler started it with this post showing a conversation he was having with Chambers.
I had to FaceTime you so you could celebrate the new locker room with us because without you this wouldn’t have happen and we just want to say thank you for making this happen for us and we appreciate you so much coach and love you🤞🏾🖤@Coach_Chambers pic.twitter.com/aXY1Gk6P6B

Stevens responded to the post with this tweet of his own:
Facts!!!! PSU Basketball wouldn’t be what it is without him. The real 🐐 https://t.co/3mpyBuwjk6

In the video below from last week’s media day, Wheeler talks about how much he misses Chambers and how he’s still confused about what happened. As he’s talking about what happened the day he found out, Wheeler is cut off by a PSU communications staffer.
Myles Dread then said he’s “not at peace” with what happened to Chambers.
