The NBA suspended Indiana Pacers shooting guard Brandon Rush five games without pay for violating its anti-drug policy.
Rush failed a marijuana test for the third time. No other drug violation carries a five-game suspension. A fourth positive test would result in a 10-game suspension. Every subsequent violation would be five games longer than the previous one.
"We have been made aware that Brandon Rush has been suspended for violating the NBA’s anti-drug policy,” Larry Bird, Pacers president of basketball operations, said in a written statement. “We will do what we can to provide Brandon help going forward."
Outstanding. Brandon, you're an idiot, grow up. Didn't you learn anything from your brothers?
