You'd risk a multi-million dollar contract just so you can get high? Wow. Smart decision.

Wow, can the league take action against him? Hell, he admitted to violating their contract.

God knows how many NBA players get baked in the off-season. At least they aren't dumb enough to admit it.

Props for saying that. I mean, it could possibly be a stupid move, but it really is SUCH a minor thing it shouldn't affect anything. MJ is the black man's candy.

Even smoking during the off season isn't a very good decision for NBA players. What if they get pulled over and they have some grass in their pocket? I'm sure they can blame it on their entourage, but those types of incidents can build up...

Plus, Josh saying this makes it MUCH more likely for the NBA to start testing during the off season. The GMs don't want their players getting high - people do stupid things when they get high. Plus there's the obvious concern that they'll pack on the pounds - none of this is good from a GMs point of view since they're paying millions of dollars into an investment that's getting fat and high during the off season.

I mean, look at Kemp - he's out of the league because of drugs. Not because he was caught using them, but because he was always out of shape and couldn't get a damn contract because of his known use. He lost out on MILLIONS of dollars because of it.

Pretty old, Datz had a link to a interview for a magazine where he said it and "So what, GM's passed me up for that? Look what I'm doing now, I'm glad they did that because that made me who I am today" Typical PR person ****.

What does that have to do with anything?

I've lived with enough people who smoke once and again and/or smoke constantly to know that most people are more likely to do stupid things when they're high. There's a few who keep their judgement in check but there's a lot of people who can't.

How can you argue that smoking would be bad if you were an NBA player?

People rarely do stupid things when they're high off marijuana. Someone is 10x more likely to do something stupid when they're drunk, but alcohol isn't banned for anyone.

Kemp was a cokehead. I know he's gotten in trouble for weed before, but cocaine was his main problem.
