Former Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph could face similar penalties ex-teammate O.J. Mayo received in terms of being banned from the NBA for violation of the league’s anti-drug policy.
Randolph was arrested Wednesday and charged with “intent to sell” marijuana in Los Angeles. TMZ reported it was two pounds of marijuana.
Zach Randolph is a fucking idiot. You are at the end of your career, just got your jersey retired, signed a new deal with the Kings, and run around with 2 pounds of weed to sell? First of all, that is a TON of weed, second – it never shocks me how stupid professional athletes can be.
Learn from OJ Mayo folks. The NBA doesn’t like weed – we know that:
The league’s collective bargaining agreement with the players’ association says a player will be dismissed and disqualified from the NBA if he is convicted of, or pleads guilty, no contest or nolo contendere to, a crime involving the felony distribution of marijuana.
Mayo was dismissed and disqualified from the NBA in 2016 for violating the terms of the league’s anti-drug program, the first player to receive that punishment in a decade.
I can’t wait to hear all these people come to his defense because it’s “just weed man!”
Yeah, you’re right, it is just weed. But when you make $24 million dollars to play basketball – I think you can stay away from selling 2 pounds of reefer. Not a big sacrifice when you make millions and live in California. Cmon man.
