Default Rookies caught with weed

Quote:
March Madness heroes Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur were thrown out of the NBA's rookie transition program on Wednesday morning after being caught in their hotel room with marijuana and women, according to several sources.

"They were sent home for violating program rules," NBA spokesman Brian McIntyre said.

Sources said Chalmers and Arthur, who starred on the Kansas Jayhawks' 2008 NCAA championship team, were also fined $20,000 apiece and could start the regular season on the suspended list. But McIntyre would not confirm that.

"We're still looking into it," McIntyre said. "Once we have all the details, appropriate sanctions will be taken."

The players were caught by hotel security at the Doral Arrowwood resort in Rye Brook, N.Y., where 69 of the league's rookies arrived last night for the four-day seminar in which coaches, referees and former players speak about adapting to the league. Having visitors at the rookie transition program is not permitted.

Chalmers, who sank the game-tying, buzzer-beating 3-pointer that forced overtime in Kansas' 75-68 championship victory over Memphis, was drafted 34th by Minnesota. He was quickly traded to Miami, where he is expected to vie for the starting point guard position after playing well during summer league. Chalmers played three seasons for the Jayhawks.

Arthur, also an early-entry candidate who played two years at Kansas, was a sympathetic figure on draft night. Roundly believed to have lottery-type talent, Arthur sank to the 27th spot after erroneous rumors of a health problem circulated throughout the league.

Then, after being selected by New Orleans, the 6-foot-9 forward was traded to Portland, then Houston, before finally settling in Memphis.

Per league policy, Chalmers and Arthur will have to attend the program again next year.

I agree, but it's still an illegal substance, you would think these kids would have the sense, or people around them with enough sense to lay off doing illegal things when your reputation and future is on the line. Smoke weed once you sign a longterm lucrative deal.

Actually can remember when they did the high school orientation thing and the guidance councellor was talking he actually told all us kids that there was nothing wrong with smoking up, just to make sure you do you homework first and try not to do it before school.

So now Beasley was involved. This guy isn't doing much to dispell the myth that he's bad news.

I don't understand why they can't just be smart about it.

Use your head, yes its not a big deal, but you know what the media is going to do and how it is going to be portrayed.

Smoke your pot, but use your friggen head.
