Was arrested and charged with possesion of mary jane during a routine traffic stop.

How dumb can athletes get these days? They have everything they could possible want, though they would argue otherwise, and continue to make poor decisions. It's hard to believe these are the kind of people that America is paying millions of dollars to. They play a game for crying out loud. Let's face it, these guys are recieving recognition for their athletic ability not their ability to change the world. It's sad that we allow these people to get away with most of these charges. Why don't we be a little more careful in who give millions of dollars to, for example someone that can actually be a role model to people.

Also, it will be interesting to see who he blames this on.

I realize most athletes are not like this and some actually use their fame and fortune for good, I'm just trying to make a point.

Well...the guy has done a lot for the Miami community and has never had an issue with drugs before...

The guy in the passenger seat said it was his pot when the officers arrested them to start...

Blame him for super bad judgement in having someone in his car with that crap...in the end, the league will test him religously and assuming he has no further issues, its not a big deal.

Just a bad head line that the Miami Heat doesn't need with the entire country hating them already for putting together such a sick team.
