If there’s anything to be said about timing, Michael Beasley knew what he was doing when he was cited for possession of marijuana after being pulled over for speeding last week in Minnesota. Officers found a little more than a half-ounce of weed in his car — grass he said belonged to a friend — and Beasley was cited and released.
While he is still more than worthy of being sacked by the LBS Nut Bag like his peers before him, Beasley picked a perfect time to get caught. Since the NBA is currently amidst a lockout, there is no substance abuse policy in place as NBA spokesman Tim Frank pointed out to the Sun Sentinel on Thursday. While the NFL has implied it will still punish players following the lockout for breaking league rules during the lockout, it is unclear whether or not they will legally be able to do so. In other words, until the labor agreement is worked out professional athletes have no one to run from but the police.
