Reporter says he smelled marijuana in Cavs locker room after Game 2


The Cleveland Cavaliers needed to find a way to relax after falling into an 0-2 hole with another blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors Sunday night. Did they use a little greenery to take the edge off?

Following Game 2, ESPN reporter Mike Wise tweeted that he smelled a “strong reefer aroma” coming from the visitors’ locker room at Oracle Arena.

Of course, NBA players are not permitted to use marijuana — even if California is one of eight states that has legalized recreational marijuana use. Despite his joke about “pain control,” Wise later added that he had no idea if the weed smell meant any of the players were smoking.

Tensions were obviously running high on the Cleveland side after Sunday’s game. We saw that when LeBron James shut down a reporter’s poor question (video here) and then didn’t show up to the podium. Does that mean players were puffing the magic dragon right in the locker room? We tend to doubt it.
