Indiana players need to stay out of Michigan. Its just not a good place for them.

One thing I simply do not understand - I mean not at all, not even a little bit. When someone has been drinking or taking illegal drugs of any kind - and they decide to drive - why, why do the speed. I would think that if you really, really, really don't want to get caught by the cops, you would go the speed limit.

Granted, if you are too impaired you might not make a good decision. But back in my younger days there were times when I had a few drinks and I got behind the wheel (I really don't think I was over the legal limit, but I certainly wasn't interested in finding out) I made sure I drove the speed limit and drove extremely carefully - it wasn't that difficult.

Good point, UB.

I can't believe Rawle would so stuff like that. Well, that probably played a big part on why he's no longer on the roster.

I believe Homer can answer your question:

"Oh, I’m in no condition to drive. Wait a minute...I don’t have to listen to myself...I’m drunk."

The time frame certainly seems to match. Marshall was arrested on July 6th and according to Bird's July 18th statement on "Ask the Pacers", he was released sometime during the following week, July 9-13.

I was wondering why his name never resurfaced on any summer league team, now I know. When you're a fringe NBA talent like he is, you can't really afford to make such a stupid mistake.

Yeah he's probably done for good in the NBA. Europe FTW.

Regardless why do we just seem to attract players that are like this.

I dunno. He might go somewhere else. I kinda liked him when he was here. Just a DUI shouldn't hinder him from playing in the league again.

I don't think we attract them, I think it's a culture thing in pro sports in general. That being that most players have been told they are great for so long that they have a sense of entitlement like that of a royal family. Thus they think the can do and get away with anything. The same culture permeates show business. For example Paris Hilton.

Bird has said he wants to change the culture of the team.

Like UB said, why speed. Why get behind the wheel in the first place. I'm sure being an NBA player he's got somewhat of an entourage. Let them drive him around when he's toasted. Probably got away with it for so long didn't think he would get caught. Put a can of bathroom rose scent in the truck and spray it as your getting pulled over.

Perhaps another reason he was dropped by the Pacers is: he wasn't very good!

We should merge the two threads with the title of this one answering the title of the other one. It might not be fact, but since when has that ever stopped anyone. ;)

he's since started a major fight in a game over in Europe...It's been a while now, but the video is on Youtube I believe, and he beat the living crap out of one of the other team's players. But why was this thread bumped? LOL

If anything with the weed, you'd think it would be for going too SLOW! (like the cheech and chong movies)

That is the same question I have.

Sure, Wells just tweeted that Orien Greene got a two year suspension for tampering urine samples.

But two unrelated events.

ChristianDudley

maybe it was because of the Orien Greene news story today, as he was a Pacers teammate of Rawle Marshall??
