Yep, and it had to happen right after the big brawl. This can't be good for the NBA image of it's players and criminal actions.

you know, pro atheletes have NEVER really had good lives, just good images. Look at Ruth, Mantle, etc. I think all the image talk is simple justification for for people to try and re-invent image into whatever they want it to be. All the attention on the negative side of athlete's lives is a reflection of the shift in media attention. Even the sports gods of the past did crappy things, the media just didn't focus on that stuff. They thought hero stories sold enough papers I guess. Now, we find out about everybody's dirty laundry. And the papers are selling like hotcakes. And maybe that isn't a bad thing - this guy seems like bad, bad news.

Clarification:

Anybody can get arrested at a bar, but if i'm not mistaken, this guy was arrested a while ago when he was with the clippers on three felonies, a woman later recinded accusations, but the situation was a bit shady.

Here's a link:

that's what I meant by bad news.
