    Sounds like JJ will be doing some community service before the start of training camp. Hope he likes gardening or trash collection on highways. Always niice to spend some time outdoors in the summer.

    J.J. Redick, a likely first-round pick in this month's NBA draft, was arrested for driving while impaired early Tuesday and has was released on $1,000 bond, a Raleigh-Durham, N.C., television station reported.

    WTVD, citing a police report, said that Redick was arrested at 1:03 a.m. in Durham, N.C., after the former Duke star made an illegal U-turn to avoid a police checkpoint.

    The television station reported that Redick is scheduled to appear in a Durham court on July 17.

    The NBA draft is scheduled June 28 in New York City. How an arrest will affect Redick's draft status is unclear, though it may not hurt it, according to ESPN.com's Andy Katz.

    "I think that these things hurt anybody's draft status," an Eastern Conference GM, who wanted to remain anonymous, told Katz. "They do in my eyes. I take these things seriously. That's too bad."

    Redick had previously pulled out of scheduled workouts with Orlando and Boston this week. Previously, he had worked out for Golden State, Utah, Houston and Seattle.

    Among the teams reportedly interested in Redick is Houston, which has the No. 8 pick.

    Redick, who won the 2006 Wooden Award as the nation's top college player, shot 47 percent from the field, 42 percent from 3-point range and 85 percent from the free throw line in leading Duke to a 32-4 record. He finished his career with 2,769 points and the record 457 3-pointers.

    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    I think this moves him to the top of Portland's wish list.

    You know what really pisses me off. This is not going to get nearly the play Ben's motorcycle accident is. When you don't wear a helmet, you're only endangering your life; when you drive drunk, you're endangering the lives of others, too.

    So let's assume he fights this. The first prong will be was the U turn really illegal. ASSUMING that is the stated reason for the initial stop (as the report makes it sound) then if that U turn isn't illegal the DUI never comes into play.

    I thought checkpoints were considered illegal to begin with.

    My brother had a DUI charge thrown out because he did the exact same thing, and a week later they were deemed unconstitutional.

    I always thought it was at a national level, but maybe it was just at the state level.

    The really sad part is that Reddick isn't the only who does this. He just got caught. What really sucks is that there is probably atleast one player on every team who does this.

    Come on Reddick, if you wanna drink that's fine, there is nothing wrong with that. But you probably just lost a lot of money because you wanted to drink and then drive.

    Its not just ballplayers.

    There are lots of people that do it.

    Its a mistake, and hopefully he can learn from it and not do it again.

    I think that SELECTIVE stopping at checkpoints was ruled illegal. Used to be at checkpoints they would waive you past if "you looked OK". Of course the allegation was that if you had the wrong skin color or a "too nice" car, you were singled out and stopped.

    I think that it was determined that checkpoints are legal if you stop and scrutinize every single car going past. There may be also requirements that you have checkpoints at a variety of locations, and not just (for example) in a certain ethnic neighborhood, and records must be kept to demonstrate that DWI arrests are spread out among all ethinic backgrounds.

    JJ Reddick did not win the Superbowl. News is only as big as the people in the news.

    unsubstantiated rumor here, but...

    I've read on other forums that Redick is a known frat party boy and allegedly he has admitted past binge drinking in high school and his freshman and sophmore years. Apparently he also got busted for something his freshman year but charges were dropped.

    He was in a dorm room where they were smokin pot, and they got busted. All of them there said he was only in there to check his email, and didn't participate.

    I've heard just the exact opposite, that because of that incident he was very strict and had a rule of only going to one party a year. That story makes sense to me a little more, especially when you factor in his strict workout/eating regimen to lose all that weight.

    Thuging up is what some of you call it right? Or is thugging it up only when you yell at a ref.

    Are you seriously trying to compare throwing (whatever Haslem threw at the ref) to driving drunk.

    The only comparison is that they are both stupid.

    And I really hope that comment was a sarcastic one, but in case you were serious. Drunk driving is many things, including illegal, but no it is not "thugish"

    I know George Bush should of done something about this. This is all George Bush's fault! Impeach Bush!!!! *Sarcasm*
