    Default Harrison suspended for 5 games-drugs

    Maybe this is the reason he acts like he is mental.

    5 games means it isn't his first offense, correct?
    "They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    Maybe all this is really a good omen for the "Jail-Pacers".

    Five years ago, Portland Jailblazers (really bad team) -- >> now Cleanblazers (really good team).

    Now, Indiana Jailpacers (semi-bad team) -->> five years from now, CleanPacers (really good team)??

    someone else mentioned that the 1st offense is just a warning, the 2nd offense is a fine and the 3rd offense is a 5 game suspension.

    If whatever drug he took falls into the category that most of us think of when we hear "drugs" (grass, coke, etc.), then I agree. However, if it simply a "dietary suppliment" sort of drug then a suspension is OK - With the understanding that if it happens again, he is gone. I know hoping it is not of the first category may be wishful thinking, but the story does not tell us WHAT he took.

    I thought the NBA had a "3 strikes and your out" rule. Am I wrong about that?

    Reserve center David Harrison has been suspended five games by the NBA for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program, the league announced today.

    "We are very disappointed with the news that David Harrison has been suspended," Larry Bird, Pacers President of Basketball Operations, said in a statement released by the team. "This is a private matter and we will do what we can to provide David any help going forward."


    Harrison’s suspension will begin with Saturday night’s game when the Pacers visit the Sacramento Kings. Under the rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, only the NBA can discipline a player for violations of the anti-drug program.


    The fourth-year center from Colorado is averaging 12.8 minutes, 4.4 points and 2.2 rebounds in 27 games this season. He will be eligible to return when the Pacers play in Chicago on Jan. 23.

    Harrison is an idiot, I'm sorry, he's in his final contract year, and he does this LOL. He's done.

    1) This is no major surprise.
    2) Harrison's NBA career is likely over at the end of this season.

    All I can say is THANK GOD this came out before we re-upped him next season.

    This is a serious blow to our frontline. David Harrison should have been suspended for being a lazy, crappy, unprepared, injury prone, hot-tempered, booksmart not hoops smart boob long before the NBA's war on drugs ever got ahold of him.

    We're going small ball now. So it's not like he's going to play anyways. Maybe we can trade him to the Blazers for Travis Outlaw

    1) sure it is, shouldn't that pot mellow him out...or has it been!!! Dear god what will he turn into if he goes clean...(prays it was coke just as explanation for intense behavior pattern)

    2) no it isn't. He's big, it's the NBA, someone can use a guy at his age and size. Not many bigs of even modest talent fail out right away.


    But he did just ruin his contract year with the Pacers. Finally our luck is turning. A few years ago he would have kept up his improved play, got a 3 year deal done, and THEN this would have shown up. This time we found out in time (or they already knew and were just riding it out, far more likely).

    I was kinda joking by the way since Harrison plays about as much as I exercise. Totally inconsequential player. The downside is if they planned on using him in some sort of trade later in the season. I don't see many teams accepting him even as trade filler for the remainder of the season.

    Yeah, no value to Indy for trades, but I do think he ends up in a camp and signed cheap by someone next year. Just not the Pacers.

    Not suprised as this is not the first time I have heard that David fancies himself some extracurricular activities of this nature. A buddy of mine who frequents between Bloomington and Indy with the hip-hop scene has told me he has gotten down with DH before. I think it's pretty common knowledge a lot of NBA players do this stuff, just not all get caught. Regardless...good riddance.
