    Default Shawne Williams busted at a traffic stop

    Great

    Former University of Memphis basketball players Shawne Williams, 24, and Kareem Cooper, 25, were detained on separate charges today when detectives spotted Williams driving his Dodge Charger down Winchester Road without a seatbelt.

    Officers reported they detected a strong odor of marijuana wafting from Cooper, who was in the passenger seat near Graceland at the time of the routine traffic stop. As Cooper stepped out of the vehicle, he turned over a handgun loaded with 20 rounds to detectives, who quickly spotted a bag of marijuana weighing 17.2 grams concealed in his crotch area, police said.

    Cooper was charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to manufacture/deliver/sell and felony possession of a firearm. No bond has been set.

    Williams, a former Conference-USA tournament MVP and the driver of the vehicle, presented officers his driver's license, suspended Feb. 12 for failure to satisfy a citation. A physical arrest was made to prevent the offense from continuing, the police affidavit said. His bond is set at $250.

    Williams is still awaiting trial Oct. 1 for the January indictment for four counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture/deliver/sell and four counts of conspiracy to manufacture/deliver/sell a controlled substance, a codeine-based syrup. His bond was set at $16,000.

    Cooper was last booked on July 10 for domestic assault with bodily harm, records show. His bond was set at $2,500.

    This is in the Lorenzen Wright thread but probably deserves it's own thread.

    Don't worry it's better to have a thread dedicated to this topic.

    Come on Shawne, you were looking good in Summer League and had a chance to make it back in the NBA. I think he's already used up his three strikes.

    Here's a pretty good article I read recently about Shawne.

    The latter. Magnum was another trade.

    DAL's picks got us AJ Price and Ryan Reid, who we then traded for Magnum Rolle.

    Pretty good save by the "30th best GM" in the league in my opinion

    We traded Shawne Williams for AJ Price and Ryan Reid (who we then traded for Magnum Rolle). And people say Bird doesn't know what he's doing?

    Absolutely Priceless! He claims he wants to get back in the league, yet he comes into camp overweight. He wants to earn a living in the NBA. Yet he blazes up in a Dogde Charger with a suspended license, with one of his hood rat friends. Not exactly low profile, Shawne! Man you're an idiot, what a waste of talent and ability. Dude had the ability but has a 2 cent head.

    You don't think it was this kid do you? He seems to be of a similar maturity level to Shawne.

    We've earned the reputation. Dallas has not. They spat him out of there in less than a year. We kept those types of clowns for years allowing them to fill up rap sheets...and even kept acquiring them.

    While other GM's passed on Lance due to his reputation, the Pacers did not. It will be interesting to see if we are simply a better judge of character now...or just stupid.

    Sad how he's ruined his career from pure stupidity.

    Before drafting Shawne, Bird checked him out by speaking with Calipari to see what kind of kid he was. Calipari convinced Bird that Shawne was no problem which says lots about the coach. Would anyone else want Calipari's opinion?

    Our only problem was getting those aforementioned players when they were 'young and dumb and full of XXXX'. But, they were FUN to watch on the court. The white 'main-stream' media (and our local whiners) were all just TOO eager to break-down the Pacer team because they FEARED our raising status in the NBA and the continuing demise of Boston, LA, and the other MAJOR MARKETS. Unfortunately, our own local media and posters on this board jumped on the mainstream MEDIA bandwagon. This ruined our team for the long term because we were STUCK with a boatload of mediocre players with long contracts.

    While white folks live on their country farms or nice suburbs, most black people are raised on the tough streets of America. We shouldn't attempt to lynch them through and with the the media's help for acting out their lives in the way they were raised. Lance, fortunately, wants to be a great player like LeBron and he wants to leave a LEGACY like other GREAT NBA PLAYERS. Like a young Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson, he'll have his own GROWING PAINS but the HATERS on this board need to be exposed for what they really are.....racists. Let Lance and our other young NBA kids grow up without running them out of town (becuz of your closet racist motives). I'm sure we ALL know relatives who were wild when young and who finally grew up to be good citizens with kids. If not, LB will repeat Donny's mistake of letting the BS media and racists fans under the guise of 'doing the right thing' run these guys outta town by trading for clean white (or uncle Tom) but athletic NBA players with one dimensional games.

    If the NBA was so concerned with players smoking DOPE, they should included DRUG TESTING in the CBA agreement. This will, at least, cleanup the POT ARRESTS by NBA players like Shawn Williams and many many other NBA Players (\like our own David Harrison) with POT ADDICTION like Michael Beasley. No one said being black and young is easy....especially those kids who's ONLY dream is playing the NBA (and staying in College only one year due the mandated requirements setup by the NCAA with David Stern's approval).
