    Never would have thought that LA nightlife would’ve gotten to a Ricky Buckets getting little to no burn. Hey, a man’s gotta unwind after riding the pine and putting up with Dunleavy’s coaching.

    hahahah i swear to God i knew he was goin get caught sooner or later, by the way he was smokin weed, cuz sum guy i kno knew joel anthony (ricky was wit miami last season) and joel told him that nba players get tested 3 times a year, and since ricky had been tested 3 times already, the rest of the year he was high 24/7, i mean that literally; like joel told him that ricky would wake up and go to sleep high, he’d even go to the rest of the practices high and no one could do anythin to stop him, haha dam that mus b funny; him in those 3 hour pat riley practices high as hell…. altho i dun kno if he played games high, i wouldnt b surprised if he did tho…

    Considering where his field goal percentage is now, smoking a little weed would probably help him.

    I recall that back in the Beijing Olympics everybody was all over me because I said that NBA players do drugs…

    It’s a big step from “Ricky Davis” to “NBA players.” That said, a lot of guys probably do smoke weed. So what?

  • Joey

    your right russ, but i’m gonna play devil’s advocate for a minute.
    Smoking weed is still against the law if its for recreation. fair or not, its the law and he’s punished. meh

    this suspension doesnt mean anything because he’s been out for a month plus anyways

    European players don’t do drugs!!! That’s why Euro ball will always be better than the United States!

    This isn’t what I meant when I said Ricky needs to work on that J of his!

    Didn’t Scoop call Ricky Davis the new JR Rider a few years back? Looks like his prediction might come true, but probably not in the way he envisioned.

  • pablo (from argentina)

    Russ what you said recalled me of Maquiavelo. Geez, Ricky Davis? What about D-Miles? Rodman? J-Howard? the NBA is the only basketball league in the world where player smoke weed and everybody says: “so what”?

    what is weeds? mary juana is a girl from cuba, ganga is a bird from australia. i and i smoke herb. it is totally against my religion to not smoke herb.

    WARNING! cigarette smoking is dangerous, and hazardous to your health. does that mean anything to you? then legalize herb.

  • Wiz

    well le jukia d’arcel how bout u start keeping your players out of the united states then.

  • ace

    not the only league at all the american players do it in europe too..

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    yes, it is only american athletes who smoke trees, no other athlete in the world smokes trees. many of you need to remove your head from your tukus and look around you.

  • ClydeSays

    You know, teams should get smart about players like Ricky “Smokey” Davis. Sign him and guys like Mark Blount, Marcus Banks, etc to a 5 year minimum package deal. You need to be in Lottery? THESE are the guys that can get you there.

    They will not play D, won’t give you effort every night and will ALWAYS look for ‘their’ shots. Plug them into your team and they can almost guarantee a Lottery pick. Ask the Celtics, TWolves and Heat. Those 3 players were key members of losing campaigns. Coincidence? Not likely.

  • Mendel

    Well they should have tested him after he shot at his own basket to get the rebound so he could get a tripple double when he was playing in minnesota. Smokin on hay-aayyy in LA.

    Maybe Tarzan’s always high and that’s why he seems to know nothing about basketball?

  • Clutchski

    Despite the fact that many people smoke weed…and im sure NBA players who have so much money can obviously afford BOMB weed, the bottom line is that it’s supossed to be a family game. You can’t have kids seeing a NBA player “mentor” doing drugs that’s not right. It’s telling them it’s okay (which in my Canadian opinion it’s beyond okay) but still.

  • rikson

    Get your pants back on – its just weed – *geeez*

  • Rob

    Actually being high and smoking is perfectly legal if your 18. Being caught in the act and possesing it is illegal smart guy joey. Poor Ricky.
