Marko Jaric Is in Big Trouble

by Marcel Mutoni

Update: NBCphiladelphia.com reports that no charges will be filed against Marko Jaric for an assault that allegedly took place three days before his wedding last month.

You know, for a guy who plays for a gawd-awful team, and isn’t exactly a superstar himself, Marko Jaric has been in the news quite a bit this year.

This time, however, it’s got nothing to do with his lovely wife, Adriana Lima.

According to SI.com, Jaric is the mysterious Grizzly under investigation for sexual assault:

A Philadelphia woman has accused Memphis Grizzlies guard Marko Jaric of sexual assault, multiple sources familiar with the investigation told SI.com. The incident allegedly occurred in March when the Grizzlies were in Philadelphia to play the 76ers.

This will make dinner conversation at the Jaric-Lima household more than a tad awkward.

    Wow, what an idiot. I still cannot understand how Lima wants anything to do with Jaric. He’s a scrub, who plays in scrub cities (Minneapolis, Memphis, etc…) and he’s got those beady little eyes that always look crossed, they look way too close together or something.

  • http://nbacheapseats.blogspot.com Chendaddy

    Whaaaat? On yesterday’s post, I was going to write that the ONE person it could not possibly be is Marko Jaric, since he would never do something so risky to jeopardize going home and getting to tap Adriana Lima. You absolutely sure it’s not “D”arko?

  • Scott

    There’s no way those allegations are true, his wife is waaay to hot for him to cheat!

    i dont believe it. Lima is the hottest woman alive. HE took her virginity. from a romantic standpoint he is god.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    Well for one these really are just accusations, and stupid people accuse NBA players all the time. That said, if this is true, Marko Jaric is the biggest human male idiot of all time.

  • http://www.slamonline.com John D

    Maybe Lima’s still holding out on him.

  • http://www.hibiahi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    just by the way the captions are placed, it appears the Hot Topics bar says “Marko Jaric acussed of assult is Pitt in trouble”. I found this LOL worthy, i am possibly the only one who thinks so though.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Justin Walsh

    John, naw she kinda hinted that he took her vcard right after marriage.

  • http://slamonline.com Lang Whitaker

    True story: Was emailing yesterday with a PR person who wanted to get Marko Jaric in SLAM. Haven’t heard from them today, though.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Jake Appleman

    I was at that game (I think you mean February…) sitting in David Aldridge’s seat like the snot nosed punk that I used to be. I can’t imagine what Jaric did, though, aside from maybe telling Hakim Warrick to teabag Samuel Dalembert.

    and by you, i mean the person who wrote that article.

    i wonder 2 things: 1. is miss. lima on the market? 2. would she be intrested in possible jail time like Marko’s for getting down with this minor?

  • http://mindyourbusiness@getalife.com Allenp

    I’m just watching to see how this case is handled overall by the mainstream media.

  • http://sfdjilf.com Jukai

    I think Marko was a little pissed off that Lima didn’t want to go for a “triple double” in the bedroom. Career wise, Marko has never had a triple double.
    Frustrated, he probably went out late one night, got drunk, and got called for a flagrant foul. We’ll see if the (law enforcement) officials call this a flagrant one or two.

  • http://nbacheapseats.blogspot.com Chendaddy

    @ciolkstar Actually, I’m sure they all mess around. The point is not to get busted. Jaric has way too much to lose; I bet he thought it was going to be discrete, and this woman played him. That, or he’s just a moron.

  • http://where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com B. Long

    If it’s true, I hate Marko. If this is just another money hungry lying wh0re she should be stoned to death.

    @ Eboy 3:48 – Can you blame him though? Not his fault he’s soft on the court and off it.

  • http://www.hibiahi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    why would a money hungry wh0re choose Marko, over say, Kobe wannabe OJ Mayo, or Rudy Not-G@y, or Darko (who had the freakout of the year when he said he was going to r@pe people, does anyone remember that?), or even just wait til the Lakers come to down and go to the ripe pastures of Kobe?

    this whole comment section is very male.

    Its mnore fun to suggest that Jaric really fooled around, but what are the chances he just smacked some woman’s a$$ in a club in Philly?

    As is this site……

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Allenp, the thing is… nobody knows who Marko Jaric is. His TMZ status is prolly ‘Adriana’s jump off’./ Oh and I don’t buy the virgin thing, she dated Lenny Kravitz. Nuff said.

    wow. his attorneys’ job is gonna be real easy. just call lima as your only witness. confirm they are married and ask the jury if they actually think marko would cheat on lima. case closed.

    Eboy, putting an emphasis on the fact that Jaric is Serbian is not cool. You know, racism has a little sister and she’s called xenophobia.

  • anonymous

    Holy cow. Yesterday I said that it was a safe bet to say Jaric and Marc Gasol weren’t the ones involved. Seriously, I can’t believe it. Jaric?!?!?! The dude who got to marry Adriana Lima? I would have NEVER NEVER NEVER AND NEVER AGAIN thought it.

    Hugh Grant comparisons? No disrespect to Liz, but at least Hugh wasn’t assaulting. This is a whole new level, he cheated on L.I.M.A??? And it’s now a Kobe-like situation? Words fail me…….

    No they don’t: Mr. Jaric, you sir are an imbecile!

  • MarkoIsALoser

    ur a douche bag jaric, what a nub… you got adriana and you wanna cheat on her, dam ur a scrub, you might as well slit your throat your a loser in nba and a nub considering you would cheat on the most goddess chick alive..

  • http://www.slamonline.com Justin Walsh

    hey guys, it’s been discovered no charges will be filed because of lack of credible evidence to prosecute. in lamens terms- it was a bullsh– report.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    i smell a payoff. Good luck getting to ANY bases with Adriana during the next few months, Marko.

  • http://fdklf.com Jukai

    Haha, there’s so many things I loved about this
    I love how so many people were cursing Jaric’s name, calling him as many dirty words as they could think of and comparing him to as many low-level animals and objects as could be brought up… and then it turns out the report was fake.
    I also love how when we learn it’s Marko, everyone can shout things like “EUROPEAN!” or “SERBIAN!” but if it was someone like Warrick and I said, “what do you expect from a black mothafuka like that?” I’d be chased out of here by pitchforks.
    SLAM! I love it!

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    black mf? Really Jukai? You wanna maybe THINK before writing? Serbian or european does not equal cursing out skin colour. I smell something, a closeted something in fact.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    and the core of the namecalling was not his nationality (one commenter mentioned and he got reprimanded, QUICK) but the fact that no one could understand him allegedly doing that to one of the most stunning women around, THREE days before the wedding! If Warrick had done the same, u’d have labeled him an imbecile as well.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    meant to say, i’d have labeled Hakim the same

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Jukai, why are you comparing skin color to nationality? People would have said the same thing if Jaric was French, Chinese, Congolese… I’ve always had doubts about you, now I’m sure. I’ll be ignoring your comments from now on.

  • http://fdklf.com Jukai

    … okay, so bashing nationalities is cool, but skin color is not. Thanks guy, I’m educated. Way to go!
    Darksaber, I never said everyone was doing it, three people did it. How many people said anything about it? One. One person got angry. Plus, had I said “Man, Motumbo assaulted someone? What do you expect from those dumb Africans,” I wonder what responses I’d get? Probably more than one.
    Plus aren’t you the guy the guy that was justifying posters saying homosexual derogatory remarks? Get the hell outta here. What the hell is with you?
    Z is still angry at me for obliterating him at the Kevin Johnson/Nash debate.

  • http://fdklf.com Jukai

    I mean, six people attack a guy named “Lebron-Is-A-Spear-Chucker” but no one bats an eye at homosexual or xenophobic derogatory remarks around here. It’s amazing how people pick and choose the harshness of these attacks. Sickening even.
    I wasn’t expecting to get this backlash. Downright disgusting.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    A nash/kj discussion, yayy. get your kicks where you can get em son, i’m sure you haven’t noticed yet how lame your last argument sounded. Ohhh i made gay jokes about Amaechi crying over team usa’s supposed remarks upon seeing him from a bus, boohoo. You are the champion of tolerance, right? Oh wait, you sure pick your spots when you wanna eh? Dumb africans? Black mf’s? I say again, i smell an something…. Smells like a closet arian. Enjoy life Jukster.

  • http://fdklf.com Jukai

    What? What’s wrong with saying dumb Africans? You just told me that we can say dumb Serbians and Europeans, right? Care to explain to me the difference?
    Closeted Arian? I’m Jewish, you homophobic, half-witted prick. I’d have to break out the damn calculator to figure out how many times you’ve made ill-informed, idiotic assumptions. It seems to be your MO. If you don’t get what I’m saying, then I just downright can’t explain it to you, you’re not smart enough. I’m racist for saying we shouldn’t make fun of Europeans because they’re Europeans? Do you read what you write? Christ and a half, is it the giant helmet over your head that makes it hard to read the screen or is it the reason you’re wearing the helmet that makes it hard to read? Don’t think too hard– I don’t want to be responsible for hurting you.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    it’s cool. We all know how much you pine for Stevie and his impressive dexterity. Keep up the insults dimwit. That’s YOUR M.O. apparently. It’s good to be a bigot isn’t it, Juks? I’ve stated all i had to, your posturing online speaks for itself, and isn’t worth my time or effort. Keep on being the racist champion of gays, hope it pays the bills.

  • http://fdklf.com Jukai

    Ah, generic cop-out answer number 47. Thanks for your time Darksaber, hope those tears running down your cheek doesn’t ruin your keyboard.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    aww, why so feisty Juk’s. No date today? Don’t worry, he’ll call.

  • http://fdklf.com Jukai

    Oh hey, sophomoric gay jokes, cool, I’ll bite:
    At this point, I’m past dating your mother, I’d say you could start calling me Dad in the next couple of months. Although remind her to buy protection, with the way I fool around, if she doesn’t buy some rubbers for me, I’m pulling a Wade and giving that whore the crabs, you hear me?
    I’m sorry. That was mean of me. Your mother is a fine woman. Everyone makes mistakes– I’m sure there’s a reasonable explanation how she failed so badly raising you.

  • http://fdklf.com Jukai

    Feel free to wipe the tears away from your eyes and try and draw up a response in another five minutes or so, cause I’m out of here. I’m glad you’re good with trying to mask the fact that you’re alright with gay bashing and name calling nationalities and cultures by calling me a racist. It’s really a fantastic trait, Darksaber. DUR HUR HOPE IT PAYS THE BILLZ!!!11

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Truth always hurts, eh Juks? Nice comeback though….for a 14 year old. Sorry, had to stifle a yawn there for a sec. Online fighting, it’s soooooo exciting isn’t it. Bye Juksi.

  • pstar

    wow, that was some intense back-and-forth between jukes and darksaber…and in my humble opinion, darksaber got his azz handed to him. c’mon man, if you’re gonna start sh*t you gotta bring it harder than that, your comments were weaksauce.
    also, what happened to innocent until proven guilty??? this is America people!!!

  • http://mindyourbusiness@getalife.com Allenp

    I told y’all the comments were going to end badly.
    Saw this coming a mile away.
    Let me say a few things.
    Jukai’s right, it’s just a reprehensible to make a comment about someone’s nationality as it is about color.
    However, it is curious that Jukai decided to point out the nationality comment when the majority of the comments were about how hot Jaric’s wife is. Almost like Jukai just had something he wanted to get off his chest. Plus, people on this website make lots of insensitive comments based on color. Not as many as at ESPN’s website, but enough.
    Finally, even though the report turned out to be false or something, I thought the initial reaction was bad news. I mean, I understand this is a lighthearted site, but random jokes about sexual assualt aren’t really cool. Plus, talking about how hot his wife is, and wondering why he would “cheat” kind of misses the point.
    Sexual assault is really about attraction, it’s about dominance and power. You could have the best looking wife in the world, and still only truly get aroused when you’re taking somebody by force. The two are not connected.

  • Fred34

    Allen – everything you say is true. It’s just that when it’s against a broke a$$ cat usually an insult or a slap will squash it on the spot. However for anyone who’s got 6-9 figures in the bank – it’s about a lawsuit and a paycheck. It’s serious for both sides, just be wary of those crying wolf and hounding for some cash.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    As you said pstar, in your humble opinion.

  • L33tSauce

    I choose joking around harmlessly over an argument on a topic that doesn’t matter. Jaric is innocent. Let him return to the shadows of the NBA. I’m done with this topic.
