NBA Suspends Evans, Rush and Others

by Ryne Nelson

Tyreke Evans will be sitting out the first game of the season for reckless driving, while Brandon Rush was suspended for five games for violating the League’s drug policy, and Kenny Hasbrouck drew a two-game suspension for DWI.

Video of Evans’ Grand Theft Auto-esque reckless driving emerged on the Sacramento Bee’s website last month, and stirred up some interest in Evans’ late-May arrest.

Friday’s suspension was Rush’s third violation of the Anti-Drug Program. Rush was expected to start for the Pacers this season, but this news weakens his case in a surprisingly crowded Pacer backcourt that includes Mike Dunleavy, Dahntay Jones and rookie stud Paul George.

If Heat guard Kenny Hasbrouck secures a roster spot in Miami, he’d be suspended without pay for two games “for pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated, in violation of the law of the State of New York.”

    Through the middle of the broad way of the city; also, on either side of the river was the tree of life with its twelve varieties of fruit, yielding each month its fresh crop:
    and the leaves of the tree were for the healing and the restoration of the nations.

    are they testing athletes for weed now or did he get caught with it. cuz if hes getting caught he really needs to learn to smoke his stuff in privacy and be a little more cautious. many guys in the L do it so im not in shock but this is gonna give him a bad rap when he really doesnt deserve it.

  • wtf

    Tyreke’s offense is more forgivable. Just a young kid with a fast car acting stupid. No one remembers Derrick Rose was busted for the same thing before his rookie season. But Brandon Rush? If I was Larry Bird I’d waive him AND Lance in a heartbeat.

    Hey philosopher I think it’s brother not brethren when you’re talking to only one person.
