The Pacers—still reeling from the effects of the Palace brawl; multiple arrests of Stephen Jackson, among others; and attendance in sharp decline—had to love this from David Harrison, who told an Indianapolis radio station upon his return from a five-game drug suspension:

"I'm saying … marijuana, is it that bad? Following rules blindly doesn't mean you're right just by following those rules. A long time ago George Washington sat around, didn't want to pay taxes to the crown. There's other things going on, but the rudimentary part of our American Revolution was we didn't want to pay taxes [without representation]. And we broke that rule. And we have America today. You know, if we would've lost that war, George Washington would be Benedict Arnold.

"Nicotine won; the tobacco industry won. That's the thing, they wouldn't want marijuana to be legal. It causes less cancer and actually, I've read studies where in cities with very bad air pollution like in Indiana, it helps protect you from lung cancer."

Never mind that Indiana is a state, not a city. It's not clear whether Harrison believes Washington was smoking weed during the American Revolution, though it could be why the nation's first president didn't die from cancer.

Washington opened his inaugural address with "Fellow citizens ..." Or was it "Dudes …"

I can just imagine Harrison high out of his mind while saying that.

Classic.

I found it a great article...  

David is trying to rock the boat, but it is unfortunately one he riding on.  I don't disagree with his point of view.  

~ The rules of the league are what they are.  Smoking weed is a no-no.

~ Smoking weed is still against the law.  It shouldn't be, but it is.  As a public figure he just put a target on his car for probable cause search at every stop.

At a time when the league is trying to make a good name for itself and produce players that people can look up to, you can not make these statements unless you are planning on playing in Europe next year.

He is not an idiot, but this article was a dumb thing to do.

when you are making a small fortune playing a game and have a very limited time in which to do it then break the rules that will eventually get you tossed YOU ARE AN IDIOT

Portland record 54-28
Chicago record 41-41
