Oh Man , maybe im overreacting , but i look up to this guy and first it was the Dunk tape which wasnt a big deal but he could have handled it alot better. I love the way this guy plays on the court but what has always impressed me was the tremendous way he carried himself off the court . a respectul person a kind funny young kid and a true team player and great person on court . this has hurt the way i view him now .
the link to prove he used drugs?
You not perfect, nobody is. So, for anyone to think of him differently because he made a mistake is very very wrong.
dont judge people because they smoke weed. weed is only illegal cuz the prison systems wouldn't be full (and making money) if it was legal. also, tobacco and alcohol companies will never let it be legalized cuz they'd lose a whole bunch of customers!
you know who are the leading two sponsors of the partnership for a drug free america? the tobacco and alcohol industries...
now, if you're a basketball player smoking weed, that's just dumb cuz u need to be in tip top shape, but that shouldn't make u like him less.
To be honest....we all did something we are not proud of.
it says he couldnt handle the instant stardom at age 17 in his JR year and all of the pressure on him and his teammates. but im 16 and this guy is sort of an idol for kids like me at a young age
he smoked a little pot as a jr in hs... I dont know where your all from, but 95 % of the people i know smoked a J or two in HS...
Im sure not smoking would help u on the court more, but come on lets just throw out some names of successful hoopers who got caught smoking and still play in the lg... At least bron was in HS...
Guys who been caught smoking the cheeb:
Kareem is one of the few athletes who can claim they have a prescription to smoke marijuana, which he says he uses to control nausea and migraine headaches. He has been arrested twice for marijuana possession but has a prescription to smoke marijuana in the state of California.

keep the - pts coming, ill keep supplying the facts.. Listen if a b-ball is your role model thats your issue from the go.. Your parents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, counsins they should be your role models... Just look back at the old barkley commercial (I AM NOT A ROLE MODEL)
Whether you gamble, drink, smoke pot, or whatevr your vice is.... You are not a role model, but come on bill clinton even smoked the cheeb..... I have friends who went to college with Quincy Douby - maybe just a cooincidence but he likes his last name in more ways than one..
keep the negatives coming, im trying to get to -200 b4 dgrizzly admits shes a woman

wow who the &$#%#&@! cares about Lebron smoking weed? If he did Cocain, LSD, speed or any other drug that is ACTUALLY DANGEROUS to your health then I'd care. Weed is just a chocolate cake wrapped up in piece of paper. They have the same affect. Make you feel good with minor setbacks but nothing serious unless you do(eat) a lot of it!!
Lol....you sound like a pothead. A piece of Chocolate Cake? LOL
i would 95% of the league has it least tried pot and probably 80% of the world. Who Cares? Also I love lebrons game but he is a total jerk i have seen him out a few times. When they play toronto he comes to a friend of mines club total jerk thats why the whole video thing didnt shock me at all.
These journalists who criticized Michael Phelps and now Lebron are a bunch of hypocrits. I guarantee you most of them experimented with weed in high school or college. The fact that weed is illegal is a joke when alcohol and nicotine are far more harmful on a person's health than weed. I know accountants, teachers, bankers, and lawyers who have smoked weed AFTER going to college.
imo is harmless, but it really doesnt benifit you at all and can make you lazy and unmotivated. Knowing this I try and stay productive to counter it.
Come on weed is a soft drug and it's plant. Whoever said plants are not important for our ecosystem is wrong. I taught it was steroids or something close one for his legacy, LeBron James is not the only one smoking weed okay, many people do, so give weed smokers a break. If there is any suspension for using drugs like weed in the NBA he should be suspended for his action if he still do smoke weed period.
Dumb... this is a non-issue, 17 at the time, really who cares
i think he's into roids...being 6'8 and 270 and being able to move, jump and run like that.
Steroids doesnt make you run faster....and it would have an effect on his shooting because he would strong arm his shots. It would be super retarded for a basketball player to take steroids.
you're not exploring the possibilities. he has a poor attitude... and i'll get docked for saying it. but i'm not afraid to point out that he's a poor sport.
anyway, he's extremely masculine. he moves extremely fast and is very agile for his size.
I don't want your hopes and love for the guy to be broken if you found out in the future that he used em'.
steroids increase muscles. more muscles in your legs will make you run faster.
and even if he was takin roids...you think anyone in the nba is gonna snitch? he, kobe, wade are the products of the nba, they won't be banished ever...because of how much revenue and ratings the nba pulls in from tickets, jerseys and other products from him especially.
thats why bonds and sosa got faster through their careers. (sarcasm)
Yall be comin up with crazy ideas..
How did we go from whether his smoking weed in high school is a big deal to retarded comments on him using steroids?
If he did more hardcore drugs it would be a big deal. I'm not saying cocaine use is okay, in fact it ruins people's lives all the time, but our last three presidents have been coke heads at some point in their lives. Bron smoked some weed, big deal.
In terms of steroid use...there are some freaks out there, people. There have been really freakish athletes since the dawn of time, long before steroids existed. Also, just taking steroids on their own doesn't make you big or fast, contrary to mainstream thought.
Thank you, anybody that is big people say their on steroids. That was the 1st time Ive heard of a basketball player being accused of roids. Pretty stupid.
hahah and we're actin like Allen Iverson doesn't still smoke weed today, Kobe had to try in high school, he was in philly! Shaq is prolly high during all-star break weekend every year, hahah I know we dont believe Carmelo never did... Our last 3 presidents smoked weed.. BFD!!!! lol
Why do they do dumb stuff like this ? They tell the people that Lebron smoked weed in high school like that changes anything about him right NOW , its a waste of there time to inform anyone about what Lebron was doing in high school . I wouldve give a F**k if espn news said Michael Jordan was high off weed his whole career, khus hes still gonna be MJ the greatest. And how does Lebron james smoking weed in high school effect you or me ?
BARACK OBAMA has smoked lots of weed... come on guys. That it's illegal is one of the more ridiculous laws this country has. Freedom? Really?
Someone mentioned that tobacco and alcohol are far more dangerous drugs than marijuana (which is the same thing as pot, weed, ganja, etc.) and I'd like to add prescription drugs to that list... Do you guys think that all those chemically manufactured drugs can be good for our bodies in the long-term?
seems like most people these days are strung out on some sort of prescription their doctor gave them, whether it's for depression or some other medical condition... that's because they want to give you a short-term solution that makes the problem GO AWAY for a bit instead of giving you a long-term solution to actually FIX your problem. And why is that? because they are making BANK because you never TRULY fix your problem!
i asked my doctor if there was anything wrong with marijuana and she said that the only negative side effects are when you SMOKE it, because obviously smoke is not good for your lungs. She also said that she couldn't tell me anything medically harmful in regards to eating SPECIAL brownies or ingesting THC in some other forms... get a vaporizer if you want to save your lungs.
And, regarding the claim that marijuana makes you lazy... NO, some people are lazy and unmotivated, some people aren't, whether or not they smoke weed is mostly irrelevant, although smoking does make u feel content and satisfied.
Not a big deal, at least he admitted it.
of the nba players have smoked a little at some point in their lifes! If you have not you are probably of the few that have not.
Tim Duncan might be the only player who never tried it lol
"tim duncan...might be the whitest player in the league"
Just for the record, steroids wont make you 'faster', but it wont slow you down either. It allows a fast person to get big w/out losing speed.
Perfect example,baseball's 40/40 club (40hrs-power, and 40 steals-speed) 4 members...3 of them are Bonds, Canseco, and A-Rod...we all know what they have in common.
is the whitest player in the league. what is your point. I assume you think only black people smoke weed! come on dude that makes no since at all.
