    I hope it wasn't drugs... especially considering what is going on with Lamar Odom..

    Drugs alcohol or a mental breakdown. He also missed the day before due to some kind of "illness". I hope he's fine and can recover soon though it doesn't look so good right now.

    Heat can't catch a break.

    Rumor was it was the drug called "Flakka" ... I had never heard of it before, but supposedly a new synthetic drug.

    Oh man if it's flakka that is some crazy stuff. Super cheap and makes you do some weird sh!t. I think it's a derivative of "bath salts" and I know we've all read stories of people on "bath salts".

    Why would Green who is a millionaire be on some weird sh!t super cheap drug? At least be on expensive drugs? I know it's just a minor detail but doesn't make sense.

    Probably it's a drug that the nba does not test for.

    Read up on it and it sounds... not good. Hopefully those rumors are false.

    Probably also because they don't think anyone who is an NBA player is stupid enough to take Flakka

    So you're saying he chewed off his own finger?

    He's another lost soul. Being rich is not everything as many as you think. I remember being broke and enjoying the smaller things more.

    Because he's Gerald Green. There's a reason why such a talented player had so much trouble making in the league.

    If the Flakka thing is true, then he just got promoted to Advanced Stupid.

    I read a couple things on this Flakka drug and seems if he really was on, then he will be sent off to the psych ward. But there are a lot of other things it could be.
    It could be an adverse reaction to a combination of medicine and alcohol.
    A mental breakdown. Some other psychedelic drug.

    Also the NBA doesn't seriously test for drugs. Most of the players smoke marijuana just are careful and don't get caught.

    So we're just going to ignore the fact that perhaps he unknowingly took the drug or that someone spiked it and gave it to him?

    That is, if that's even the reason that he was hospitalized.

    I live in Miami, Flakka is probably the most dangerous drug out right now. You literally get superhuman strength and you feel like your whole body is on fire until you strip butt ass nekkid. I sure hope for greens sake he didn't take any damn flakka.

    He missed the game just the night before due to "illness". Do you think while he was ill in his house someone came and spiked his chicken soup? Or that he was lazy to go to the match and do his job and called in sick and instead went out to a club and someone happened to come and spike his drink?

    Such a wasted talent; hope it doesn't end in a wasted (and/or lost) life.
