    lmao
    I just talked about it a few days ago in another forum. I am glad I'm not wacko.
    KNEW it was incredibly fishy the way he was sick one day the very next "fell off the stairs" and then was out of the season.

    100% why we can never be dependent on Michael Beasley (although I love his game and think he deserves that PT).

    Malakas. You know any dirt on this at all? What kind of substance would this be? I have a hard time believing its cocaine, but I wonder if meth or crack or heroin could be at play.

    no clue.
    Mayo had won the starting spot as pg and at the end of the season suddendly one day was out with sickness and the very next moment he fell off the stairs and was out of the season. That's all the team leaked. Kidd though was very upset about it and even said "yeah it's very weird what happened isn't it?"

    I was certain smth was fishy but I never expected an outright banishment from the league.

    His bro is/was in Marquette playing bball and was always high.

    But it's a hard drug not PEDs.
    Perhaps he was even caught by the police distributing it?

    no he lost all the extra weight last summer and was back to normal.

    He was depressed with his grandma's death that's why he got fat but then he lost it all.
