Surprise, Surprise: Good guy Haslem arrested for marijuana possession




Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem was arrested Sunday for possession of marijuana following a traffic stop in Miami-Dade County.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This isn’t good for Udonis Haslem or the Miami Heat.

After all, Haslem is heavily connected to the area. He was born in Miami, attended Florida University, and has spent his entire career with the Heat.

This summer the club signed him to a five-year extension, in part, because of his positive standing in the community.

Now taking a toke on the whacky stuff doesn’t make Haslem a bad guy, but it does show poor judgement and must make Executive Pat Riley question his professionalism.

Of course, the Heat probably thought they were past these issues when they dealt troubled Michael Beasley to the Minnesota Timberwolves this summer.

Well, they’re not. The surprise is that Haslem is the player in trouble.
