Zach Randolph's Hoop Posse crew involved in drug-related assault?
Police served a search warrant at the West Linn home of former Trailblazer Zach Randolph early this morning, but officials said the current NBA star for the Memphis Grizzlies was not a suspect in their investigation.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: This isn't Vinny Chase and Entourage.
Talented power forward Zach Randolph lives with childhood friends in every city he plays, and these friends, known as The Hoop Posse, have a reputation for causing and/or finding trouble.
For instance, The Hoop Posse were the reason fans dubbed Portland the Jail Blazers. Local police likely had Randolph's home on speed dial.
There was a drug charge in Indianapolis last summer -even though Randolph had changed teams several times and was now with the Grizzlies.
Now reports have surfaced that police are investigating a drug related assault at Randolph's Memphis home. Z-Bo wasn't involved, but was home when the incident allegedly happened.
To be fair, Randolph has been a model citizen for the Grizzlies. He has led on-and-off court, and signed a four-year, $60 million extension in April.
Unfortunately, Randolph is followed by The Hoop Posse. So trouble is never far away.
