Zach Randolph and The Hoop Posse Strike Again

A longtime friend of Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph faces drug dealing charges after he was stopped in Indianapolis driving an SUV owned by the NBA player.

Court documents say the 32-year-old man was arrested May 11 after officers who stopped him for a traffic infraction found more than three ounces of marijuana in a cooler inside the Cadillac Escalade.


HoopsVibe's Call: Just when Randolph thought he was out, The Hoop Posse pulls him back into the headlines.

The veteran supposedly cut ties with his old entourage that was notorious for breaking the law. And this was why Randolph supposedly had such a banner campaign for Memphis: posting 20-10 numbers, making the Western Conference All-Star team, and helping the Grizzlies crawl closer and closer to respectability.

Apparently not.

To be fair, Randolph isn't yet guilty of anything except poor judgement. But it's never wise to lend/give a friend your car, who happens to roll with three ounces of the 'icky-icky'.   

Randolph, it seems, isn't quite out The Hoop Posse. However, he may want to re-think this relationship, especially heading into a contract year.

Got thoughts on Randolph's boys once again making news?
