bricalz and DOC That kid is making millions of dollars. He can afford to pay the ticket more than most kids. He knows he has a responsibility to his teammates and the organization. So what are you saying by "cut him some slack"? What have I done other than pointed out that it was IRRESPONSIBLE??? Do you disagree with that? Should we Ignore it? Laugh it off? Pretend it's ok to do that? I'm not going to cut him slack more than I would any other kid. If my kid was arrested for that I would say the same thing. You mentioned the National guard ,not me. I said the team should get on his case. Something inherently wrong with that? You are twisting what I said and blowing it way out of proportion. And btw...half the kids in the country are NOT arrested for not paying fines and DWOL, and do not have the responsibilities that go with making millions as an NBA player.
