A former Laker, who won a championship with the team back in 2002 has got into some trouble.

WTOV9.com reports that Samaki Walker was pulled over in his 2002 Mercedes-Benz in Kingman, Arizona. Walker had illegal drugs in his vehicle, so he attempted to eat eight grams of marijuana before he was arrested.

According to reports officials seized approximately 10 grams of marijuana, in addition to some prescription drugs and eight bottles of liquid steroids.

Walker plays professional basketball in Syria for Al-Jalla Aleppo, where he claims steroids are legal.

In the 2002 championship year with the Lakers, Walker shot 51% from the field while averaging 6.7 points, and 7.0 rebounds in 24 minutes per game.

He averaged 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 10 NBA seasons. Walker last played for the Indiana Pacers in the 2005-2006 season. He has played overseas since then, most recently in Korea and Syria.

One fun fact that you may have forgot about Walker is he was selected 9th overall in the 1996 NBA draft, four picks ahead of Kobe Bryant. Walker also received a black-eye courtesy Bryant back in 2002.

    If he keeps doing drugs he won’t be living much longer. Look what happened to the talented Amy Winehouse.

      Your a damn fool! Marijuana and steroids kill a lot less people than cigarettes or alcohol do. If you don’t believe me, look at the statistics. Your just a sheep and believe everything the media and our government tells you. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol withdraws, which is legal. You don’t get withdraws from marijuana or steroids, that’s why they are used in the medical industry. Do you see the medical industry using alcohol, cigarettes, cocaine, heroin etc.. to treat individuals. Heck no! Just really think about somethings and you will figure they don’t make sense.

      He did. I saw the website where it was auctioned off when I googled his name. I was checking to see how many rings he got while he was with the Lakers and the auction site came up.
