Former NBA player and current ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Williams told the New York Times in an interview that some of his Chicago Bulls teammates smoked marijuana before games during the 2002-03 season.


"I didn't know how to handle it at first," Williams said, according to the Times report. "I didn't know how to be around it. Guys were on the bench, trying to kick it to girls in the stands, having ball boys run over. I mean, some guys were high."

"There were guys smoking weed before games. Guys asking in the middle of the game, 'Do you smell popcorn?' "
Williams also said players gambled.
"They're playing dice in the back of the plane for money," Williams said. "Like, we just lost by 30 tonight! And we've got a game tomorrow! It bugged me out."

Williams' only season in the NBA was with the 2002-03 Bulls, and he averaged 9.5 points. Williams battled depression and considered suicide following a motorcycle accident in 2013 that ruined his pro career.

Who would you guess out of those guys were probably some doing this?

I'll say Corie Blount for sure. Donyell Marshall usually always seemed to have a stoned look on his face. Eddy Curry for sure. & maybe Fred Hoiberg.

yo.

Smoking before the games and being high during the game, is surprising to me. It would me regular to me if they smoked on off days or off season, because I know that alot of top athletes do that, but damn, during the game where you are supposed to give 100% of yourself. Everyone who has ever smoked some knows that you hardly can perform to 75% of your max when you are high.

It was probably guys on the bench who didn't contribute and didn't care to do anything but smoke pot since they wouldn't be playing anyways. I understand a lot of NBA players probably do that but to smoke before a game is pretty dumb.

Jamal Crawford for sure.

Hoiberg maybe, all that smoke couldn't be good for his lungs and his heart condition. Wears a pacemaker.

:laughing: These two names stood out in my mind immediately. Wouldn't be surprised if they nicknamed Corie "Corie Blunt".
