Another Lions player busted for marijuana

From Comcast SportsNet
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested Tuesday in Alabama on a charge of possessing marijuana, authorities said. Citizens called to complain that Fairley's Cadillac Escalade was speeding through a lower-middle class neighborhood in Mobile, said city police spokeswoman Ashley Rains. Officers smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle and found a small amount in an ashtray, Rains said. Fairley and a passenger were booked into Mobile's metro jail facility on a misdemeanor marijuana possession. Fairley was released a short time later on 1,000 bail. Fairley was a standout at Auburn University and the Lions' first-round draft pick. As a junior, he was the Lombardi award winner as the nation's top lineman and helped led the Tigers to the 2010 national title. His arrest comes after Lions running back Mikel Leshoure was caught chewing marijuana during a traffic stop March 12 in southwestern Michigan. A police report said Leshoure was a passenger in a car stopped on Interstate 94 in Lake Township. The officer reported seeing him chewing marijuana and noticed small pieces on his shirt. Leshoure and the driver were ticketed for marijuana possession. The Lions released a statement saying they were aware of what happened with Fairley and that they were continuing to gather information. "We hold all of our players to a high standard of behavior and the recent charges against Nick and Mikel Leshoure are not consistent with those standards," the statement says. "We are extremely disappointed."

Iguodala on Klay's fashion: 'He doesn't know which way he wants to go'

Iguodala on Klay's fashion: 'He doesn't know which way he wants to go'

Klay Thompson was assisted by Andre Iguodala on 57 buckets during the regular season.

Off the floor, Iguodala is trying to assist Klay when it comes to fashion.

"Klay should wear staple pieces. He should wear the same thing every day," Iguodala told Logan Murdock of Bleacher Report. "He should dress like a Silicon Valley startup CEO."

But...

Klay "doesn’t know which way he wants to go."

In the feature, Iguodala opened up about the general fashion sense of his teammates and his own style.

“I’m wearing a blazer, like, all the time," Iguodala said. "That’s my go-to. A blazer, and I can just figure out if I want to wear jeans or slacks. Turn it into a suit. I can wear a turtleneck. I can wear a button-up (or a) gray tee.”

Steve Kerr is going through a difficult time.

And LeBron James wants the Warriors' head coach to know that he's thinking about him.

“My thoughts and prayers go out to Steve Kerr, man," James said through Uninterrupted on Monday. "I'm not quite sure of the illness that he got going on, but anything that'll keep him away from the game, I know it can't be the best. So my thoughts and prayers from my family to Steve Kerr and his family, man. I wish you a healthy recovery.

"And whatever that you going through, I hope the man above continue to put his blessing on top of you and the family, man, and you pull through and get back to the sideline and just get back to just being able to be you on a day-to-day basis.”

Kerr did not coach the Warriors in Game 3, will not be on the sideline for Game 4 and is out indefinitely.

He did attend the Warriors' shootaround on Monday morning.

LeBron and the Cavs completed the sweep of the Pacers on Sunday.

Cleveland will face the winner of the Raptors-Bucks series -- which is tied at 2-2.
