'Bout time, it was starting to get boring around here!   ~lw3

I'm no lawyer, but I watched a lot of Law 'n Order growing up so ....

 

I imagine the driver will absorb the bulk of any serious charges.  Mike won't walk away *ahem* Scott-free, but I don't think anything serious will come of this.  He may get suspended so he and Budz can go go-carting or something.

[scott] listed the skills he wanted to work on in the offseason: defensive foot speed, dribbling, playmaking, and shooting. 

When asked to sum up his offseason plans, Scott kept things brief. 

"Basketball and tattoos."

 

 

@sturt's thread from last week emphasized the importance of the off-season for Mike. There's not one player whose offseason improvement plans I've been more concerned about than Scott's.

 

We've seen Hawks players at Vegas Summer League, at the Skill Factory in Buckhead (w/ our old friend Joe Johnson), at AEBL in Midtown (w/ our not-quite-so-old friend Adreian Payne). Kent's been doing the Tour de Baze around town and playing a little exhibition tennis at the ATP Atlanta Open. Moose is touring Europe now (following Scott's Euro-tour) after playing in Vegas. Both Moose and Baze joined Teague on the runway during the uni unveil. Dennis has been in Cali (w/ P3) working out with Kyle. It's evident throughout these guys are staying in shape and/or working on their game in some capacity.

 

But aside from his Euro trip and maybe back home in VA, Scott's been in-and-around the metro area doing... ??? I don't need to know the answer to that, but I sure as heck hope the Hawks brass knows.

^ On the above: after a little Instagram snooping I do see Scott was working out last week in Germany during his Euro tour, with former YouTube sensation Paul "Germany's Finest" Gudde. So I suppose that's good.

LOL... Great commercial. Blast from the past. I love the dad's pimp wooden drug box. Lol

 

LOL!  For real, plus that 80's porn-stache.

 

POTD by @NineOhTheRino.  Budz' face when he realized he can't come down too hard on MScott ...

Really, really hate this for kids that were scheduled for his camp.

 

I get it that we need to have the political discussion about things like this, but this is one of those things that falls under the category of, "Regardless of what the law is, why not find a healthier way to relieve stress or get a high or whatever it is that you're trying to accomplish by injecting chemicals into your brain?"

 

Just as a human being, not just as a fan, I sure hope this ends up being that place in his life's journey that he turns a page and closes that chapter.

I wouldn't put any money on that if I were you Sturt. I get the feeling this wasn't either Scott's first rodeo.

No money on it, but I can at least say that one particularly close relative of mine had been a slave to Mary since he was in middle school, and when he was in a car accident a couple of years ago, he was caught with enough to end up in jail for awhile. Ended up on 18 mos. probation, tho it could have been worse. The change of mindset didn't happen all at once, but slowly, it has, and today, he's back in college while holding down a warehouse job, and he would say he is in a much better place with his life. I won't even go so far as to say I know he's not still using some, but it's fair to say that the encounter with the law did end up forcing him to figure some things out. And I'm not sure he ever would have been able to do it without having some or all of the chemical fog dispatched from his head.
