Ex NBA Player Rodney White Arrested For Growing Weed in His Home

Not sure what his “job” or bussiness is now, but I’m guessing Mr.Rodney White runs his own bussiness. Or he has a habit in which he came up with a way to save money, since he’s no longer making NBA money.

White was the #9 draft pick in the 2001 draft for the Detroit Pistons. White hasn’t been in the league since 2005 after stints with the Pistons, Nuggets, 76ers and Warriors.

“During the search, an elaborate underground bunker was located, where detectives found a hidden marijuana grow room,” Redmond said.

Based on that discovery, agents got a search warrant for a residence on Montibello Drive in Mooresville. Redmond said detectives found more than four pounds of marijuana; an assortment of firearms; grow lights; planting materials; and other items used to grow marijuana.

Jocksandstilettojill, pointed out a good point when she said this is why it’s SO important for athletes to have a transition plan. You can’t play D-league or get signed overseas for the rest of your life if the NBA doesn’t work out. What is done with all this free eduation that student “athletes” recieve right after high school? Are these degrees not put to use? Are they even doing their own work in college? Doesn’t seem to be the case.
