He's Boring now    

His old man Yanick is a doper...his Mother, a white beauty from Sweden babied his ass growing up. He's confused, even though he speaks French, he's kind of dumb. He had a poor first year with the Bulls and was part of a conspiracy with other teammates to not listen to or go hard for their coaches...both coaches have been let go and this turd is part of the reason for it.

Smoke all the dope you want a hole, your name is now going to be a joke in the NBA and David Stern just might make an example of you since you are a nobody in his league.

Idiot. Go back to Paris or Sweden.

Looks like daddy's little boy has come full circle. What a hoot. Too bad he's not spending his money on a good dentist rather than pot & booze.

Todays police force needs to start fighting real crime and stop with this petty celebrity nonsense.

This guy was probably a little toasted on a Fri night and got arrested while I'm sure you can buy any amount of crack you want to around the corner.

That's why their called PIGS.

All the people who are talking bad about him for smoking pot I can guarantee has drank alcohol. Hmmm, I wonder, does marijuana make you aggressive?? No. Does it make you black out if you consume too much?? No. Does it lead to over smoking if you consume a little too much?? No. Is there a disease associated with it?? No. Does it make a good looking guy screw a fat ugly chick?? Maybe if he's a retard. Does it make you smell like crap and piss yourself?? No but I have seen plenty of pictures of drunk people doing some disgusting things on the internet. Well, he was mixing but hey, if anything yell at him for the liquor. By arresting him for pot, they are only making it open for ignorant a holes to vent their rage on marijuana some more. Weed isn't bad and you have to smoke it for a long time to get complications. I don't smoke weed or drink. I am open to people who smoke but I can't hang around "social" drinkers.

#36 - I like your attitude. It is refreshing to see a non-smoker see the truth for what it is.

LEAGALIZE IT FOR GOD'S SAKE! WHO CARES. IT'S GOOD FOR SO MANY MEDICAL PROBLEMS, AND JUST THINK, THE SCREWED UP GOVERNMENT CAN MAKE ALL KINDS OF MONEY OFF OF IT.
AND IF YOUR SMOKING IT YOU REALLY DON'T WANT TO GO OUT TO THE BARS AND DRINK AND FIGHT, SO YOU CAN SAVE GAS TOO!

Hey #34, NO not everyone is out looking for crack. And by the way, it's "they're" not (their). Maybe someone from Old McDonald's farm (perhaps a slow moving pig) will show up to help you next time you need 911. I see you're taking time to read and post about this nonsense. Shame on you!!!!

It happened in Gainesville, at University of Florida because of the gaineville cops enforcing their stupid open container policy. So ridiculous, I went there and they are doing it just to get their names in the paper, just like when they tased someone for speaking his mind earlier on in the year.

That's the problem with a lot of athletes. They have all of the drive and intensity to be great athletes,but a lot of them are just as stupid as the average Joe on the street when it comes to substance use and abuse. Shouldn't be a surprise with someone who lets their hair grow like a wild bush.
