Ex-NBA Player

Conspired to Buy 400 KILOS Of Coke

... Cops Say

1/21/2014 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Disgraced NBA player Javaris Crittenton was part of a MASSIVE drug ring -- that was hoping to move 400 KILOS of cocaine and 10 POUNDS of weed ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ Sports.

We broke the story ... the former Washington Wizards player was arrested in Atlanta last week during a sting operation that netted 20 suspects ... some with stereotypical drug cartel nicknames like "Crutch," "Chop" and "Carlito."

FYI -- 400 kilos is roughly 881 pounds. That's A LOT of blow.

Officials say the drug ring has been operating since at least 2012.

Crittenton -- a former NBA first round pick -- is also facing unrelated murder charges in the 2011 shooting death of an ATL woman.

Yes another American sports stars goes bad, blame it on his upbringing, blame it on abuse, blame it because he was not treated well as a kid,..but don't blame it on him. Now of these overpaid clowns are ever responsible for their own actions.
