If you've ever attended a university that plays in top level athletics, you've likely seen some of the school's best athletes partaking in illegal activity. Perhaps you even have one of those "I smoked with the starting quarterback!" tales. The fact of the matter is, college kids do stupid things all the time. Reggie Redding got caught.
Just because college kids do stupid things though doesn't make it okay. Especially if you're one of the key players on one of the nation's best basketball teams.
The Daily News reports:
According to Radnor Township police, two plastic bags of marijuana were
found in Redding's car. Villanova Public Safety officers ended up in
the vicinity of Redding's car, parked in one of the dorm lots, while
they were trying to find a car that had hit a traffic sign on campus.
Why do athletes get the preferential parking spot treatment? Getting a parking spot at my college was like winning the lottery.
It's unclear how Redding getting caught with the sticky green will impact his standing with the university and the basketball team more specifically. But as Dick Jerardi points out, "Redding's issues with the university could be more difficult to work through than his legal issues."
Drugs are bad, m'kay?

Have you ever been invited to a friend’s birthday party but you weren’t able to go? Once they heard you couldn’t go, they would then say, “you weren’t invited anyway?”
President Donald Trump withdrew his invitation to the Golden State Warriors and guard Steph Curry to visit the White House after winning the 2017 NBA Championship. Trump said Curry was “hesitating.”
Curry told reporters Friday that he would vote against the Warriors visiting the White House and President Trump.
Curry received support from fellow NBA players including 4-time MVP Lebron James, who denounced Trump’s taken-back invitation in his most re-tweeted post ever.
Golden State's statement:
5-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant:
Golden State power forward and teammate Draymond Green:
Sixers forward James Michael McAdoo, who signed a two-way contract with the team in August:
Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal:
Two-time All-Star Baron Davis:
After Trump's comments about the NFL and NBA in the last 24 hours and North Carolina's Men's Basketball team not visiting the White House (because of a scheduling conflict), it is hard to believe any championship-winning teams will be making the trip to the Nation’s capital anytime soon. Except the Patriots.
