Former NBA player gets prison time for drug conviction

Former NBA journeyman and 11-year league vet Corie Blount was sentenced to prison for one year for drug related charges.

In December 2008, Blount was found with a total of 29 pounds of marijuana which obviously wasn’t for personal use as he claimed.

Blount dodged a massive bullet by making a plea deal, he could have received 10 years in the pen.

After retiring, most athletes start businesses that allow them to maintain their way of life, but they are usually legal in the states. Well, lets hope Blount is the last to try ‘street pharmacy’ as a career after sports. Crime clearly doesn’t pay.
