Klay Thompson G Washington State
Washington States star guard Klay Thompson leads the team in points and assists, and they recently got a big victory against USC. UCLA comes up next on the schedule, and he won't be playing. Why bench your best player? Well because he partied a little toooooo hard after the victory.
Klay, who's father was selected #1 overall in the 1978 NBA draft, was arrested for marijuana possession which led to his suspension. He was pulled over at around 11:00 PM for driving with a busted headlight. Police smelled marijuana coming from the car, which only he was in, and asked him if he had been smoking. Stupidly, because the cops have probable cause at that point to search the car, he said that he hadn't been smoking. He was put in handcuffs and when police acquired a search warrant they found 1.95 grams of marijuana. He was given a citation and released with a future court date.
Thompson leads the Pac-10 in scoring and scored 22 points against USC.
