Brad Miller Suspended Five Games, Probably for Weed

From the NBA:

The NBA announced today that Brad Miller of the Sacramento Kings has been suspended without pay for five games for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program. Miller’s suspension will begin with the first game of the 2008-09 NBA regular season for which he is eligible and physically able to play.

F*cking beautiful.

According to a cursory review of the CBA, this would indicate a third weed offense.

UPDATE: The Bee has Miller's statement.

"I want to apologize to my family, teammates, fans and entire Kings organization, " Miller said in a statement released by the team. "I made a mistake. It was an error in judgment and I'm very sorry. I regret it deeply. It's something I won't and can't take lightly. I hope to bounce back from this as a better person and I'm excited about the upcoming season."

Chin up, homey. Life's grand. Just stop smoking, or at least ask Josh Howard for advice on beating the tests.

(By the by, Grant Napear ripped Howard to high hell when all that noise went down. I imagine he'll have a softer tone with respects to his buddy Brad.)
