In December 2008, ex-NBA big man Corie Blount was arrested for possessing all of this:
Corie insisted it was for personal use; specifically, for his 40th birthday party the following month. He insisted that he was not a dealer, that he was not destitute and in need of an income; instead, he tried to convince the prosecutors and the world at large that he merely listened to the bad judgement of friends, and got caught out.
Problem was, that's still a hell of a lot of weed. 29 pounds to be exact. And so while trafficking charges were dropped in a plea agreement that saw Corie plead guilty to two counts of possession, the judge was still not convinced. He sentenced Corie to a year in prison, five years probation, 250 hours community service, and ordered him to forfeit some cash and some cars. Corie had taken the plea agreement in the hope of avoiding prison, but it didn't work out that way. And it didn't help that the sentencing judge decided to have his own personal Youtube moment.

- Corie Blount
Still in prison.
It's hard to know for sure, but Corie Blount seems to have a Twitter account. On it are no Tweets, but there IS a picture of a man that looks decidedly like Corie Blount wearing a sombrero. Happy about that. But is it the best potentially-real NBA player Twitter account out there? No; that honour belongs to James Posey, whose only two tweets are pretty divine.
