It's a horrible suggestion.

Amotivational syndrome, commonly associated with marijuana abuse, is a bad things for an NBA player to have. But this is all very speculative.
Speculative?? I've seen interviews with him, and have heard stories about the smell of his home from people I know on the internet. This is beyond speculation--Im entering Stephen A Smith opinion territory.

I don't mind if a player smokes weed. Many athletes derive a substantial pain relief benefit from marijuana. Being in pro sports is hard on one's body and leads to lots of pain and soreness. I'd much rather he self-medicated with weed than pain pills or alcohol or whatever.
Agreed 100%

I meant nothing negative with that little tidbit. Idc if he smokes weed I literally just stopped after 10 years of daily use. For all we know, it could be his family members smoking it.

Not trying to start “rumors” as it’s being referred to by a couple people here. Only to say maybe it had something to do with it. Jalen Rose on the Jalen and Jacoby podcast had said Ayton needs to look into niacin. Which is commonly used to help pass drug tests for weed. He’s plugged in at times so maybe he’s heard something.

Oh I know you didn't mean anything by it, I was just teasing. I would not be surprised in the slightest if he actually was smoking weed--I just have no idea what led to him ingesting the diuretic.

The facts are he was suspended for having a diuretic in his system. Everything else is speculation.

If there was something positive to report, it would have already been reported.

There is nothing to report. He’ll be back on Dec 14th.

I’m not trading Ayton unless it’s for a player that put us in championship contention otherwise you are just being extremely dumb and short sighted. Blake Griffin is a injury prone 30 year old. Baynes is great but he is also 32. Ayton is only 21 and he if can continue to look how he looked in the opener then I’m only trading Ayton for Anthony Davis and probably a few others. Blake Griffin isn’t one the few others.

Our core looks to be Booker(23), Ayton(21) and Oubre(23), and that core has a chance to be great for a decade, not trading any of the core unless we it gives us a chance to win the championship immediately.
OK. Let's say LeBron gets injure (not a big stretch) and AD sees the handwriting on the wall. He is not winning a championship in LA without LeBron. Monty is a close friend and AD would be the perfect final piece on this roster.

The Lakers come calling. They want:

Ayton, Tyler, and a first rounder for AD (who will be a free agent sometime soon).

Do you pull the trigger?

If AD wants to resign here? Yes I do that trade without hesitation.

I think it's safe to assume the case didn't go to arbitration.

And, as much as I would like to know all the details, I'm glad the national media hasn't latched on to the story. No news is better than positive confirmation that Ayton was taking PEDs.
