You forgot that a given percentage of league revenue is guaranteed to go to player salaries.

One of the more common and significant side effects of Opiates like that, is constipation.

He'd be hung over AND #$%#$%$# uncomfortable. Might explain some of his playing.

Well the blended is....

The single malt with 12 year old Robitussin isn’t too bad.

Purple drank is a slang term for a recreational drug popular in the hip hop community in the southern United States, originating in Houston, Texas. Its main ingredient is prescription-strength cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine.

Cough syrup is typically mixed with ingredients such as Sprite soft drink or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy. The purplish hue of purple drank comes from dyes in the cough syrup.

The most popular type of codeine syrup is promethazine-codeine, a prescription cough syrup. The active ingredients are codeine, a narcotic, and the antihistamine medication promethazine. When taken in large quantities, both medications can lead to sedation and altered levels of consciousness.

Ol’ JaMarcus isn’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier...

I'm not even sure he's screwed into the chandelier... When you're too dim to play for Al Davis, that's saying something.

A powerful beverage that bubbled up from the underground Houston rap scene a decade ago and appears to be gaining momentum in popular culture.

That crap is paint thinner

Yeah, but it makes a$$-kicking jello shots. At least, according to Hubby, it does.

Maybe Moochelle should focus on this instead of ‘healthy’ eating. /s

“Purple Drank” Addiction Sweeps the Inner City

There is a new addiction going around among young people in inner-city communities. The latest trend is a legal but deadly cocktail, a mixture of Sprite and Promethazine/Codeine cough syrup.

The drug has been popularized by hip-hop artists, and has even spawned its own music style. But it’s also turning young people into zombies.

Sizzurp, Purple Sprite, lean, Bo, and Barre, are a few street names used to describe the concoction. Teens as young as 14 are experimenting with the drug, a legal prescription medicine used to treat severe cough and upper respiratory conditions caused by allergies or the common cold.

Rap artists like Gucci Mane make it seem cool to be on lean. Lil Wayne can be seen brandishing his styrofoam cup full of a purplish-colored drink in almost every photo in the media. This syrup-sippin’ epidemic has become popular among minority groups, and mixed with other drugs such as Ecstasy, alcohol, and marijuana, can be fatal, especially if they’re operating a motor vehicle.

They have even created a form of music, known as “chopped and screwed,” where the music is chopped down and played at a very slow speed for users of Promethazine/Codeine to enjoy while under the influence.

One 25-year-old who wanted to be identified by the alias Grape George, said he has tried the drink more than 20 times.

“I just do it cuz I like the feeling and it’s an escape from the harsh realities that I face day to day. Can’t find a job and I have to hustle. I’ve lost so many homies to these streets. I have to support myself and my lil’ man. So I do it when I’m having a hard day or just want to delete the bad memories in my mind.”

He says the syrup relaxes him and makes his mind process things at a slower rate than normal.

I know they aren't quoting Russell here, but boy, does this explain a lot about him.
