A Bro You Should Know - Keon Clark


Some of you may know Keon Clark. He is a retired NBA player who's in-game drinking habits made Ron Artest look like a 14 year old girl. After getting drafted 13th overall in '98, Clark gave a big middle finger to anything requiring effort other than drinking and blowing trees. Despite that, the man could definitely ball. He once had 12 blocks in a game against the Hawks. To be honest I can't think of a better lifestyle. Drink whenever your heart desired and go play in front of 20,000 people.

In 2006, he was supposed to go to trial for marijuana and gun charges, but, you guessed it, Clark didn't show. He was located by U.S. Marshals as he was boarding a bus in Houston. There is no doubt in my mind that that bus was going to Mexico and if Keon ever made it across the border his life would have made for one hell of a reality show.

After being brought back to court he was sentenced to 2.5 years in the pen but the sentence was thrown out because Clark did not have a lawyer (classic). At a later hearing, Clark admitted he had never played an NBA game sober, and would normally drink at halftime. Keep holding it down Keon. The world needs more people like you.

Remember that during all these highlights your boy was housed. Unreal soundtrack.
