Pictures from Marcus Williams’ trip to Beijing. Redman smoking off camera to the left. Beijing’s current air pollution crisis has been blamed on various causes such as China’s exponential economic and inudstrial growth. Lack of environmental regulation at the national and provincial levels has been cited as well. Beijing officials claim the emergency will lift on Tuesday when winds blow the smog away from the city. Rumor has it Tuesday is also when Marcus Williams is scheduled to fly out of Beijing for the US. Smog. Marijuana smoke. Same thing. Williams of Shanxi Zhonghu was suspended by the Chinese Basketball Association for six months after testing positive for marijuana. He was the first player to be banned for drug use by the CBA. The former Wildcat’s excuse went one better than claiming it helped with his cataracts. “Williams has been bothered by stomach problem for a long time so he brought some marijuana to China as a painkiller,” said [Williams' agent Zhiyu] Shen. “He suffered from a stomachache before the match and the medicine from the team doctor did not work,” he said. “So he had some marijuana and did not tell anyone,” Shen added. Williams was drawn to take the test in the Dec. 9 match when Shanxi clinched a 103-99 away win at Jilin. So Williams eats something wrong and figures weed is the cure for his stomachache? That’s straight Blatche. Williams has been reduced to begging for his job back and claiming how much he loves the team and fans. He sounds worse that a soccer player claiming love for his new team even though he couldn’t place its location on a map if his life depended on it. Going back to Seattle should clear that weed smoking problem right up.
