NBA Players NFL Players Nightmare Clients of the Week

Nightmare Clients for the Week of July 16th-July 23rd

We miss DetlefSam Perkins and Detlef Schrempf, step to the side. Your one-time Seattle Supersonics teammate, Shawn Kemp is busy ruining his image after helping you to a 64-18 record in 1995-1996. Before we get into the nightmare clients, please enjoy this clip of Kobe Bryant picking off Detlef Schrempf in 1999. I think I speak for everyone out there…we miss you Detlef. And now, your nightmare clients of the week!

1. Shawn Kemp

Remember when Shawn Kemp checked into a rehab clinic in 2001 to curb his cocaine addiction? Seems like yesterday. Anyway, Kemp has recently decided that possession is the way to go. In 2005, he was arrested for possession of cocaine and marijuana, and on Friday, he was charged once again for possession of marijuana [Former All-Star Kemp charged with drug possession]. The real question, Mr. Kemp., is did you really think it was a smart idea to possess marijuana while driving without a license plate? Yeah…

2. Matthias Askew

Football players are large…especially defensive tackles. So when a police officer is trying to arrest a defensive tackle and he resists, sometimes the Taser has to be used [DT Askew latest Bengal in trouble with authorities]. Is it really that big of a deal to move an illegally parked car and show a cop your identification? There have been 4 Bengals charges with criminal offenses as of late. The Bengals do not need any more bad PR. In addition, if you are on the team, try not to do anything stupid in the near future, because I have a distinct feeling that the media will expose it and amplify it.
