Eddie Griffin of the Minnesota Timberwolves wins the worst sports story of 2006 - hands down. Griffin also should face some interesting crowds next season when the NBA resumes. it will be interesting to see how he *handles* it. My buddy BUMF had a great summary of the NBA - a league now dominated by way too many egos and attitudes.

On March 30, Griffin was drunk and masturbating when he crashed his luxury SUV into a parked Suburban outside a store in Minneapolis, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday by the man whose Suburban was hit in the crash.

Several of the 911 callers that night said Griffin was drunk. One witness said Griffin told him he was watching pornography in a DVD player mounted on the dashboard of his Cadillac Escalade SUV when he struck a Chevy Suburban parked on University Avenue Southeast.

The location where Griffin crashed is located a couple miles from the Target Center where Griffin had played with his team several hours earlier. Abed Hassuneh, who is the brother of the victim, said Griffin told him, "That he was masturbating himself going down that street. That's how the accident happened because he was not paying attention. He's paying attention to that video and all of a sudden he's shovelled somebody's car on the top of the sidewalk."

This is not the first time that Griffin has been in trouble with the law. Griffin suffered from alcoholism, and his troubles piled up quickly. In 2003, the Houston Rockets released him after he missed practices and a team flight. Griffin signed with the Nets in January 2004, but missed the entire 2003-04 season when he entered an alcohol rehabilitation center. In February 2004, Griffin violated a court-ordered curfew stemming from an aggravated assault charge against his ex-girlfriend (he was accused of hitting her and shooting at her), and spent 11 days in jail. He plead guilty to deadly conduct in March over the aforementioned incident, and was sentenced to 18 months' probation, fined $2,000 and ordered to take anger management classes.

Comedian Eddie Griffin now has some new material and this gives a whole new meaning to unwinding after the game with the film.
