15 Most Embarrassing Arrests in NBA History

Professional sports, and the NBA in particular are a lightening rod for attention, both negative and positive. One of the main things that gets attention in the NBA is when one of the players gets arrested.

Most of the arrests are lesser violations, as countless basketball players have been arrested for having a bit of pot (or some with bucket-loads of green), and those are to be expected, really.

The problem with the NBA is that many of the players are anointed as future superstars as early as middle school, and they become egotistical people before graduating high school.  That, and teams resisting punishing these players too harshly lead to more serious violations or the creation of a team like the Jail Blazers.

Some situations are just embarrassing for players who were once on a high pedestal, while others are embarrassing for both the players and the league.

So which arrest was the most embarrassing?  I'll run down the list of the top 15 for you right now.
