“The truth will come out.” Another sex scandal broke out in the NBA

Who is accused of something scandalous this time?

In the history of the NBA, there have been many scandals involving sexual violence against women by players in the league. Now Ben McLemore, the seventh overall pick in the 2013 draft, has found himself in that situation, having played in the league for the Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers.

The basketball player has not played in the NBA since 2022, and is now a player for the Spanish team Rio Breogán, which is in 15th place in the Spanish championship. But closer to the point: the 31-year-old was arrested by police in Oregon and taken into custody. McLemore is accused of raping a woman, which allegedly occurred in 2021 while he was still playing for Portland in the NBA.

Terrible news of the last few days:

“I don’t have much time left to live.” One of the best dunks in the NBA on the verge of death?

The American player asked the Spanish club for permission to appear before the United States courts, without going into details about the exact content of the case. According to McLemore’s representatives, he was supposed to return to Spain in the next three days, but the basketball player was detained. Rio Breogán reacted immediately to the situation: the Club stated that it condemns violence in any form. The team will be waiting for any legal information on Ben’s case from the Oregon court.

Previously, many NBA stars have been accused of sexual violence or harassment, including Chauncey Billups, Bernard King, Eddie Jordan, Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant. At the same time, Kevin Porter was one of the last to appear in the league, surpassing his girlfriend. Houston immediately moved on from the basketball player, so he was traded to Oklahoma, from where he was immediately expelled.

Another high-profile case involves Charlotte forward Miles Bridges. One of the Hornets’ leaders was accused of beating his wife in front of his own children. Bridges completely missed the 2022-2023 season due to suspension, but admitted his guilt and, after serving his sentence, returned to the court, and this season he played 68 games with the Hornets.

The high-profile Porter case:

But back to McLemore. The famous journalist and basketball connoisseur Shams Charania shared a statement from the basketball player on his social networks about the accusations. He says: “The charges I faced in court allege that in 2021 I had sex with a woman who was too drunk to give her consent. They accuse me of using physical force to abuse someone. I will most likely be accused of having an intimate relationship with someone who now claims she did not consent to it.

I did not rape this woman. I never entered into a sexual relationship when I realized the woman was not interested in me. The charge dates back to October 2021 while she played for Portland. It will take some time to discover some facts. At this time, the prosecution has not provided my attorneys with any reports or evidence. My attorneys and I are cooperating fully with the investigation. I fulfilled all their requests immediately and professionally. The truth will come to light. “I am sure we will win and my name will be cleared.”

This case differs from previous ones in that McLemore immediately began to actively work on the investigation. This fact makes you think about what is happening. Maybe Ben is completely innocent. The trial is a delicate matter, but fair. We are waiting for news and developments in another high-profile trial related to the NBA.
