Upper Darby police in Philadelphia busted a major heroin dealer who who reportedly had 140 packets of smack labeled, "LeBron James."
The packets include a silhouette of a man dunking a basketball.
Kind of like Michael Jordan's Jumpman logo, except with dark circles around the eyes, constant licking of the lips, and track marks on the arms and legs!
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says that different packets of heroine have varying names, like "Hazel," "Helen," "Horse," and "Brown Sugar."
But this is the first time an athlete's name appears on one of the packets.
According to police, an undercover cop reportedly made a buy from a Philly dealer named Marlon Guess at about 6 p.m. Thursday.
The undercover officer paid Guess $750 for 140 bags of LeBron.
"I don't think LeBron James would be too happy with this drug-dealer dude using his name on these street bags," said Chitwood.
It's a sad thing to see LeBron James' name being associated with this kind of thing.
Even sadder that this wasn't discovered this time last year.
Think of all the jokes we missed out from the haterz!
IT ONLY GETS YOU HIGH FOR THREE HOURS!
I ASKED THE DEALER FOR DIME BAG OF LEBRON BUT ONLY GOT 3/4ths!
I SNORTED SOME LEBRON HEROIN BUT IT MADE ME CHOKE!
