Grizzlies Arthur Speaks on NBA Fine

Memphis Grizzlies Forward Darrell Arthur was contrite in his confession on what happened to get him tossed from the NBA's Rookie Orientation Program.

Arthur attended the Ribbon Cutting of the Grizzlies new Reading and Learning Center at the Boys and Girls Club Downtown..

Arthur, and former Kansas teammate Mario Chalmers, were sent home from the meeting last week after Hotel security found women in their room, and evidence of Marijuana.

Arthur says he didn't have any pot, but realizes he could ruin his reputation.

Arthur says he'll work to do whatever he can to repair the damage...and wants to be an example to youngsters for what To Do...instead of what NOT to do.

The NBA Fined Arthur $20-thousand Dollars...but didn not impose a suspension.

The Grizzlies open Training Camp at the end of this month.
