FAMED DOG ABUSER QYNTEL WOODS MAY REPLACE LEBRON IN CLEVELAND

Qyntel Woods of Poland's Asseco Prokom reacts as he sits on the bench during their men's Euroleague basketball game against Lithuania's Zalgiris in Kaunas March 3, 2010.

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN QYNTEL WOODS COULDN’T SHOW HIS FACE IN NBA ARENAS

Even back in Portland’s bad old days of the “Jail Blazers” there was only one player who was such a scumbag that he had his arrest filmed by local tv crews. That player was former first round draft pick Qyntel Woods. Woods was also the only player that was such a miscreant that the Blazers voided out his contract.

Prior to the Michael Vick incident, Woods was the most famous athlete ever convicted of dog fighting. He was convicted of first degree animal abuse in 2005 for staging dog fights in his house.

Now Woods may be returning to the NBA-as LeBron James’ replacement in Cleveland no less. Sunday’s Cleveland Plain Dealer listed Woods as a possible target for the Cavaliers after the former convict finished on the Euroleague first team All-Offense and All-Defense this past season.
