The once very promising basketball star has been in a slight downward spiral for quite some time.  20-year-old Shabazz Muhammad who was once found to have lied about his age was found in trouble yet again when he was sent home from the NBA Rookie Transition Program.  The Timberwolves general manager was very unhappy with his actions and could have a punishment in store.  Read more after the jump.

Muhammad, the UCLA product, struggled at the NBA Summer League for the Timberwolves and didn’t help himself by being the only player kicked out of this year’s NBA Rookie Transition Program. The violation was minor — he reportedly had a female guest in his room that wasn’t pre-approved by the faculty — but it was just the latest in what’s been a tough year for the former Bruin. And, if it doesn’t get better soon, things could get worse: New general manager Flip Saunders told the Star Tribune’s Jerry Zgoda that a trip to the the Timberwolves’ D-League team in Des Moines could serve as Muhammad’s punishment if he doesn’t get his act together.

Muhammad is a very talented player so I hope he gets his act together and begins to show maturity and responsibility.
