Corey Brewer Says He Was Drug Tested After 51 Point Game

Corey Brewer drug tested after 51 point game

Veteran swingman Corey Brewer was traded to the Houston Rockets this past season and maybe part of the reason Houston wanted him is because of he went to them in 2014.

At the time, Brewer was a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves, when he dropped a career-high 51 points on the Rockets head.

After the game of his life, Brewer had an interesting experience he finally decided to reveal.

How often do people bring up your 51-point game? […] Brewer: “People bring it up pretty often. I just remember it was amazing. I felt like everything I threw up was going in. It was fun. And especially it was fun to do it in Minnesota where we had a rough year, to get the crowd something to cheer about.”

There was a one-hour delay before you talked to media after that, right? […] Brewer: “I had a random drug test from the NBA. So I couldn’t do the interview until I got done with my drug test. I didn’t have to go to the bathroom. So it took a while. It was weird, it was just funny at the same time. I was like ‘Wow, I played the best game of my life, now I gotta go to the bathroom to take this drug test.’”

Hearing Corey Brewer and 51 points in the same sentence was just weird enough for the association to follow up with a drug test.

While the Rockets are still holding out hope on Aldridge, I think his most likely destination within the state of Texas is San Antonio. It just makes too much sense in my opinion.
