Former NBA champion Iman Shumpert was arrested on felony drug charges at a Texas airport over the weekend after police found marijuana in his bag.

Shumpert was reportedly carrying over six ounces on him. And while recreational marijuana is legal in Texas, it isn't federally; meaning its banned from air travel.

The 32-year-old could face up to two years in prison if convicted.

The NBA world reacted to the Shump news across social media.

"Shump must be smoking sherm if he thinks he can stroll through DFW airport with SIX [EXPLETIVE] OUNCES," one user replied. "Texas ain’t California big dog. Jesus."

"TSA: Sir is this your backpack? Shump:"

"Shump look like he started with 7 ounces before he got to the airport," another replied.

"FREE SHUMP!!!!!!" tweeted a Cavs fan.

"Biden about to offer Shump for Britney."

Iman Shumpert played 10 seasons in the NBA between the Knicks, Cavaliers, Kings, Rockets and Nets.
