There is nothing unusual about this story. It's your basic "former NBA player arrested for (offense)" tale. This time it's Isiah Rider, formerly J.R. Rider, who TMZ reports is behind bars for violating his parole. 
Former NBA 1st round draft pick Isaiah "J.R." Rider was arrested in Arizona this week for violating his probation ... TMZ has learned.

Rider -- who played in the NBA from 1993 to 2001 -- is currently behind bars in Maricopa County on a no-bail hold.  It's unclear why police believe Rider violated his probation.

Rider's probation stems from a 2010 incident -- where he fled from police after they tried to pull him over for driving erratically. He pled guilty to unlawful flight from a law enforcement vehicle.

While we hope Rider is able to get his life back on track, the real reason we're posting this is an excuse to embed this.

You keyboard typing nerds born into trust funds and private schools wouldn't know a thug if you saw one, you see the color of someones skin...and a crime, and automatically that individual is a thug..... I bet Bernie Madoff and Conrad Black are your heroes.

The majority of guys I see getting into trouble are those with failed careers.I'm sure getting into a little trouble with ol Jonny Law might be the least of there problems.

Pretty pointless article there are lots of athletes that get in trouble and don't even make the news.  Most of the minority athletes make front pages for throwing gum on the ground.  I don't see David Robinson in the news or in trouble.  He's too business building schools and managing his real estate business.

Sad Story

Rider had skills. I hope he gets his life back on track. Forget basketball, I just hope he gets things going again on a personal level.

Why does everyone have to be so hateful when people make mistakes? Sad, every black athlete who is arrested is called a "thug" by the people who frequent this website. Maybe when you make a mistake, or somoene in your family does..I will call them a "thug".

Funny how Mr. Bronco here calls a man an "idiot" without even knowing him.... you sir are the idiot. I hope someone kicks you in the jaw when your down.I guess being a Bronco fan you have little to nothing to be positive about.

Rider was the worst kind of example of a ,so called, NBA player. For what he could do on the court he never matured beyond the 16 year old gangster thug he acted like. No respect for anybody or the game and apparently no respect for himself. The guy is a complete lose who can rot in jail. You can't reform an idiot like him.
