NBA suspends Telfair two games over gun gaffe

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland Trail Blazers guard Sebastian
Telfair was suspended for two games by the NBA for violating the
league's firearms policy.

The suspension stems from the discovery of a loaded firearm
during a preflight inspection on the team's private plane following
a game in Boston earlier this month.

Telfair told authorities the gun was his girlfriend's, and he
grabbed her bag accidentally when leaving Portland.

No charges were filed and Telfair was fined an undisclosed
amount by the team.

The league said the incident violates the collective bargaining
agreement, which prohibits players from possessing a firearm while
traveling on team or league business.
