    A Philadelphia man is accused of selling "LeBron James..."

    …heroin that is.

    Marlon Guess, 19, of Wyndel Avenue, was allegedly trying to sell heroin stamped with “LeBron James” and a caricature of a basketball player dunking. Upper Darby police arrested him.

    "I don't think LeBron James would be too happy with this drug-dealer dude using his name on these street bags," Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told the Daily News.

    Guess allegedly sold the NBA superstar-named drug to undercover officers on Sept. 26, according to the Delaware County Times.

    After a car and foot chase -- in which Guess allegedly struck a cop car -- police arrested Guess and confiscated 140 “LeBron James” heroin packets worth about $750, according to various reports.

    Guess’s alleged response to his arrest?

    "He told the officers, 'Man, I know the drill. I ain't talking. I'll be out on bail tomorrow morning,'" Chitwood told the Daily News. "Well, he got whacked with $250,000 cash bail, so he's not getting out too soon."

    Guess remained in jail Tuesday on $250,000 bail. He is set to have a preliminary hearing on counts including drug possession with intent to sell, assault on an officer, reckless driving and related charges on Oct. 4, according to court documents.
