Rashard Lewis’ Heightened Testostrone

The Orlando Sentinal reported that Rashard Lewis has taken an over-the-counter supplement that containts DHEA, a steroid that may help players fight through fatigue.  Lewis has come out to claim like every single athlete that he did not know that the supplements he bought contained this chemical.  This excuse has been used so many times in baseball that I can’t imagine people are still going to buy into it.

While Lewis may have made a genuine mistake, it’s foolish to think that these players don’t have personal trainers and nutritionists who tell them what to eat and what supplements they may take.  Lewis does not go to the local GNC and pick up some pills without looking at the label and just start taking them on a daily basis.  While fighting off fatigue definitely helps out in basketball, normally steroids would hinder the performance of a player because good players are usually lean and lengthy.

Plus, the NBA is more known for it’s cocaine use in the 1970’s.   Everyone knows weed is the current drug of choice. According to this article by the New York Times, over 70 percent of the players use it, and this is back in 1997!

Don't sue me NBA, it's Joakim Noah's fault!
