Magic Lewis Tests Positive for Steroids

According to league sources, Lewis was taking nutritional supplements at the end of last season that unknowing to him contained a substance commonly known as DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) -- a chemical compound made naturally in the body but also found in numerous over-the-counter supplements at nutritional stores. The substance is banned by most sports leagues, including the NBA.

Tony Dutt, Lewis' agent, said: "We're just getting word of some things, so at this point I don't want to make a comment on it."

"It's our understanding it was a vitamin supplement."

One source said he believed Lewis's positive test was "an honest mistake."

"There are more than 100 banned substances on the league's list and athletes have to watch everything they take from common cold medications to vitamins to supplements," the source said.

It's within reason to believe he unknowingly took it if it was a cold medication or something of that sort but nutritional supplements? Who in thier right mind wouldn't check that first?????

Lol, what a nub.

He'll be off. Just not being careful with regulations.

I doubt this is a scenario where he was actually going out of his way to take steroids to actually supplement muscle growth.

It's such BS man.

You cheated. For me it would have to be SO accidental like:

"An over the counter medicine made him fail that is new, and wasn't on the banned list."

Then I MIGHT believe you, but I still probably won't

The results of this study suggest that supplementation with 100 mg x d(-1) of either androstenedione or DHEA does not independently elicit a statistically significant increase in lean body mass, strength, or testosterone levels in healthy adult men over a 12-wk period.
Effects of dehydroepiandrosterone vs androstenedio...[Med Sci Sports Exerc. 1999] - PubMed Result

If those tests are accurate, i think 10 games is probably right. It's nothing excessive.

Wow. I disagree.

It was a legal substance, just on the banned league list. If youthink forone minute that any of your precious raps players abide by that list 100%, you've gone mad.

I've had to abide by it, trust me, it's a pain In the ass. In less you actually believe he was trying to cheat, which would be silly, vilifying the guy is a little petty.

He is trying to cheat. He's a 6'10 forward and he's only around 200 pounds? GG!

Over the counter 'roids are far less serious than secluded-island-injected-into-butt 'roids.

10 days seems right for a first offense.
