NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2013 - Hedo Turkoglu of the Orlando Magic has been suspended without pay for twenty games for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program by testing positive for methenolone
Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in '03, sources tell SI - MLB - SI.com
Let's try this one for source: Hedo Turkoglu suspended 20 games for taking banned substance | The Point Forward - SI.com
Thanks I noticed right as I posted that this was to the original article not the Hedo article but I wanted to use the title so badly I jumped the gun in my post
wow how sad...
"The National Post notes that Turkoglu becomes the eighth NBA player to be suspended for performance-enhancing drugs, joining Don MacLean (5 games in 2000), Matt Geiger (2 games in 2001), Soumaila Samake (5 games in 2002), Lindsey Hunter (10 games in 2007), Darius Miles (10 games in 2008), Rashard Lewis (10 games in 2009) and O.J. Mayo (10 games in 2011).
Methenolone is listed under the “Steroids, Performance Enhancing Drugs, and Masking Agents” section of the NBA’s anti-drug program, instituted in the new collective bargaining agreement. Use of substances in this category requires an automatic 20-game suspension for a first violation, a 45-game suspension for a second violation and a dismissal from the NBA for a third violation."
Sadly, Still some weak minded NBA players are doing that! :smirk
20 games is long but it was well deserved and much necessary to raise awareness IMHO!
