PEDs in the NBA?

I've always said that NBA players will never use steroids, because it screws up one's mechanics. But Orlando Magic forward Rashard Lewis has tested positive for a banned substance, which he said he accidentally got over the counter. As a result, Lewis will be suspended for the first ten games of the 09-10 season. While steroids in the NBA is possible, I would be shocked if Lewis purposely took steroids. Lewis is a lights out shooter, as he showed throughout the playoffs, and steroids would throw off his shot. It would be much more likely for a big man like Dwight Howard or Shaq to take steroids, as they spend most of their time down low. I am in NO way accusing anybody of 'roiding, nor do I think they are.

Hey There!

I've started this blog, Diverse Sporting Rave, to combine the two best parts of entertainment: Sports and Pop Culture. I will be "raving" and giving my opinion on all matters related to a "diverse" blend of sports and pop culture. Any happenings in the sports world that are connected to pop culture, or vice versa, will be raved about here. Oh, and be sure to follow and check back for updates!
