Ha! I knew Orlando could not beat the Celtics without some sort of artificial assistance. Turns out Rashard Lewis was playing with an elevated testosterone level. No wonder he had the balls to take and make so many clutch shots.
Orlando Magic All-Star forward Rashard Lewis tested positive for a
testosterone-producing steroid and will be suspended without pay 10
games at the beginning of the season.
The steroid dehydroepiandrosterone is commonly known as DHEA.
"I hope this unintentional mistake will not reflect poorly on our team and its great character," Lewis said in a statement.
According to an NBA source, Lewis failed one drug test during the
playoffs last season and was so surprised by the outcome he asked to be
tested again during the Finals. Lewis also failed that test.
Rash-oid claims the banned substance was in an over-the-counter substance he took at the end of last season. Sure Rash-oid, whatever you say.
