Rashard Lewis Suspended 10 Games Without Pay!

The Real BallerContributor IAugust 6, 2009

As seen by the associated press Rashard Lewis has been suspended for 10 games immediately starting the 09-10 season. Lewis violated the Orlando Magic's anti-drug policy and said in these statements

 “First and foremost I take full responsibility for the situation and accept the corresponding penalty.


Toward the end of the season I took an over-the-counter supplement which at the time I did not realize included a substance banned by the NBA

I apologize to Magic fans, my teammates and this organization for not doing the research that should come with good judgment. 

I hope this unintentional mistake will not reflect poorly on our team and its great character. 

I hope every athlete can learn from my mistake that supplements, no matter how innocent they seem, should only be taken after consulting an expert in the field.” 

Blah, Blah, Blah damn right he knew but took it anyways.
