Hedo Turkoglu Suspended 20 Games for Violating NBA’s Drug Policy

The NBA has suspended Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu for 20 games. They say Turkoglu tested positive for methenolone (an anabolic steroid.) Here’s the tersely-worded press release: “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, it was announced today by the NBA. Turkoglu’s suspension will begin tonight when the Magic play host to the Atlanta Hawks at Amway Center.”

    Did they steroids turn him into Lebron circa 02/01/2013-02/12/2013. If so, then I’m ok with this.

    Damn! I thought steroids make you stronger, faster and just better….WTF happened to Hedo?

    If somebody came up to me and said “Guess which NBA player just got suspended for taking steroids?”, I would think about it for a couple of seconds, and then say “Hedo Turkoglu,” and then we’d both laugh so hard that we’d make that snorting sound with our noses.

    All of these professional athletes have the same
    excuse. “I didn’t know I was taking a banned
    substance.” Read more at: http://the-nba-insider.blogspot.com
