The NBA announced today that Lindsey Hunter of the Detroit Pistons has been suspended without pay for 10 games for testing positive for phentermine, a substance banned by the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program. Hunter’s suspension will begin with tonight’s game between the Detroit Pistons and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Hunter just had one of his best games in a long time, scoring 20 points, including four three-pointers, in Detroit’s Monday loss to the Golden State Warriors. Via Inside Hoops

    I don’t think Lindsey was trying to lose weight. He said he made a bonehead mistake and took them by accident. If they made Viagra the same color as regular aspirin, I am sure most people would take it by accident too.

    Pistons should appeal, it’s an appetite suppressant, not steroids.
    This is stupid.

    Punishment too harsh, but at least we don’t have a media sideshow steroid problem round the association.

    It’s an amphetamine.. apart from decreased appetite, it also increases stamina and energy.
