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
well, that stinks. didnt he know that phentermine is banned! i dont see him going out of his way to take a banned substance. lindsey always seems like such a nice guy…… oh well, we HAVE TO beat the cavs tonight.
awwwww mannnnnn !! he was heating up too !!
what does that stuff do anyways????
weight loss pill lol. so what? the guy wanted to lose a couple pounds! haha oh well
ohh mannn thats REALLL harmful
its almost CHEATING in some ways !!!
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.
it’s a clean , nice upper
you dont lose your focus or get jittery as , say , with adderal
