Juan Dixon tests positive for steroids in Europe, is suspended

From the Associated Press:

MALAGA, Spain — Former NBA player Juan Dixon has tested positive for the steroid nandrolone, his Spanish team Unicaja announced.

The player gave the drug test in Greece in November, before he joined the Malaga-based team, Unicaja said on its Web site.

Dixon was informed of the positive result several days ago and the International Basketball Federation decided to suspend him on Friday. His suspension is indefinite until further notice.

Dixon, who won an NCAA championship with Maryland in 2002, played for Washington, Portland, Toronto and Detroit in the NBA.

Through a team spokesman, Maryland Coach Gary Williams had no comment after Saturday's loss at Duke.

Get rid of the rule banning steroids/ performance enhancement drugs. It's their bodies let them do to them what they want.

The public doesn't care what happens to athletes without the drugs; there's no reason to think they would care any more about the athletes using drugs.

American value 101: Winning is everything.
