Everyone wants to know...did NBA bad boy Ricky Davis sit for a steroids suspension? (at least we want to know)
Davis, a former Iowa Hawkeye player we knew since he was in high school, sat out a number of games for the Los Angeles Clippers after violating the leagues 'anti-drug policy'. Was the suspension steroids or PED related?
The injury struggles of the Clippers have been the major story for this team over (at least) the last 12 games or so. Playing without Baron Davis, Zach Randolph, and Chris Kaman, it's no surprise that L.A.'s losing streak has reached that number, and with the team being so depleted, we also shouldn't be surprised that they'd welcome back someone like Ricky Davis.
Davis made his return to the floor Wednesday night against the Hawks, and played like someone who hadn't been on the NBA hardwood since November 22nd -- which he hadn't. Besides the fact that Davis was recovering from a knee injury, he also had to serve a five-game suspension for violating the league's anti-drug policy.
Inquiring minds are dying somewhat interested to know exactly what substance led to the violation and suspension. One of L.A.'s few reporters on the scene got the answer:
When asked if he'd tested positive for a banned substance or merely failed to comply with the league's drug program (either by missing a test or some other violation) Davis indicated that he'd tested positive but added, "No steroids.''
And how did Davis perform on his comeback?
Just maybe Ricky should do steroids...brain steroids. From the photo on the right, doesn't look like Ricky needs more male steroids...
