The Baltimore Sun has the Best Steroid Story

5/18/2005

Some highlights from reporter Jeff Barker:

The committee invited Dixon, the former Maryland star and Baltimore native, and several other NBA players not because they are suspected of using performance-boosting substances, but rather because they have anti-steroids messages to convey... Although Marin did not disclose the names of others invited, another official said Orlando Magic forward Grant Hill is among those the panel has considered...
Also scheduled to appear are NBA commissioner David Stern and Keith Jones, a Houston Rockets trainer... The NBA suspends players five games for an initial infraction. Only three players - Don MacLean, Matt Geiger, Soumaila Samake - are known to have tested positive.
