Wednesday, May 18, 2005NBA Dribbles Through Congress
Juan Dixon was the only NBA player to testify in front of Congress, presumably because he finished last in the offseason NBA Live tournament. And today NBA chief David Stern said he'll double the punishment on steroids and do a lifetime ban after the third offense.
However, someone should've told Congress that steroids isn't the drug issue in the NBA, it's marijuana. If Congress proposed a grass-feed association, that would definitely get someone's attention. Imagine Lamar Odom being pressed on whether or not he's smoked weed. His answers would make Mark McGwire's seem somewhat honest.
