Why is this shocking? An undersized guard trying to hang on to a professional career on the far side of 30? He's the prototype of the person who should take this gamble (if you think that taking PEDs can be a rational decision.)

And unfortunately for him, he didn't grow up in an environment that discouraged drug use.

Not saying that this is the reason he did it...what you said is the likely reason...Just saying that he didn't have people around him discouraging this as he was growing up.

I think disappointing is a more valid word than shocking.

These are very different things. I don't see any connection at all.

In fact, if anything, this is the opposite of destructive recreational drug use.

My guess is that Dixon was working hard to get in shape to make the best of the situation, hoped the drug would cycle out of his system by the time he arrived, and it didn't.

You are missing my point completely but that's ok...I know how you tend to react to all of these things, so its not worth my time or effort to go further..Let me just say that i agree that the drug use in and of itself isn't the same..We agree.

Do you guys think he did this while at Maryland? If he didn't its not that big of a deal to me... I don't really care about professional basketball anyways. It would be a shame that he felt he had to do something like that, but at least it wouldn't tarnish his reputation as Terp.

No.

If he did, he had his hands on some weak sauce.

Seriously, he's trying to extend his window of making six figures. That's it. It doesn't cast a shadow on anything.

So then you believe that a baseball players only did roids when they were caught, not before?

Why couldn't Dixon have been on roids to put himself in position to get that initial contract?
