Hopefully it's just weed. Regardless it's kind of embarrassing

Well, he did "put on" all that muscle over the summer when he was away from the team and during SL!!

And he's been playing more aggressively lately (roid rage).

just an FYI - I read through the CBA. This isn't weed or PEDs. Those suspensions are fixed in nature. This is hard drugs - opiates, MDMA, etc.

Geez, not what I wanted to hear. If it was weed he shouldn't even be suspended unless he was selling pounds. The PED's I could see based on his weight gain and improved play. Hard drugs, huh, not good.

I think Adderall is actually classified as a PED but the NBA doesn't publish the banned substance lists to the general public so I can only speculate.

Doubt it's considered one of the hard drugs tho

Charlotte Hornets

STATEMENT: We are disappointed in Malik’s decision-making that resulted in his suspension. As an organization, we do not condone his behavior. However, we are committed to supporting Malik during this time.

Basketball comes second when it comes to a person facing their inner demons. Assuming it's something other than weed

Literally.

Stupid because he should know the rules (likely does know but was careless over all star break). But also stupid because weed shouldn’t be treated like it’s a dangerous drug warranting pro sports suspensions. Hopefully he can bounce back from this before the seasons over.

Looks like I'm going to have to go on my "Marijuana laws are just indicators of cultural bias" soapbox.

Tbh, you have super to be dumb, extremely unlucky, or actually an addict / on the road to becoming one to get popped for anything except weed/peds. Almost all the "hard ****" is out of your system in a day or two. (If not less.)

Weed staying in your system for so long is very much the outlier.
