3-point shots will increase, team defensive improvement all around and DH will have more time in the paint! These are a few things that will follow with the return of Lewis. He was suspended for the first ten games due to “violating” the NBA's Anti-Drug program. Lewis tested positive for the testosterone-producing steroid commonly referred to as DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone). This was part of a supplement he started taking late in the season and had no idea it contained a banned substance. Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith stated, "I do not think he was taking it as a performance enhancer, trying to get bigger, stronger, faster, or anything like that. We spend a lot of time trying to educate our guys on this stuff, but we have to do more. I still think the team, the players' union, the league, has to do more to let these guys know what they can and can't take.'' I have lost no respect for Lewis and think he handled the situation professional and constantly communicated that he is looking forward to returning to help his team! I am excited for Rashard’s return and look forward to the Orlando Magic truckin’ through this season with the RING in clear sight!!!
