Juan Dixon hopes to return to Spain
"I'm a supplement junkie," Dixon said on Sunday at the Petersen Events Center, where he was watching his younger brother, Jermaine, and the University of Pittsburgh play Villanova. "I like to try different things and I made the mistake of not doing the research and making sure it was legal." But the former Maryland guard said the notion that he was intentionally taking steroids is laughable.
"Steroids? C'mon," he said. "I was 145 pounds in high school, 160 in college and I'm up to maybe 175 now. Look at me. Be serious. People can say whatever they want, but I've played the same way my whole life."
Dixon, who was suspended indefinitely by FIBA after the positive test, said he will have a B sample test on Monday and expects to receive the results of that within the next week. "If it's OK, I should be good to go," he said. Dixon led Maryland to the 2002 national championship and played with Portland, Toronto, Detroit and Washington in the NBA.
