Ray Allen gave his thoughts about the situation to the Boston Globe about how Lewis should've been suspended during the playoffs and that his Celtics would've been in the NBA Finals (even though they were disposed of in the Conference Semifinals). "When did he take the drug test? Because if he took the drug test during our series, we're supposed to be playing in the conference finals."

Yeah...why is he complaining now. Sour grapes still?

And I'm 99% sure that he tested positive in the off-season. I mean, he was suspended all the way in August.

And I can get childish and say this. The Celtics wouldn't have beaten the Bulls if Rondo was suspended (like he obviously should have been) for throwing a punch at Brad Miller.

Good call on Rondo. Ray can't talk about the "What if's" when the Rondo play should have been a suspention.

Sounds like his bitterness followed over into this season, he must not have like how Rashard was dropping 3's the other night in Boston, and by the I thought Garnett was going to whoop us in the first game this year?? He is back and the Magic were down Jameer as well, and they still won!

I said "punch" first. It definitely wasn't a punch...don't know why I said it was. It was a cheap shot to the face...but it was open handed.

Original source:http://www.boston.com/sports/basketball/articles/2009/11/22/after_taking_supplement_lewis_took_his_medicine_in _the_form_of_suspension?mode=PF


Former Sonics teammate Ray Allen was stunned to hear the news about his close friend.

“I spent enough time around him to know that Rashard is a good dude and he wouldn’t do anything to harm himself or his body,’’ Allen said. “It’s a matter of being responsible and definitely know what we’re taking, whether we are trying to get an edge or trying to get rest.

“A lot of guys take sleeping pills or some type of medicine to go to sleep at nighttime. You never know whether something in that could be on the banned substance list. You have to be a little more careful.’’


“When did he take the drug test?’’ Allen asked. “Because if he took the drug test during our series, we’re supposed to be playing in the conference finals.’’

If anything, Allen was being too nice because he was friends with Lewis. It's almost a guarantee that Lewis was knowingly taking steroids and thought he'd get away with it.

Yah, Rose stuffed Rondo.....

Remember when Rose and the Bulls went home after the first round, that was part of Rondo's best postseason ever too

I thought he was complaining about the suspension for Rashard, since they were both from Seattle.

Big deal Rashard took a supplement from a nutrition store, Rondo should have been suspended for throwing Hinrich into the scorers table or slapping Brad Miller in the face to win that game, not to mention that the Celts got so many lopsided calls against the Magic in one of the worst officiated postseasons ever.

Ray Allen is just pist that KG can't jump anymore, Rasheed throws up garbage all night, he himself gets no respect from anyone and is playing terrible, and Rondo is shooting 33% from the foul line. THat is what he should be thinking about

Is that block on Rondo that rose made the only play that happend last year? Because Rondo made a hell of a lot more than one play. If you want to talk about who won the battle between rose and Rondo go look at the statbook. Who won the series againe??????

Not fair. Rondo had 2 other Hall of Fame players on his team that were allstars last year. Celtics Won 62 games to Chicago's 41. Just to go 7 was an accomplishment in itself.

It also leads to more assists for Rondo. Rondo didn't have anyone on his team that dominated th ball as much as Ben Gordan.
