I don't know, 10 games seems a bit much for a gambling incident.

the nba announced today that o.j. Mayo of the memphis grizzlies has been suspended without pay for 10 games for violating the terms of the nba/nbpa anti-drug program. His violation of the program involved a positive test for dehydroepiandrosterone (dhea).

Mayo's suspension will begin with tomorrow night's game between the grizzlies and the philadelphia 76ers.

DHEA isn't a steroid that is known for building muscle, or tied to physical performance for the most part. I haven't read them but there were studies that showed it had no effect on physical performance, lean muscle, or testosterone levels. So unless he's clueless about it's use, I think it was probably an accident.

Physical performance
DHEA supplements are sometimes used as muscle-building or performance-enhancing drugs by athletes. However, a randomized placebo-controlled trial found that DHEA supplementation had no (statistically significant) effect on lean body mass, strength, or testosterone levels.[21]

Jan 27, 2011 - O.J. Mayo has been suspended for 10 games for testing positive for a banned substance, the NBA announced Thursday. Mayo test positive for dehydroepiandrosterone, the league said in a release. That's the same substance that led to Rashard Lewis' suspension at the start of the 2009-10 season. Mayo's suspension will begin Friday.

It hasn't been a great season for Mayo, the No. 3 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. He was involved in fisticuffs with teammate Tony Allen in early January. A card game went wrong, and Mayo ended up with head wounds bad enough that he missed the Grizzlies' next game with what the team called "bronchitis."

Mayo has had a rough season on the court, too. Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins pushed the three-year guard to a bench role behind Allen, Xavier Henry and Sam Young, three far less heralded roleplayers. Mayo initially struggled, but has been performing better of late as the Grizzlies press for the final playoff berth in the loaded West.http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2011/1/27/1960057/o-j-mayo-suspended-ped

No he took an over the counter supplement. I dont like Mayo, but Sports in general goes WAY overboard when it comes to the banned substance list. There is no reason anything I buy at Rite Aid should be illegal to use in sports if I dont need a prescription.

His suspened for BS. The same as the 2 Williams brothers in Minnesota and the other players involved in that. Or the one guy that got suspeneded in Baseball because of a medicine in his hair regrowth medicine. If the FDA says it's cool for over the counter or a DR subscribes it how can a prefossional sports orginization suspend someone for it.

If a doctor or over the counter medicine got you fired or suspeneded at your job, you would have a law suit against either your employeer for firing you for medical reasons or the manufacture for putting something in it's product thats illegal or not list.

Mayo suspension is a bunch of BS. If he produces the product or reciet and it proves it would cause you to fail the test he should not be suspeneded.

I couldn't have said it better myself. If OJ was never hyped he would have gotten so much love, similarly to guys like Nick Young and DeMar Derozan.

The hype got him a bunch of haters wanting him to fail in the NBA.


He is going to brush the haters off, and rise top the top. Whenever he gets his head straight, it is just basketball, that's the mental approach he needs to have when he gets off his suspension and joins his new team ( via trade)

-OJ Mayo took a steroid.

-OJ Mayo cheated his teammates, the fans, and everyone else involved in the NBA.
