Yes, even The Mothership gets it wrong sometimes. The WWL's print
apparatus asked a group of NBA players to assess the influence of PEDs
in their sport: 1 being the lowest, 10 the highest.
"Seven. It's huge and I think we need a level playing field, where
nobody has that advantage over the next person," Rose said. According
to the magazine.
But 2.5 hours before Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, Rose and the Chicago Bulls released a statement about the response, calling out it's credibility.
The statement reads:
"Regarding the quote attributed to me in ESPN The Magazine, I do not
recall making the statement nor do I recall the question being asked.
If that was my response to any question, I clearly misunderstood what
was asked of me. But, let me be clear, I do not believe there is a
performance-enhancing drug problem in the NBA."
So there you go. Let the fallout in Bristol begin.
