Thien is a potter by trade, one who hails from the village of Bat Trang on the outskirts of Hanoi, Vietnam. What his hands have been shaping during the last few weeks and months are small porcelain figurines that he sells for about $1.30 apiece. It's not the price that makes them hot sellers, it's the subject.

Memphis Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo says he believes an "energy drink" he bought at a gas station contained the substance that led to his 10-game suspension for violating the NBA's drug policy. "I didn't know it had any bad substances in it, and it caused a 10-game suspension," Mayo said Saturday at the team's practice court. "It's not like I went to a GNC and got some Muscle Armor or ordered some supplement off the Internet or anything. It was just a local gas station that kind of got me hemmed up. " The NBA suspended Mayo on Thursday for testing positive for dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)
