You have to be really naive, if you think the NBA is "clean" ...

i am sure there are a few guys on roids but I am guessing it is a very small percentage. It just isn't part of the NBA culture. Now football on the other hand... the NFL is running rampid with steroid use and has for the past 30 years. I am guessing over 90% of players in the NFL are on roids. Maybe like 30% of the MLB and less than 5% of the NBA.

There are definately steroids in the Nba.
First of all, if anyone has done any bodybuilding or knows the specifics of the field, knows that keeping your weight and muscle is very hard work. In addition to constantly eating right you need to work out in the gym. Now, an nba season is 82games + playoffs. That means the body will become very tired, some players forfeit on going to the gym to avoid tiredness. That should mean that you start to loose muscle. But it's fascinating how players have the same frame after the season, that they had in the beginning of the season.. Steroids are a very effective tool for keeping your muscle.

Secondly, i mean, there are some freaks. D12 for example. With one freaking summer, he went from skinny to monster. Now that freaking amazing. Specialists have said, that the maximum amount of muscle you can add in one month is about 3 KG. And thats when you have done everything perfectly. But how often do people do thing in the absolute perfect circumstances? I really doubt D12 put on his weight with using just legal supplements (like creatine, protein).

Well, and also. Dwyane Wades business partner accused him of usin roids. So go figure.

im pretty sure there are, but not as much as the nfl and the mlb. the game of basketball you dont need steroids, its about athelitism, and skill. most of the time you cant rely on your body to dominate. it doesnt help you score baskets . i wouldnt be suprised if dwight was caught haha jp

Hmm. how do you define athleticism?? Isnt it power? The power to jump, speed, agility. All of those things can be worked on in the gym, in which steroids have an impact in your leg strength etc. For example, widely and the nr.1 leg excercise - Squat -, improving your squat in the correct number of repetitions ( 1-6 reps speed,power ; 8-12 - muscle) makes you jump higher, quicker first step.. Steroids make strength-wise gains bigger.
So steroids have a very strong connection with Athleticism contrary to your post

The NFLs steroid policies and testing are on par with the Olympics. If 90% of the NFL was using steroids. You would see far more positive test results. In the 90s and early 2000s I would guess 75-80% of baseball was using steroids. Now its most likely around the 30% you mentioned and 5% sounds about right for the NBA.

isnt creatine considered a PED?

and my persnal opinion, i think Lebron is on something. this guy is a freak. His body was more developed when he was drafted than players who were in the league for 5-10 years.

i just have a hard time believing thatbody was accomplished through meat and vegatables.

Not to mention if you use low dosages of steroids, it prevents injuries, cuts fat and maintains shape instead of building muscles. People always automatically point out the "extra large" guys (obvious roiders) but don't even understand the science behind it... the skinny guys are just as likely to be using it to prevent injury and to stay in shape.

i hope not. steroids has ruined this entire decade of baseball, i hope it doesn't ruin basketball. i don't think steroids is necessary for basketball anyway, maybe for big guys. in basketball you rely more on speed and skill that just sheer power like in batting for baseball or fighting for MMA.

There definatly could be roids in the NBA, but i know one thing if a guy was on roids it would definatly mess up his shot. So if theres a guy on roid it would definatly be a bad shooter. Big Ben, Shaq even....idk....soo definatly not a pure shooter

It happens in all Sports. There may not be a specific player that we know about, but I am sure that it is happening in the NBA at least with a few players.

how can you doubt that
'

when stern allowed Nba players (american or foreginer) to compete on olympics he made a contract with fiba and IOC in wich nba players WOULD NOT PASS doping tests during olympics.

why woud he do that if they were clean?


also should i pint to massive unqatural freaks like dwight or lebron or to skinny as hell when ntering the league bargnanim pau gasol or dirk and how do they look now
? or drew bynum there are much more examples
