Under the supervision of a doctor of course. We have many senior citizens that can still ball into there late 30's. They work hard, stay in shape, and eat right. But that injury bug is a MF. Like the title says should the NBA make exceptions for older players who have prolonged injuries that would have already healed if they were younger?

No way. Anabolic steroids aren't supposed to be used for an injury plagued athlete under a doctor's supervision anyway. No legit doctor would agree to this. Plus you would basically be giving the older players the option of either using this harmful substance to get few extra years in, or don't and lose money, and I guarantee a lot of them wouldn't want to be put in that situation.

I hope you are not serious. That is the worst idea ever. Why don't we just raise the age limit in the NBA to 30 well were at it?

Terrible idea, you let some people take it, its only gonna be a matter of time before its justified for everyone. And no, steroids or HGH are not justified in any way.

To be honest I did a report for a college class about roids and if there properly taken they really are not that harmful.

Yeah and when you say properly that must include being taken for the proper medical indication, which does not include rejuvenating an older athletes career or, sports injuries of any kind...

I think a lot of NBA players are taking HGH. There is so much money at stake that everyone is looking for an advantage. When you have a lot of guys doing it, then they guys who are not doing it start thinking they have to just to keep the playing field level.

The NBA STILL doesn't test for HGH, which is pretty stupid since it can improve a player's game incredibly.

No and i think Nba should get more serious bout doping.
The way tests are conducted ( three times a year for rookies , just once a year at seasons begin for Vets) players can easily schedule taking roids and the rest of things in time that its eliminated from their body when the tests happen.

Why just for older players? I don't understand your logic at all and no players should ever be allowed to use HGH ever.

you guys do realize that they could all already be on HGH anyway? and even if the NBA got serious about doping theres no way that any players association would allow blood testing at a pro level which is the only way, as of now, to test for HGH. the only exception is MiLB which started it a year or so ago i believe but thats still a long ways away from having the testing in MLB, NFL, or whatever.

If you need to take HGH to play then you should be forced to retire....

1. Hgh isn't an anabolic steroid
2. There are plenty of legit doctors who prescribe it
3. When done under medical supervision it's pretty safe

Sorry I misread the title. Yeah you're right HGH isn't a steroid, but there aren't many doctors who (legitimately) prescribe HGH to athletes. It mostly gets used in growth disorders in children and adolescents. What statistics are you using that it's "pretty safe". Yeah it's pretty safe when you use it for what it's indicated for, when someone has low GH and you use it to supplement the low levels. I don't think there has been many reputable studies done on using it to enhance athletic performance. Either way this thread is ridiculous.

This lets me know you shouldnt have an opinion on the matter. You dont even know that HGH is completely different than your typical anabolic steroid. So just keep out of this one.

Yes they should allow it. They also should allow you to bring guns into the locker room and maybe even shoot up the opposition! that way you have a clear path to the basket on every play.

I corrected myself. Oh and if there are any reputable studies from a reputable medical journal please pm it to me if you're so smart and on top of this whole issue.

How about this?

Each team gets one player who is allowed to sit in the upper deck with a sniper rifle and 10 bullets. 3 may be used on the opposing sniper, and a maximum of 2 attempts at each individual player.
