Technology really is an amazing thing. What was but a dream years ago is reality today. The impossible becomes possible. Everyday, new technology is invented that nobody thought was possible. It is only a matter of time before limbs can be replaced with machinery that gives an advantage. Batman had the robotic leg brace that gave him an increase in strength in the latest batman movie.

If artificial limbs became this advanced in the future, would you allow a player who posses it to play? Steroids give a competitive advantage in baseball, and they are banned. Would an equal competitive advantage in this case get banned? I am not talking cyborgs as in terminator, just a human that posses robot like qualities due to artificial limbs.

I am befuddled by this question.

Pretty sure Darth Vader will never be allowed to play in the NBA...

Of course they would be. Yeah, Tech Gadgetson may not be an NBA caliber player, but to think he can't sit and the three point line and be a spot up shooter? And some MechBA players could probably average 10 pts and 5-6 assists, it's ridiculous, I mean there are scrubs in the NBA like Matt Bonner and Theo Ratliff!

If they allow aliens in the NBA, I don't see why cyborgs couldn't play.

The season can't start soon enough.

I actually had this thought the other day, what if scientists constructed a robot that runs down the court, and has a target aiming system that has the capability to measure the distance and divide it by the velocity(or something like that) and then make a perfect shot every time? Technology is crazy and to answer this thread, yes it is possible and at that, some players are already using artificial limbs without anyone knowing. Technology is growing way too fast...

I wrote a long and complicated response to this. Then deleted it. I don't want to encourage this behavior.

Get me some sweet robotic legs and just jump across the court for Dunks. It's a risky operation but I think it will be worth it!

Why not? I'd love to see Bender in a New York Uniform. Just hopefully, they all don't rust at the same time.

this is providing zero basketball discussion.
