"If a player tests positive for HGH, he will be suspended 20 games for his first violation and 45 games for his second violation, and he will be dismissed and disqualified from the NBA for his third violation".

There's probably some advanced profit statistic that was agreed upon to disqualify certain players from even being eligible for testing :laugh2:

LeBron will be the focus of this thread I am sure.

Curious, how many 16 year olds did any of you play against that were 6'6", 220 lbs, with 5% badyfat?

If there's one guy we all know hasn't been taking any HGH it's KD. Dude should get a free pass with his toothpick arms lol

We are reminded of the Finals last year when the "greatest athlete the world has ever known" was the only guy who was unable to endure the high temps.

Of course they start doing this once Lebron and Wade stop talking it

There's a few signs you can look for, abnormal strength and explosiveness, early balding, increase of the size of the bone area above the eyebrows, large muscles for a basketball player, deep voice... Hmm? Lol

Didn't LeBron and Melo trim down last off-season? Probably knew this was coming.

A few....it's the size "combined" with the speed snd quickness that makes him
an anomaly. I always say being built like a bull isn't "all that" special. But being built like a bull and moving like a gazelle makes you a freak of nature.


But your point is still valid he's always been a freak. So I highly doubt he would need "performance" enhancing drugs. But just to heal an injure and get back healthy? Maybe.

The pressures bestowed upon him as a youngster can lead a impressionable and talented kid who is eager to prove himself to do drastic things, even extreme measures such as peds to live up to and exceed the expectations lol.

I'm genuinely starting to think certain people's obsessions with players is getting unhealthy :laugh2:

I'd put more money on Wade having taken them than Lebron. All you have to do is look at Wade from his rookie year to now. He looks like a ****ing chipmunk.

I honestly wouldnt doubt Wade did/is doing it, but the messed up part is that it literally is not helping him if he is. But if he goes from like 62 games a year to like 30 then he is really a lot worse than we all think.
