Killer article. If you still think the NBA isn't corrupt and not protecting their drug cheating players after reading this, then you have mental problems.

"Question: Should the NBA run its own testing program, or bring in outsiders?

The argument against a league policing itself is the argument against Wall Street or any other business policing itself -- there’s questionable incentive to catch anybody. Positive tests are not generally seen as being in the league’s interests, so how hard a program would be created?"

HAHAHAHA! The NBA itself are the ones who test THEIR players! WHAT A JOKE! Why would they bust and suspend their own players?! AS IF THEY WOULD BUST LEBRON, WADE, HOWARD, IBAKA, ROSE, GRIFFIN, NATE ROBINSON... FOR PEDs!

DEA, WTF ARE YOU DOING?! DO SOMETHING!

"In the NBA, the person in that position in 2005 was then-medical director Lloyd Baccus, M.D.
In testimony before Congress, he made a statement that raised eyebrows in anti-doping circles but has not received much public attention:
•In six years, Baccus testified, 23 NBA players tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
•All but three of those results were, at Baccus’ discretion, discarded."

"Also revealing, from an enforcement point of view, was the mentality of the NBA’s then-top drug cop:“These results do not surprise me,” Baccus continued.“The physical traits that NBA players rely on -- particularly quickness, agility and dexterity -- do not appear to be assisted, and may even be hindered, by the use of these substances.”

Baccus essentially said he did not think performance-enhancing drugs would help in the NBA, and had thrown out nearly 90 percent of the league’s positive tests in six years."

Another corrupt SOB! HOW CAN PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUGS -NOT- IMPROVE AN ATHLETES PERFORMANCE!

"Meanwhile, the major new doping concern is human growth hormone (HGH)-- which the leagues have banned, but don’t test for, all the while telling Congress and others that they’ll start testing for it when there’s a reliable urine test. Meanwhile, in the Olympics and in other sports, the blood test for human growth hormone is in heavy use."

THEY DON'T EVEN TEST FOR HGH!!!!!

I'm telling you now, I'd say at LEAST 90% of NBA players are doping and close to 100% of the teams starting-5 (players) are.

I have heard from a reliable source that David Beckham is on HGH. Now compare his build to Dwight Howards. COME ON, PEOPLE! WAKE UP! THEY ARE ON HEAPS OF DRUGS!

"“It took the drug-testing authorities several years and millions of dollars to develop a test to detect EPO in urine and blood. It took Ferrari about five minutes to figure out how to evade it,” Hamilton wrote in "The Secret Race,” referring to famed doping doctor Michele Ferrari.

The solution was to take tiny doses that cleared the system quickly. It works for several different substances. Cyclists who testified against Armstrong explained that one of their preferred methods was to take banned substances like testosterone or the blood booster EPO or in small doses in the evening. The body would process and expel the banned supplements in a matter of hours. By morning, cyclists had nothing to fear from testers.

Drug testers in cycling then, and in the NBA now, resolved that testing in the middle of the night was both rude and invasive. Testers would politely wait until morning, which seems reasonable -- except that if you give players eight or 10 hours of test-free time every day, you give microdosers freedom to dope at will."

There's no "evidence" that Ronnie Coleman juiced too. Does that mean he didn't use performance enhancing drugs? LOL
