Ahaha Hedo seems to be the last person I would suspect of taking PEDs. If he is it definitely doesn't show anywhere

And Stern was just talking about HGH testing coming to the NBA next year.

I don't follow college ball but Nerlens Noel (the projected #1 pick next year) also suffered a torn ACL last night.

Is it the shoes? I originally thought it was the start of heavy Chinese influenced shoes being introduced to the market, but all the pro players you mentioned are wearing either nike's or adidas

I don't think it's the shoes. I'm no doctor but when you see the injury, like on Rose and LouWill, they are just in their usual movement, it's not like they made a quick stop and the traction on the shoes made their knees buckle or something. And the tech on shoes these days are much better so cushioning and padding can't be the problem.


Where's the threads resident doctor?

hedo has got some bulk on him... he may not be super ripped but he's pretty yoked.




the thing with anabolic steroids is that is a shortcut to increased strength with regular workouts - so maybe hedo was just being lazy and using it so he wouldn't have to work as hard to get back to his early 20's level fitness/strength.

currently the NBA has a pretty relaxed PED testing program: only urine and with transparent scheduled testing.

the newer better testing method is to get a baseline testosterone level upon entry into the league then do random blood testing throughout the year(s) any fluctuations will be red-flagged and further tested.

my guess? I think the current NBA maybe half of the players are probably using something like HGH and topical testosterone with the relaxed testing its to your benefit to use PEDs. Shoe technology is a ruse. Orthopedic surgery modalities and more importantly rehab regiments are a lot better so that can help, but more so with longevity of career.
