    I'm not sure this is how PEDs work-- you take them for 2 weeks and get SUPERPOWER!

    PEDs can also heal injuries faster. It's not always about size and power.

    It is, however, exactly how sports "journalists" think they work.

    wow, explosive if true

    Don't the athletes know PEDs are hazardous for their long-term health and quite irreversible?

    Did Dwight take them too in the past? And is his body now paying for that? That's what I'm interested to know.

    Harden's off-games from time to time are at least signs that he's not using performance-enhancing stuff.

    Steroids work in 2 weeks?

    And he lost a lot of weight over the summer.

    Simmons can build a brand but his actual takes are dumb

    Was probably off the cycle in the summer due to stricter testing

    Why can't you be on PED for 2 weeks. PED's vary, a lot of athletes takes it for faster recovery, which allows for way more intense training, more energy, less likelihood to get injured etc.

    doesn't really work that way. For it to be the reason why he's playing so well, he would have to still be taking it (Test/HGH/orals) right now.

    Steroid users get skinny over the summer.

    Look at Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds.

    Some of those lines are REALLLY vague.

    "Naturally, all humans slow with age. But LeBron’s deceleration, a subject of much debate, many suggest came with some telltale signs of hormonal change that, frankly, happened in rapid succession. Shifting hairlines and increased head size are indicators of hormone boosting among players who we’ve discovered are users."

    So... "many suggest came with some telltale signs of hormonal change..."
    Then a separate line about "shifting hairlines and increased head size" that only links Lebron with hair loss, but implies something else?

    I personally hate Lebron, but I don't think hair loss is a definitive symptom of steroid use. That would mean that I was taking massive doses in college, and if you saw me, that would be easily disputable.

    Umm... the NBA wasn't testing for it. Of course players used it. Probably over half. No brainer.
