    I remember some people thought Mayo and Harden were comparable when he was in Dallas and Harden just started his Rockets career...

    well what kind of drug makes one more angry and agitated? It was that kind of drug most probably.

    Yea, he was a top 5 recruit coming out of high school. Then was #3 overall draft pick. It's gotta be hard him to see all these other players getting big $$$. Still made $38 million in his career

    More than that. He's suggesting a major star (stars?) use drugs.

    With amphetamines being on the list, it could be anything from fairly benign like adderall, or he could have a serious addiction/dependence on opiates. If he really fell down the stairs, then I could see that happening if he nodded out after taking a high dose of a host of any opioids (hydrocodone, oxy, heroin, etc.)

    Codeine? Wow. I wonder if there's a cut-off level for that, to separate abusers from those with a medical necessity?

    Just to be clear, crack is a form of cocaine

    He is suggesting that they have used PEDs (to distinguish from recreational drugs).

    Weak reach, unless he knows something (like he's suggested about LeBron and PEDs) - in which case he should just say it. But there aren't many NBA stars and there aren't many drug suspensions... I wouldn't call it luck, just typical odds.

    Guy put up 18.5 ppg on 44% shooting, as a rookie. He actually could have been a big star today if his work ethic and skills improved instead of taking a dive after year 2.
