    Whoa, assumed they already had it. Kind of a joke that they haven't. Stern's priorities are out of whack, weak move that he's looking to institute it as he retires.

    Should this give the Rockets pause before signing their next "star asset"? It would suck to hand out a huge contract this offseason to a muscled out big only to see their game go in the toilet once they can't juice any longer.

    He was 6-8 240 coming out of HS. If he has been doing it why is there no one with size speed combination of him.

    Statistical logic would state every team has at least one user on it. Hmmm which of our beloved Rockets would you bet your money on?

    Won't make much of a difference. If HGH use has been widespread, guys will just stop taking it before testing starts. the ones that have been using it for years will keep most of the physical gains they have made or find the next thing to use that is either undetectable or not tested for.

    Beverley had rood rage the other night!

    On a serious note, I suspect that way more than 1 player per team is on this stuff.

    I would have done the same thing if I were him. No need to taint (hehe) the game while he's the Commish. Let the next guy deal with it.

    Yeah that's nice and all, but the NBA really need to tackle players talking back to the refs. We can't have players show emotion now, can we... this is much more important than HGH.

    Just recently an Australian sports team was busted for HGH, and that sports is no where as big as basketball (and the teams are no where near as big or rich as the NBA teams). Would not surprise me if the majority of players were on HGH to be honest.
