    Nope, I could care less. If anyone couldn't tell that McGwire was on the juice they are idiots. Baseball turned a blind eye to the whole situation, due to the record profits of their sport. He has never denied it and refused to address it head on. The Steroid era is aptly named. I'm just not sure how to view it in the overall history of the game.

    Nope, baseball should allow steroids. It's better that way. A game that can be played drunk is boring as it gets without home-runs.

    ^Agreed.

    Look at how well basketball is doing with steroids now, too:

    I'll give Lebron the benefit of the doubt just like the rest of the NBA. He had the body of a grown man at age 17 when he was puttin up 40-50 a game in HS. His neck isn't swollen up like alot roid users... Basketball is more about accuracy, rhythm and speed and steroids dont always help with that. I'm not saying that HGH isnt being used because it isnt tested for because Im certain that someone in the NBA is using it to heal from injuries... But doing roids in basketball just seems like it could potentially be counterproductive. In baseball, when you are the plate, as long as you hit the crap outta the ball and have a good eye and decent technique (some batters are successful with obscure batting techniques) you will do well. Think about how many times a baseball would have been hit potentially 30-40 feet less if these guys hadnt have been on roids. We woulda seen the same numbers as we did in the 70s and 80s where home run hitters were batting .205 and many of these so called dynasties may have never happened.

    Just an FYI, NBA is losing money (well the teams are, salary cap dropped)

    The only HS athlete that changed that much would be Dwight Howard- another guy that looks roided out of his mind.


    This "freak of nature" excuse doesn't work. He's Sammy Sosa playing basketball. The huge head, the huge jaw, the acne... he's the posterchild for roids.

    Now most these other guys just simply grew in to their body size. Kobe is the hardest working player in the nba and only 2 inches shorter than Lebron- but he's not even close to the same mass. No one in the NBA is nor never has been.

    Lebron also has "soft" muscle. The same kind Sosa had. The same kind Barry Bonds had. The same kind McGuire had. The same kind every typical steroid abusing athlete had. He also shares the same huge Melon that these guys have.



    I understand kids becoming men. Naturally they get more muscular. But Lebron? He's bigger than most NFL players while playing one of the most fast paced sports possible that'd be cardio almost every night of the week.

    Doesn't add up.

    If Lebron is just a "freak" then Demarcus Cousins is going to look like this guy by time he's 27:

    Duece, if you think Lebron is on the Juice, then you MUST think Dhoward is juicin' too. He's bigger than LeBron and claims he eats a box of Honey Buns everyday.
