It's basically a lame over the counter supplement that is not proven to do anything...

Most athletes who use performance enhancers use it to recover more quickly from injury. So they can come in all shapes and sizes.

Yeah I guess the original test was kept a secret. I'm really surprised he was using an illegal substance.

Like someone said, the supplement industry is unregulated so they don't necessarily list everything that's in the supplement. There was some study awhile back that showed a fairly large % of supplements were tainted with banned substances that weren't listed on the packages.

Probably an accident.







No NBA player should ever fail a drug test... because these drug tests are scheduled months in advance.

So the only reason DHEA is legally sold over the counter was because a senator from Utah, Orren Hatch, threatened to torpedo some anti-steroid bill if they didn't write in an exemption for DHEA. Why would he do that? Because his son is a lobbyist for the supplement industry, and they wanted to keep DHEA OTC. [claydavis]Shiiiiiiiit.[/claydavis]

But the thing with LeBron is he look like a freaking man before he came in the NBA his rookie season.



See...

Look at how KG and Kobe looked like straight out of High School...





They still look like kids...took them time to bulk up for the NBA.

But Bron looked ready straight out of High School....that sh*t ain't normal.

LOL...What kind of joke is the NBA making??

What kind of nonsense is this?? The guy tested positive for DHEA, which is a supplement you can pick up at GNC or Vitamin Shoppe; it enhances immune function and adrenal gland hormone production (along with cortisol). I have absolutely NO idea why this supplement would be banned by the NBA. Must be some kind of joke.
