NBA Cutting Corners

With the basketball season approaching quickly, you will start seeing me blogging about the NBA. Basketball is by far my favorite sport. No other sport has the same drama, passion, and athleticism. Man, I love this game.

Where do you get the idea the nba is being ruined by steroids? This is news to me. What player has even ever been linked to steroids. None that I know of.Too many players in the NBA need steroids, or at least some protein shakes or something. It has a mnuch bigger problem with underdevoloped players than roid raging hulks.
