Human growth hormones aren't necessarily widely used in the league as players try to stay lean with all the running that takes place, but for those who are injured and looking to get back on the court quicker, it could be used to speed up the healing process and Stern
is looking to remove it from the game.
The World Anti-Doping Association has had concerns with the league and the process they use to test players, but the Commissioner is looking to change that with year-round testing of all performance enhancing drugs, including HGH.
With so many scandals all across the globe there is little doubt that the league has a few individuals trying to use these drugs to perform at a higher level, but Stern and the NBA
have done a good job over the last few years and with a new agreement with the players in the next few months, the league could have one of the best drug detection systems in the world in place, making the fans, players, and league owners more confident about the product being played on the court.
