NFL, Union Could Reach Deal For HGH Testing Prior To Start Of This Season
Published March 11, 2013
KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES: TRUE HOOPS’ Henry Abbott cited sources as saying that the NBA is “due to start testing players” for HGH. Abbott: “Hats off to all involved for taking a step in the right direction.” The lack of an HGH test “has finally become embarrassing to the league and union.” However, the assumption has to be “that the most sophisticated athletes in all sports will quickly master this test as they have so many others.” Abbott: “I'm very glad the NBA has instituted this test, just as I'll be shocked if a lot of NBA players fail it -- and that's not because I assume they aren't using HGH” (ESPN.com, 3/8).
