Many of you surely must have heard or read about the steroid use, by NBA legend Lebron James. Officially, he has agreed that due to some medical condition, he has used testosterone. Is this the reason of his stunning performance in basketball court?
As a matter of fact, no one was ever penalized for drug abuse in the basketball game. It is a known fact that most of the professional sportsmen are using steroids for their performance improvement for the last 50 years.
It started with Russian bodybuilders during 1954, when they used Dianabol. Recently Lance Armstrong, the cyclist, has also admitted that he has been using steroids to excel in his sports. Usually, NBA also tests sportsmen for drug use, but when the name of big stars like Lebron James came up, they were not as judicious as IOC or WADA.
Did he really use steroids?
Some of the media reports suggest that Lebron James has certainly used drugs, as there are plenty of circumstantial evidences that can be found. Many of his fans observed his receding hairline, which is a sign of using steroids like Anadrol, Deca Durabolin,Dianabol or Testosterone.
If it is a fact, then he is certainly not the first and also not the last user of this steroids. Many other big names like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barry Bonds, Ben Johnson, Hulk Hogan and Sylvester Stallone were also associated with steroid use.
Steroid use in current days is so common that that it is not at all a surprise if Lebron James also must be using steroids to excel in the court. There is a murmur within pro steroid lobby within sports that nothing great can be achieved without use of steroids. The testimony of athletes like Lebron James can certainly make a lot of difference about the views of sports authority.
If you ponder about his early life we can find that there were lots of struggles during his childhood. He was born in 1984 from a 16 year old single mother. He had to move from one place to other to find a stable life. Finally her mother sent her with a local football coach. As a 9 year old child, he was introduced to basketball. There he was penalized for violating rules during his early career but managed to get out of it.
That shows that he learnt to manipulate things during early age and in the similar way must have managed to get out of steroid use allegation too.
