TMZ is reporting this morning that drugs are a big problem throughout the NBA. And that pot is “ubiquitous” in the sport.
The report came on the heels of marriage troubles between Khloe Kardashian and NBA player Lamar Odom, who may or may not be abusing crack cocaine.
The issue, according to the report, is that the NBA is only allowed to test players four times during the season. After the fourth test, according to an unnamed player quoted in the report, “It’s Christmas Day. We can take whatever we want.”
Another current and famous player estimates 30% of his fellow NBAers use hard drugs -- including Molly, Ecstasy, and Lean (Sprite and codeine cough syrup) -- at some point during the season. He says he's never been aware of anyone doing cocaine during the season.
The pot use, while prevalent, is also done in moderation with little impact on performance.
On Sunday's episode of SportsCenter's "Sunday Conversation" on ESPN, Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer was adamant that pot was the biggest issue in football today. Do you think maybe he needs to study up on Molly and Lean as well?
