I was just thinking, the Olympics tests for every single PHD out there. If an athlete is on such drugs, and they stop, they lose alot of weight. It's common knowledge. Anyway, years passed and I thought nothing of it. Kobe gained his weight back and all was good, until a couple of days ago. It has been reported here and everywhere that Kobe has lost 16 lbs going into this years Olympics. I started thing again. WTF? Kobe always seems to have the same weight every year, if not more, before every NBA season, but when it comes to the Olympics, he all of a sudden loses a significant amount of weight. It's not 5 or 6 lbs mind you, it's 16 to 20 lbs respectively.
The bottom line is that the Olympics do drug tests far more advanced than the NBA does. The NBA has really never been into testing for steroids or HGH. To me, if an athlete is on HGH and wants to play in the Olympics, they better stop using, because they will be caught. What happens when someone stops such drugs? They lose weight. What has Kobe done before the last 2 Olympics that he has never done prior to any NBA season? He lost weight. Coincidence? I don't think so.
If any of your are unbiased, you will see what I am saying, if you are a fanatic of Kobe no matter what, you will cringe at this and rage all over me. I'm OK with that. I will still stick to my opinion. To me, there is no explanation other than this that would make me understand why Kobe would lose so much weight before each Olympic games he's played in. If he doesn't lose weight prior to any NBA seasons, then he shouldn't lose weight prior to the Olympics. if it was just once, maybe, but twice? I don't think so....
