“The issue isn’t whether I think it should be used,” Cuban told USA TODAY Sports via e-mail. “The issue is that it has not been approved for such use. And one of the reasons it hasn’t been approved is that there have not been studies done to prove the benefits of prescribing HGH for athletic rehabilitation or any injury rehabilitation that I’m aware of. The product has such a huge (public) stigma that no one wants to be associated with it.”

Hes only referring to injury rehabilitation. I agree with Cuban 100%.

We can slander with all the acronyms we want "HGH, PEDs"...whatever. The negative side of using these drugs makes sense when it is in direct relation to cheating.

But for the purpose of rehab and saving a career the same drugs can be viewed as medical and scientific advancements.


Theres no reason a guy like Derrick Rose shouldn't be maximizing any advantage at his disposal right now. It just needs to be regulated and rules enforced to prevent people from going Barry Bonds and for medical safety reasons. And Stern and the league FO should hire a outside medical firm for over sight regulatory enforcement. And that should be paid by the player/team thats needing the benefit of HGH/PED rehabs.

It unfortunately has too much of a negative connotation in sports for it to be easily approved after a study from Cuban. It'll take a ESPN special to get people to change their mind about it, but I do agree with Cuban.

^ As do I. Some fans might [expletive] & moan, but once they get it through some of their thick-headed stubborn-like heads, they'll hopefully realize this is actually in their best [expletive]in' interest. They get to see their favorite stars more often and more sooner. Who the [expletive] wouldn't want that? C'mon man.

Mark Cuban Special: "I was right. Now eat it Stern!"  

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
