Florida it seems is a hot spot for PEDs. Wasn't that "spa" down there that outed a bunch of MLB guys the other day?

I've said before I wouldn't be surprised if Howard has ever used before. His shoulders were ridiculously massive. Ridiculously. :man10:

Nah... Deltoid muscles are easy to develop... Nothing on Dwight's frame appears unnatural to me... Heck, look at Kobe as a rookie & Kobe 2007...

I'm not sure any muscle is "easy to develop"...

But his growth is certainly shocking, if not unnatural. It doesn't have to look weird for it to be PED use. I mean look at Turkoglu, does he look like the typical guy on steroids? Steroid use in the NBA (where used) is almost certainly used for recovery and healing. 82 games a season, not counting playoffs. Flying to and fro all over the country. It takes a toll on the body and PED use is probably rampant.

But that doesn't mean guys like Dwight and LeBron and of course Wade couldn't be using it recreationally.

That's called a kid turning into a man. If a 17 year old kid works out every days for 6-7 years...you think he's gonna look the same as he did when he was 17? Common sense here....

What's it called when a kid turns into a giant man? I mean c'mon it's not out of the realm of possibility that his shoulders are massive due to PEDs AND extensive workouts focused on making his shoulders enormous. Clearly he's genetically gifted, but not all genetic freaks are going to get massive. Especially at that size where it's difficult to build that type of muscle out of the gates.

Look, it's certainly possible...but look at young Barry vs steroid Barry. It's not just muscles that change, it's the entire body. Hell look at DWade's face...that's far more likely than Dwight. Dwight's face has stayed basically the same he's just built muscle in his arms and legs...it's not like his entire body has blown up.

It doesn't necessarily have to though. Also consider the advancement in that field. Wade is the way he is because of what I believe to be over use.

Look at guys like Turkoglu or Armstrong. They're PED users but they aren't massive and their bodies didn't change that much. A lot of guys use for endurance. I'd suspect Dwight used as well to help his progress physically over the last 4-5 years. The sheer size of his muscle growth is shocking regardless of the way the rest of his body looks.

He could just be very good at it. Technology in that field has vastly improved since Barry's time.
