He's so big/fast/strong that its probably to good to be true. 2nd is easily Dwight Howard. Kobe is 3rd based on his resiliency and fountain of youth aura he has obtained over the years. Then I'd mention Wade. PED's keeps elite players from being sidelined with nagging/long term injuries. Wade is the epitome of the physically regressing player. Sure, he took it at one point. I agree with that. But since 2010, he's been quite brittle. Doesn't look like a guy who's reaping the benefits of PED's and flourishing due to them.
As far as the report, I'm kinda surprised only one player was possibly identified.
Iceberg Slim wrote:^Your exact logic should be aligned with Kobe Bryant, not Wade. Recovery time? Who recovers faster than Kobe and plays at a high level in the NBA, especially considering mileage and age? Kobe recently said he's 3-4 months ahead of time right now. Wade had suffered injuries, sure. But his recovery is NOT fast. Look at this years playoffs for proof. If I'm not mistaken, game 5 in the Finals was the first game he had at least 20 points since playing Milwaukee in round 1. Kobe has bad games and physical slumps at times, sporadically. Wade has bad months, plural, yet he's played 7 years less than Kobe. He's still explosive because he's simply an elite athlete. Kobe has had multiple knee surgeries, shoulder surgery, the most severe ankle sprains I've ever seen, torn tendons in this shooting hand, and now an achilles tear. And he's 3 months ahead of schedule lol? Again, I don't see how Wade is the first guy suspected to be on PED's if the argument is recovery time and sustainability of physical gifts. Kobe in year 17, just had one of his best years in 2012.

Dwight's used some, but he's always been a monster in the weight room, so he hasn't been bathing in the stuff like the Miami duo.
