Why does steriod use have to always be about making your "actual skills performance" better the only thing that matters. Where I'm sitting, staying healthy, , recovering quicker from injuries and having higher stamina levels(being able to continue to run up and down the court quicker and easier than the "non" juicer) is just as bad if not worse than anything else. :-?

The other obvious would be leg strength. Dunking, rebounding, jump shots, defending, etc. Plus what J35J mentioned, so yes, I'd say jucing can have a definite effect on the game.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I disagree. It has changed slightly as players have to play 1 year in college but why should they go to class?? Most that I have seen figure that their studies don't matter so they focus on basketball and other stuff. Of course, there are the select few that stay in college for 4 years and study their ass off but most that are definites for the NBA probably can't tell you where the campus bookstore is.

I think most performance enhancing drugs would end up in some nasty basketball injuries. The aerobic exercise and athleticism required for basketball is far, far different than baseball.
