The National Basketball Association is taking a page out of Major League Baseball’s rules and regulations book.
According to ESPN.com, the NBA and NBA Players Association are close an agreement that will regulate human hormone growth testing. The examinations will start as soon as the 2013-14 season.
HGH has been a banned substance in the NBA for years, and now David Stern and company are getting stricter in regards to the usage.
Within this new deal at hand, players will experience six urine tests per year, two in the offseason, as well as possible blood tests looking beyond just human growth HGH drugs.
All signs point to this agreement becoming effective soon and quickly.
