06:52 PM ET 02.06 | The NBA may not face as many questions about performance enhancing drugs as Major League Baseball or the NFL, but that won't stop the league from getting stricter drug testing. With the MLB preparing to test for human growth hormone in season and the NFL working on a way to test for HGH, NBA commissioner David Stern says that he expects the league to start testing for HGH as soon as next season. Stern was speaking to WCCO in Minnesota during a radio interview and he made it clear that he would like testing before he leaves the game. It is possible that the NBA's PED problem is not as great as the other major sports, but it is a wise move to get ahead of the curve and install drug testing to erase any doubts.

My heart skipped a beat there. "David Stern announces his resignation" was what I wanted to read.

Lance Armstrong is a scumbag. He should be sentenced to death with all fellow competitive cyclists performing the torture + execution.
