09:55 AM ET 08.24 | Los Angeles Clippers' superstar Chris Paul hasn't even been President of the Players Union for a full 24 hours yet -- but he's already put together a list of players' demands to take to the NBA, TMZ has learned. Paul edged out veteran shooter Roger Mason and others to take the position -- and NBA sources tell us the players went with CP3 because they feel he's got the cojones and the clout to effectively take on the league. Sources tell us ... Paul is taking his new role very seriously -- and is already talking to players about his agenda, which includes: 1. Preparing a battle plan to fight any league proposal for HGH testing 2. Eliminating flopping fines 3. Forbidding any dress code additions/changes

What? Why resist HGH testing when the entire sports fans are completely losing faith in their sporting heroes?
Not something you hear from an "intelligent" fellow. I can understand silly things like dress code etc, but drug testing? Players should be volunteering tests if they are not guilty.

1) now theres no denying that even basketball playerz use hgh
2) the biggest if not one of the biggest floppers in the game trying to fight the fine.....of course

If they start seriously testing for HGH I can see a couple of high profile players failing.

(As i look towards LA....)

Wow! Is this really true or is TMZ just making things up? Not a good start as a president if those are your first agendas. What you're trying to promote is allowing players to cheat. Those flopping fines is working for the good of the game and trying to eliminate flopping. You're trying to tell us that flopping is okay. You're also telling us that dressing up professionally is not a good look for the NBA. What if it helps the NBA? I guess you want the players to run the league and do whatever they want. Great start Mr. Presisent!

Nah. Griffin's head is naturally over sized...

How many NBA players end up with a miserably drugged out and meager life after the game? That would seem to be a higher priority than flopping fines....

Funny that CP3 is going to fight HGH testing. What secret is he hiding?

He does have an over sized head. Couldn't possibly be two Clippers born with big noggins...
