07:19 AM ET 09.24 | Time is running out. With NBA training camps set to open at the end of the week, an important order of business remains unresolved: an agreement between the league and the players' association on a testing policy for human growth hormone. As for outgoing commissioner David Stern's hope that a plan will be in place in time for the tipoff of the 2013-14 season, prepare to be disappointed. Officials from the league office and National Basketball Players Association met earlier this month in New York to continue discussions on the matter, but a person familiar with the talks told CBSSports.com, "Nothing is anywhere near being agreed to." The negotiations are ongoing, but the gap may be too wide to close in time for a policy to be in place in time for the start of the regular season.

This HGH thing is ridiculous. I don't see a huge difference between it an any other training tool.

I'm assuming the Miami Heat's owner is against HGH testing

HGH testing can't come soon enough. Wait till the world hears some of their beloved stars have been juicing all this time. Wait till the players start looking down on others who juiced.

I guess that when we start watching mutants on the court and the field, someone might notice.

Damn; I can't believe we agree twice in the same year. I think there are certain players like the aforementioned Bynum that would significantly benefit from from HGH.

Yeah that's a joke. LeBron has to be using HGH. There's no way James built his body with just weight training and good diet.
