PLAYERS: Mark Cuban
TEAMS: Dallas Mavericks
The outspoken Mark Cuban has sounded off yet again on a topic that can only be deemed controversial at best in the eyes of society.Cuban believes the use of human growth hormone could expedite the rehabilitation process for players recovering from injury. However, more research is needed to make sure that is indeed true."The issue isn't whether I think it should be used," Cuban told USA TODAY Sports via e-mail. "The issue is that it has not been approved for such use. And one of the reasons it hasn't been approved is that there have not been studies done to prove the benefits of prescribing HGH for athletic rehabilitation or any injury rehabilitation that I'm aware of. The product has such a huge (public) stigma that no one wants to be associated with it."Cuban thinks HGH, if studies deemed it had more positive than negative effects, could benefit all parties involved, including players, owners, and fans."I believe that professional sports leagues should work together and fund studies to determine the efficacy of HGH for rehabbing an injury," Cuban told USA TODAY Sports. "Working together could lead us from the path of demonizing HGH and even testosterone towards a complete understanding. It could allow us to make a data based decision rather than the emotional decision we are currently making. And if it can help athletes recover more quickly, maybe we can extend careers and have healthier happier players and fans."As it stands now, HGH is on the list of prohibited substances in just about any major sports league, agency, or organization.Via USA TODAY

  • I think Cuban is taking the HGH and it's affecting his brain as evidenced by his antics at the AMA joke.
  • And if it works, it should be available to Military servicemembers, police, firefighters, athletes, the elderly, the very young...heck, why not everybody?
