Lebron & PEDs?..(Grain of Salt)
Now this IB has some decent sources in the NFL I know, because he has hit on multiple big name FA signings before a lot of credible reporters & insiders. He was the first to mention Mario Williams to the Buffalo Bills, Peyton Manning to the Broncos, & Tebow to the Jets.
Now when it comes to the NBA I highly doubt he has any sources, but here's the story...
Former employee of Anthony Bosch claims a Mr.Paul picked up items from the clinic on a monthly basis , and when he paid the initials L.J. where used in the bookkeeping log.. Why would that be suspicious? Well Lebron's best friend and agent's name is Rich Paul … - See more at: http://ibnsportswrap.com/article.php?ar ... fF5wB.dpuf
More proof that the american sports world is a mess. You’ve heard some words from Incarcerated Bob on twitter saying that some more names were linked with the whole scandal that rocked the world earlier this year, A Rod being the biggest of them all. But before getting to the dirty part, let’s make put up a little background story. Introducing first our guest on the line : Jessica. She had been introduced to Anthony Bosch by mutual friends before beginning to work for him from April 2010 to February 2012 as a assistant before leaving the company. She was in charge of keeping track of pretty much every financial transfer in Bosch’s clinic. And, rightfully so, she contacted Incarcerated Bob to let the world know what she’s been seeing over the last two years.
Here’s some details about the things she kept track of :
Incarcerated Bob : What names stood out to you ?
Jessica : LJ, JN, Francisco, Cruz ..
Incarcerated Bob : These were the name that you just had and were told to put in the books ?
Jessica : Yes.
Incarcerated Bob : How did that work, money would come in ? Did Mr Bosch tell you to put some initials in the books ?
Jessica : Yes. Like LJ, someone named Mr Paul would come in and Mr Bosch would give a check to put in the book LJ as being “payed for the month”.
Our guest added later that this Mr Paul came every month, once a month, taking products for LJ. She told IBN Sports Wrap that Mr Paul was a friend of LeBron James and what we know for sure is that one of LJB’s closest friend AND agent is Rich Paul. She also pointed out that some of her coworkers were 100% sure that Lebron James was a client of the instute and was the LJ in question. But here more details :
Incarcerated Bob : Now, you also said a JN who did it stood for ?
Jessica : Jameer Nelson.
Incarcerated Bob : How do you know JN is Jameer Nelson ?
Jessica : Well, he came to the office.
Incarcerated Bob : So you’re saying Jameer Nelson came in person ?
Jessica : Yes
Incarcerated Bob : What did he take ? Did he make a payment ?
Jessica : Yes, he took products.
Incarcerated Bob : Did he actually pay ?
Jessica : Yeah, he paid in cash.
Our guest officially identified Jameer Nelson, player of the Orlando Magic who had come in person to Anthony Bosch’s office numerous times and later confirmed that she was indeed telling the truth about both him and LeBron James. Answering a question from Incarcerated Bob, the former Biogenesis bookkeeper told IBN that she was instructed to destroy all the files when the investigations began on Mr Bosch’s clinic and our guest had been explicitly asked to erase the initials and the name (JN, LJ, Francisco ..) from the files/bookkeeping logs.
In my view too many things add up for this to be a coincidence , we have a smoking gun who physically saw one NBA star (Jameer Nelson) and who saw a Mr. Paul make payments for someone who had the initials L.J. -- Meanwhile the best friend for (Lebron James) is non other than Rich Paul.. Something smells real fishy in South Beach and it's not those late night Miami escorts. The NBA clearly has a steroid problem and their superstar looks involved, the fans deserve a thorough investigation and possibly future testing.
I doubt it, I wouldn't put nothing past anyone, but Lebron's agent would def be wayyyy smarter than that if they were purchasing things like that.
The damage it would have on Lebron's career if this were true would be devastating, so I doubt this happened as obvious as stated.
I have no idea what is going on here. So Jameer Nelson, a professional athlete in this day and age just walked into a clinic and purchased some performance enhancing drugs over the counter? OK.
It's one SKETCHY interview with that chick if you listen to it hahaha
This entire PED firm has seemed like something that is sorta fake, some people could be real clients but I think the firm is grabing for attention.
i think these ped firms want attention. i think the same thing might have happened to lance armstrong and he might have chose to say he cheated just so he could be allowed to compete in something he loves doing but i wouldn't doubt it if lebron was on them either but i'm leaning towards he's not connected. it's something i just don't know either way. but isn't it the athletes body? the athlete should be responsible for what goes into his/her body just like anyone else. and it shouldn't be taken if it does harm or is of the employer as a substance not prohibited.simple as that but i don't hear about the nba testing for them. i do wonder how lebron or a creative player like rondo play on a dose of lsd knowing there would not be any bad effects. ask doc ellis or jimi hendrix if that wouldn't be a performance enhancer. we would probably see things never even imagined before. thank you joeygladstone for the articles.
Not saying he's doing PEDs, but you can't deny the fact he is quite overly massive. Also factor in all the other major stars in other sports who have been caught, even Lance Armstrong.
It's obviously out there, and if we really knew how many players were doing it we would probably be sick. Personally I'd rather not know and continue having respect for the players.
For "LJ" sake I hope he's not using them, because if so that's a damn shame because he could still be #1 without them most likely.
"I'd rather not know and continue having respect for the players"
So you'd prefer to be fooled? That reminds me the Tour de France. Everyone knows the competitors are doped, but still million people gather every year to support them. They just chose to forget and have fun.
I'm not saying LJ is doped, though.
I'm sure Skip Bayless will have a field day with this as he goes out of his way to knock James. The timing does seem convenient, as LeBron has been playing out of his mind recently. If they were indeed Nelson, James and possibly more, this story should've came to light earlier but I'm sure they'll wave the customer confidentiality flag. To me it sounds like this firm wants their cake by publicising a high-profile story.
'JN' came in person (presumed to be Jameer) to allegedly purchase the drugs as opposed to having somebody else to buy it for him and records of this transaction have been subsequently removed? All sounds very fishy in terms of a legitimate newsworthy story. This could lead to LeBron and Nelson taking legal action due to the poor amount of evidence provided by this firm and the harm it does to the players' reputation.
But anyone can clearly see the physical similarities between Lebron and Barry Bonds, both of theirs hands and heads are massive and they seeemed to be a lot smaller when they started out their professional careers...The MLB tore down Barry and dismissed all his stats as if he never existed all the while ignoring the rapant use of PEDS to this day, Lebron has always appeared like a guy who most definitely could be juicing, but without concrete evidence we real fans will never know, most casual fans won't care as much about the integrity of the sport, they just want the Stars to be Stars and the world to be made out of Bubble Gum....A Rod, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGuire, Jose Canseco, Lance Armstrong and now LeBron James?
The difference between Barry and Lebron is that Barry got bigger and bigger after 30. Lebron came in the league at 18. The body does a pretty good transformation over those few years after 18. Especially if you're working out everyday. I was 155 pounds at 18. Now at 24 I hover around 185 and I'm in similar shape. I also don't work out everyday and take protein and have access to everything that NBA players have. Considering Lebron came in at 240 and he is probably around 265 isn't that big of a shock.
Lebron James also entered the league at 18, standing 6'7 without shoes and 245 lbs with 6.7 percent body fat. At 18. He was already, end to end, the fastest player in the league. Lebron James is a freak, was a freak, and will always be a freak. The fact that we are now clumping another great athlete with proven cheaters is unfair to Lebron.
I hope not... I have my suspicions about SEVERAL NBA players, but I just hope not.
I don't want to see what happened to the MLB happen to the NBA.
in this day and age would anyone be shocked? If baseball players are doing it, of course basketball and football players are doing it as well. Football has always been the one in my head that has to be like 90 percent of those guys doing something illegal. The toll their body takes, and recovering to play those Sunday to Thursday games? come on. Those bodies do not look natural, its scary. Ive had suspicions about Lebron, His first year in the league, he actually looked like a kid. Now he looks like a giant mutant with a big head, receding hairline, and almost looks like Greg Oden. Guys like dwight howard and those shoulders have always made me wonder too. I wonder if stern would turn a blind eye if any star got caught?
Even if this is true, the NBA would cover this up. Lebron means way too much money to the league for this to come out.
Now Dwight gets mentioned? We're talking about high school players that hadnt even fully developed their bodies. Bonds between 1997 and 2000 visually gained 30 pounds of mass. Lebron's weight has been steadily creeping up as he gets older, with no real dramatic change to body type.
You can just see how he looks and know he is using something.
I don't really believe it but am I the only one who thinks that it isn't purely a coincidence that 2 of the 7 players in the NBA caught using PEDs played for the Magic(Rashard Lewis and Turkoglu), and now this lady(as sketchy as the source is) is saying Jameer Nelson is in on it too? Granted I do believe Turkoglu's was in Turkey and probably to make an injury heal quicker rather than for performance enhancing needs.
I read somewhere that blood tests will be made next season. LBJ using PED's would be a devastating news for the NBA and the entire world of basketball, though it seems possible. I really think the NBA would cover it up under certain conditions, like it has happened in other sports.
if the nba has steroids then they should be made mandatory in all professional sports.
