    Ho Hum. One of this country's top 10 athletes is on his way to Germany to get some blood platellete treatments on his left knee.

    Not getting it done in the United States, because this kind of treatment is NOT ALLOWED in the United States. Some might call this procedure 'blood doping'.



    Why are we not having a rational discussion on this situation?

    Is it ethical? Why isn't the NBA saying anything? If its so good, why isn't it allowed in this country?

    I dunno?

    I'd say a good 60% of my sports threads are 'hard hitting' material, the kind that MAKES you think about it.


    I am kind of high right now too, my neighbor just kicked me a nugget. It was/is awesome.

    He was born in Germany wasn't he? Perhaps the medical care is better there.

    I think you're thinking of Nowitzki. Tall member of the master race. Plays for Dallas.
