LeBron James is arguably one of the greatest players in the history of the NBA. The King is in his 20th season in the NBA and is managing to put in incredible numbers despite nearing 40. Many in the league hailed LeBron’s longevity, and no one comes close to replicating his standards. Despite his incredible longevity, there are rumors about LeBron taking Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) throughout his 20-year career.
LeBron is known to spend millions to keep up in his best physical condition throughout the season. He plays a huge number of games in a season, before going on a break. However, some have concerns about how LeBron can keep putting up such great numbers while being a 38-year-old. Though there is no evidence of James taking PEDs or HGH during his NBA career, there are always rumors about him taking them.

Recently, a Twitter account that is quite famous for trolling, claimed that the NBA has found evidence of LeBron’s “actions.” This misled many to believe that King James was actually suspended from the NBA as well. However, the truth is that there is no evidence for these claims, and can be dismissed.
The legacy of LeBron is questioned numerous times, and NBA commissioner Adam Silver is accused of protecting him. LeBron has not been a victim of any major injuries during his career. It is hard to believe sometimes while being at the top of his game. Chael Sonnen in a recent podcast, ‘Flagrant’ accused LeBron of using PEDs and having the same supplier. “We have the same drug guy. I know exactly what he’s doing,” said Sonnen.
However, all Sonnen did was make accusations, without giving out actual evidence of LeBron using PEDs. LeBron has never tested positive for doping, and there is still no evidence for it. However, he is never away from the radars of the ones who find James’ physical condition a little too good to be true.
Has LeBron James been suspended for PEDs?
LeBron is playing in his 20th season in the NBA, which is an incredible feat. However, there has been no suspension faced by James for testing positive for taking PEDs. Any accusations about LeBron being suspended for taking PEDs are false, and without proof. The NBA is one of the best leagues in the world with the best athletes. However, the NBA is pretty serious about players taking PEDs, and have been suspended.
LeBron is the face of the NBA while being a 38-year-old, and it begs the question of his dominance. However, as long as there is no proof about LeBron taking PEDs he is a clean athlete. James this season is averaging 29.5 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 6.9 assists. He is currently injured after hurting his foot and will be sidelined for a couple of weeks.
