Only because a lot of people hate LeBron and make everything negative does a big deal.
Bonds is a perfect example. Contact hitter, who could fly. He was an athlete playing baseball, then became the complete opposite.
Without juice he was an allstar player, but nothing more
At least 3 of Bonds' MVPs came when he was not on the sauce. He also averaged .300+, 40 dongs a year and had 8 gold gloves pre-clear.
He was one of the greatest to ever play, pre steroids.
Jesus Christ, I thought you played baseball?
WWE is more legit than the NBA.
TURDS ALL UP IN THIS MUG. /// "2010 Auburn Tigers, my favorite team. Unbeaten in all ways." -- Dan Wetzel, April 4, 2013, 6:29 p.m.
Steroids cannot make a baller out of a poor contact hitter. It's not rocket science.
Junior college doesn't count.
Anyway, to sk, pretty much everyone in MLB or even MiLB is on a level talent field. Consistency sets people apart.
If you're juicing, you feel near 100 percent every day, making you a better player. You don't have to turn into Bonds to be a better player. Many small things make a huge difference, especially in a 162 game grind.
I don't think many understand what kind of physical grind that is.
No, I totally understand. But you can't sit there and tell me HGH would cure Dan Uggla's or BJ Upton's batting woes.
It would probably help somewhat, but it's an exponential relative to the caliber of player.
A great player will see greater benefit. Of course a dude that's batting .128 is not all of a sudden going to leap to .400
Explain how the NBA lottery is rigged
These are recent winners, starting in 1990 when the current system was setup
Hardly a parade of big market teams.
Who really cares about baseball players doing roids?? They're all on it and the powers that be all but condoned their use. The NFL is the worst, their players are all on HGH and no one gives a shit because we like football and want all the players to be bigger, stronger, faster.
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
He was a great player pre-roids and he did win 3 MVPs before he got on the juicye but your numbers aren't even close.
I put the juicing of Bonds/McGuire/Sosa at 1996 based on their number spikes which gives us 10 years of Bonds performance off the juice. Here is a breakdown:
# of season with 40+ HRs - 1(He only hit more than 30 5 times).
# of seasons hitting over .300 - 4(only hit better than .312 once in those 10 years).
# of season with 40+ HRs - 7.
# of season hitting over .300 - 7(over .328 4 times).
He only had 5 Gold Gloves in his first 10 years. He ended his career with 8. I think he would have had a couple more had he not gotten so ridiculously big.
Still would have been a probable first ballot HOFer but roids took him to levels he had never seen before even without the 73 HR season. He doesn't come close to Hank's record without the juice. Just crazy to think he hit 28 dongs at 42 in 2007 and he hit 19 in 1989 as a 24 year old(4th year in the league).
I was being rough and dirty with the nums regardless, but my numbers are closer given my understanding that Bonds was not on the juice til around 2000-2001.
He was not juicing during Sosa and Red Fraud's run. They were the reason he did though. He couldn't stand the fact that guys who weren't even in the same universe talent-wise were getting so much pub.
Looked it up. 1999 season was his first taste apparently
Like I said, i let numbers speak for themselves. Dude has 1 season with more than 40+ HRs and then his numbers start to go up as he hits his 30s? and we see Sosa/McGuire going nuts starting in 1996 as well? I don't have evidence any of them used but we can certainly draw conclusions and all evidence points to 1996 as the year it began to take place. Just being honest. Bonds was an incredible talent but he an't a consistent 40+ HR guy at 185 lbs like he was until he reached 30 years of age.
Both equally jokes. MLB is just to damn boring. Period.
And the NBA is probably in the worst era of its history. With baby bron bron being the poster child of the league, he's also the laughing stock.
Yeah Bonds hit the same # of dongs in 92 (34) as he did in 99. He hit the same amount in 94 (37) as 98. I don't know what to tell you other than he only started going insane off the charts starting in 2000. Which coincides with what's been written about his juice use.
Barry Bonds began using steroids after the 1998 baseball season and came to rely on a wide variety of performance-enhancing drugs over the next several years, according to a book written by two Chronicle reporters and excerpted in this week's Sports Illustrated. The excerpt offers the most comprehensive account of Bonds' experience with steroids, tracing his involvement to the off-season following the historic home-run race featuring Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. Bonds decided to use performance-enhancing substances after watching McGwire -- whom the excerpt says he suspected was Williams said.
