NBA Should Study The Potential Benefits Of HGH, Says Dallas Mavericks Owner

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has remarked that the National Basketball Association (NBA), the premier men’s professional basketball league in the world, and other sport leagues should take a closer look at the prospective benefits of human growth hormone (HGH).

Cuban remarked the issue is not whether he thinks HGH should be used and the issue is that it has not been approved for expediting an athlete’s return. He also remarked one of the reasons why human growth hormone has not 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 he is aware of and the product has such a huge public stigma that no one wants to be associated with it.

Cuban’s comments echoed the same he made this summer while making an appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” While discussing about the season-plus-long PED suspension of MLB player Alex Rodriguez, Cuban said it’s never been proven that HGH helps a baseball player or a basketball player and HGH is just been so tainted that players shouldn’t take it that it’s become banned for no good reason.

The Dallas Mavericks owner said he believes that professional sports leagues should work together and fund studies to determine the efficacy of HGH for rehabbing an injury and working together could lead us from the path of demonizing HGH and even testosterone towards a complete understanding. Cuban said 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.

Under the 1990 Anabolic Steroids Control Act, use of human growth is illegal without a prescription. The distribution and possession of the hormone for any use other than the treatment of a disease or other recognized medical condition, where such use has been authorized by the Secretary of Health and Human Services and pursuant to the order of a physician is classified as a felony, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. HGH is classified as a performance enhancing drug by the World Anti-Doping Agency and International Olympic Committee and the agencies ban athletes from using it. Human growth hormone has the ability of promoting and increasing the synthesis of new protein tissues. It also has the potential of improving sleep patterns and sexual performance. HGH is also found beneficial for improving the quality and duration of heart and kidneys and is equally effective for building stronger bones. Supplementing human growth hormone can raise the metabolism and energy levels of an individual, which in turn makes people, feel energized and burn fat at a faster pace.

In the past, the National Basketball Association and the National Basketball Players Association agreed to the appointment of a panel of experts for studying the issue of human growth hormone testing as part of the 2011 collective bargaining agreement but no findings were reported as yet.
