Really though...you pay these guys millions of dollars a year and expect them to perform at these levels for their entire contracts. What do you really expect an aging player to do? Would you really drop your $12m/yr when you are 35, or juice and continue your carreer? These guys are human just like the rest of us...they want to keep that cash coming in, and performance enhancement is what they have available. As far as I see it, they know the side effects of the drug, and are willing to risk it so they can fulfill the expectation set forth by the coaches, and worse yet, the fans.
