The NBA is close to reaching an agreement with the National Basketball Players Association that would allow the league to test players' blood for human growth hormone. Reports say testing could begin as soon next season (2013-14). This is interesting because the NBA has always banned HGH, but it could never really be enforced since the union never allowed blood testing. Then a committee was formed through the 2011 NBA collective bargaining agreement to review the particulars of HGH testing and while progress in talks had been slow, the disconnect isn't quite what it was before.

Renaldo Balkman lost his damn mind for a few minutes. Maybe going from first-round NBA pick to the Philippine Basketball Association can do that to man. Watch him argue a non-call, shove everyone who comes his way and even put his hand around a teammates' neck:
