Of all the professional sports leagues in America, the NBA seems to either be the most lax or has the least amount of problems concerning performance enhancing drugs.  The NBA tests players randomly four times during the season and twice during the offseason.  San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard was given a drug test immediately after his incredible MVP performance over the Houston Rockets.

Leonard scored 39 points, capping the production with a 6.5-second sequence of brilliance on both ends of the floor, being the key to the Spurs 112-110 victory and elevating his standing in the debate over the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award.Then in an interesting but unrelated twist, the NBA tabbed Leonard for a drug screening, and the forward took a little longer than expected to provide a sample because of slight dehydration. That, in turn, delayed Leonard’s availability to the media.

Leonard’s 39 points was matched by fellow MVP candidate James Harden, who also dished out 12 assists in the Rockets’ loss.

“I don’t know how they pick or choose it,” Leonard said. “I don’t really think about how other guys play the game. I’m just playing basketball, trying to make my team the best team right now coming down this stretch. I’m just trying to win the game. I’m just buying into myself, and just trying to be the best defender on that end, and then coming down on the offensive end and trying to be the best player.”
