TMZ Reports…

 The big problem is that the  league is only allowed to test players 4 times during a season.  Because  testing is randomized, the last test can be administered as early as January,  and the season lasts for months thereafter.  As one recently-retired NBA  player put it, after the 4th test, “It’s like Christmas Day.  We can take  whatever we want.”

One NBA-connected source says pot is “ubiquitous” in  the sport.  The source adds, however, that most athletes who indulge do so  in moderation so it doesn’t have a perceptible impact on their  performance.  An NBA rep tells us … weed is not only prevalent, it’s  hardly hidden — he says the hotel rooms where the players stay, and even the  halls, have the telltale smell. The players we’ve spoken with all agree  … pot is prevalent.  But some of the players say Lean — Sprite and  Codeine cough syrup — has become a recreational drug of choice during the  season.  One player said it was even used during the recent  playoffs.

One current and famous player tells TMZ, he estimates 30% of  his fellow NBAers use hard drugs — including Molly, Ecstasy, and Lean —   at some point during the season.  He says he’s never been aware of anyone  doing cocaine during the season. Another current and famous player  tells us he estimates only 10% of NBA players use hard drugs, and no one uses  cocaine during the season — it’s too risky.  He also says Lean is a drug  of choice.

An NBA source agrees — he estimates 10-15% of the players use  hard drugs during the season.

One NBA insider believes the drug use  problem has gotten better over the last 5 years because of social media.   He says players have been burned because pictures of them doing things they  shouldn’t be show up on Instagram and Facebook, and it’s inhibited them.
