    That's because GS got all that injuries from their main star players. Toronto took that chance and exposed the Warriors.

    The Houston Rockets just got Westbrook from OKC and Chandler from the Lakers. I am pretty excited about the pairing of Harden and Westbrook again. Both MVPs at their prime, they are now considered to be the best backcourt in NBA. With Chandler backing up Capela, their front court is beefed up as well, especially with Chandler’s defense prowess. I am a lot happier now.

    I think FINA got it.wrong when it censured participants for shunning Sun Yang at the current world swimming championships.He is an out and out cheat and should be banned from further participation in the sport when his hearing is heard in September.

    Well see the whole story instead of partial bias by the western media and you'll get a total different narrative on what had happened to Sun Yang.

    Interesting, but I'm not totally convinced.
    In his first offence although it seems to have been a minor infringement, how often have we been given the excuse a 'heart condition'.Remember Sharapova?

    Before Sun was even competing accusations were made of Chinese swimmers as they became more successful. One of the weirdest ones was an accusation that the Chinese government rewarded TV sets if Chinese athletes won which is why Chinese were winning. Is that illegal? Does injecting a TV set into your body enhance performance? Oh yeah a million dollar sponsorship from Western corporations doesn't motive them to win? I remember there was a doctor who named a syndrome when athletes have a heightened expectation of winning and then failing to win and losing all the rewards of money and fame that was expected. He described it like post-traumatic stress syndrome soldiers experience. Oh yeah but getting a TV set was somehow cheating.

    Swimming is one of those rich kid sports and just like rich kids living in their own elitist bubble culture where you're suppose to get more than everyone else, swimming is no different. I think it was in the Atlanta games where there was an African-American swimmer who didn't make the US team so he went to swim for some Central American country and he proceeded to beat all his US competitors that did make the US team and he won gold. So why couldn't he make the US team? And you better believe the answer isn't only about who can swim better. So just imagine when a weakling non-athletic Chinese swimmer wins. Look at how traumatic it must be when someone else who's not suppose to win wins the medal that belongs to you. And also there are those stories behind the scenes where at places like the Olympic villages are just giant sex orgies for Western winning athletes. Just imagine how disappointing it is when they lose to a Chinese. It must not be very attractive.

    If american athletes dope it's all about medical treatments and it is LEGAL.

    If Sun Yang takes a medicine against his heart problem which includes Trimetazidine, which was on and off on WADAs dopinglist ( that means: sometime it was legal to use it sometimes not), than he is cheater, he is a fraud and it is absolut ILLEGAL.

    That is pure hypocrisy.
