Donovan Mitchell, Cavaliers Drug-Tested After 71 Point Game
And who knew that after an amazing performance in a NBA game, you get drug tested.
That is what happened to NBA superstar Donovan Mitchell who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Mitchell had one of the best scoring showings in NBA history with 71 points. That is the most points scored by an NBA player since late NBA icon Kobe Bryant’s 81-point game.
An amazing feat one worthy of a drug test.
According to ESPN
, the All-Star shooting guard and the rest of the Cavs players were actually subjected to random tests for PEDs, performance enhancement drugs.
Keep in mind, NBA players are required to take up to four random tests for PEDs during the season and two additional tests during the offseason.
But is this just coincidental or intentional?
Who knows, but the timing sure is funny.
