On Twitter tonight, I came across an article linking Miami Heat superstar and reigning league MVP, LeBron James to the same person that Alex Rodriguez is linked to have purchased steroids from. Whoa! While this is all alleged, and by no way has been verified, if true, this will be very interesting.
The story can be read here, it is written by @incarceratedbob. I have followed him on Twitter for a long time now, and the guy does seem to know his stuff. He does seem to have some sort of inside source, because I have seen him break certain stories in the past, that being said, he has a reputation of just throwing stuff against the wall to see if it sticks, so really who knows.
Basically, in the article Bob allegedly interviews a former employee of Anthony Bosch. The same Anthony Bosch that is thought to have sold steroids to many MLB players, most notably New York Yankee 3rd Baseman Alex Rodriguez. In the interview the employee (Jessica) claims that “Someone named Mr. Paul would come in and Mr. Bosch would give a check to put in the book LJ as being paid for the month.”
Now, you can connect the dots any way you want here, but the connection that Incarcerated Bob makes is LeBron James’ agent and best friend is a guy by the name of Rich Paul, so if a “Mr. Paul” bought performance enhancing drugs from Anthony Bosch for “LJ”, you could say LeBron James is a steroid user. It is very unclear if this is true or not, and I for one am not willing to say that it is, but you can use the evidence presented and come up with your own conclusion. One thing is for sure, this will not be the last we hear about this story.
