The use of steroids is an unfair training method for sports. Unfairness is contrary to laws, marked by deception, and unethical. When the legality, lack of work and advantageousness, and cheating are examined it is easy to see how steroids are extremely unfair in more than one way. First of all, the use of steroids is an unfair training method because steroids themselves are very illegal. “Steroids are illegal in the United States unless prescribed by a doctor for a known medical condition.” (SI.com) If steroids are illegal it is obvious you should not have them or be using them at all.

He has always been one of the biggest icons of all sports. Jordan is the most influential player to ever play the game of basketball. Not only has he influenced the game of basketball itself, but he has influenced society and the city of Chicago in a major way.

Although some people insist that doping should be legal, most do not realize the consequences of this action. Performance enhancing drugs have become a huge issue in today’s world of sports. Competing at a high level should require a great deal of talent and dedication.

Introduction I was watching Minnesota’s NBA team when it hit me. I was trying to figure what I should do for a topic on my I-Search paper. Kevin Love was shooting a triple and I knew that I had found my topic; the history of the NBA. I knew that the NBA had an interesting history and that it was one of America’s most popular professional sports leagues. I was aware that there would be endless resources on the topic, so I decided to pursue the history of the National Basketball Association.

Until role models realize that they are role models, and start doing what is right, bad sportsmanship will continue to exist. When you do not have good sportsmanship, you will not have fun when you compete in sporting events. Athletes and fans need to remember life is not all about sports.
