Testing the Pros

The United States Olympic Committee plans to drug test high profile pro athletes like NBA Dream Teamers up to a year before the Olympics, just like it does to all other U.S. Olympians. Olympic team members from glamour sports like basketball, baseball and hockey are presently tested just before the games begin. The professional leagues, which have less stringent testing procedures than Olympic sports, aren't happy about the change.
