NBA Star David Lee

NBA Drug Testing Is

'Very Thorough'

EXCLUSIVE

082913_david_lee_launchGolden State Warriors star David Lee tells TMZ ... he thinks the NBA drug testing policy is rock solid -- and believes the reason only 1 guy has tested positive for hard drugs since 2000 is because the players are simply staying clean.

Lee was leaving Hooray Henry's nightclub in L.A. last night when we asked about the drug culture in the NBA -- specifically the statistic that the ONLY person who tested positive for a drug harder than weed in the past 13 years is Chris "Birdman" Andersen.

"I can tell you [the NBA is] very thorough with their testing," Lee told us.

As we reported, multiple NBA sources tell us players have found a loophole in the NBA drug testing policy -- because they're only tested 4 times a year, and after the 4th test "It's like Christmas Day."

But Lee disagrees ... explaining, "Testing is very thorough and very random  ... so it's very difficult to try to do that kind of stuff to avoid it."

The only ones who fail the NBA drug tests , are the ones that didn't study.

THEN HOW DID THEY MISS LAMAR's CRACK COCAINE ADDITION, when Kris Jenner and TMZ knew about it...? Oh wait.... unless Kriss Jenner PAID TMZ to run the BS story. If she paid attention to her business, her stupid show wouldn't have been cancelled.

So in otherwords TMZ's drug stories about Lamar were not only "probably" paid propaganda by Kris Jenner, they almost CERTAINLY were. Eff TMZ. Eff the whole Kardashian mess.

The only reason why Birdman got caught is he probably didn't get the memo when the drug test schedules were.

One positive test in 13 years is BS. You have my permission to blow the lid off this thing. The NBA has been getting away with murder it seems.
