David Lee underwent a random drug test by the NBA a couple of days ago, and he made sure everyone knew about it:
Yes, that is Lee’s urine, in case you’re wondering.
Per the NBA’s drug policy, a player can be randomly tested for illegal substances twice during the offseason. On Instagram, Lee joked that there was “no other way I would rather start my morning in Malibu.”
It’s good to know, at least, that the Warriors’ starting power forward has nothing to hide.
In other news, the Warriors’ chances of winning an NBA title would increase dramatically if they acquire Kevin Love, according to a graphic from ESPN:

The odds of a championship coming to Golden State as its roster stands right now are a mere 3.96 percent, but it would jump to 13 percent if they land Love. However, the Bulls would see the greatest increase in championship probability, with the Cavaliers not far behind. Obviously this is due to the East being a weaker conference than the West, and the fact that Cleveland is already the title favorites in the eyes of some pundits.
But this graphic does help the case of those who want the Warriors to trade for Love at all costs, even if it involves giving up Klay Thompson.
