What to do about PEDs?

Performance-enhancing drugs were a hot topic at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. Here, Warriors assistant GM Kirk Lacob (who studied "science, technology and society") at Stanford suggests to Ethan Sherwood Strauss that the NBA should be open-minded about PEDs.

A counterpoint, also from Sloan, comes from admitted former doper Tyler Hamilton. He nearly died from complications of a banned blood transfusion, and tells Henry Abbott that the stress of his double life made returning his Olympic medal more satisfying than winning it. He is an outspoken opponent of doping.
