Forget about drawing parallels to Jim Harbaugh and Michigan's sign-stealing, because Thompson's latest escapade involves violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug program.

Brace yourself for the biggest revelation: the athlete tested positive for ibutamoren and SARM LGD-4033, the dynamic duo of performance-enhancement drugs and growth hormones.
