In the early 80's cocaine in the NBA was a major problem, and the signs of this were obvious. Players just crashing and burning like a meteor. Then Len Bias happened.

Was there some cocaine use? Probably. Was there regimented cocaine as a performance enhancer usage? Any player that did would flame out spectacularly sooner rather than latter.

The reason Krutov is singled out is not because of the performance enhancer allegations, it's because he crashed so fiercely that he was Pavel Brendl caliber before he hit 30. And the performance enhancer allegations explain how a great player could so quickly become so bad.
