Basketball

DJ Cooper’s falsified urine was from pregnant girlfriend.

DJ Cooper’s journey to the NBA isn’t really going so well. You might as well say it’s non existent at this point. You probably don’t have a clue on who DJ Cooper is. I don’t either, but I feel like this story to crazy not to be told. DJ last played for AS Monaco in the FIBA Basketball league. According to Yahoo Sports, in the 2017-2018 Season, DJ averaged 6.7 points per game, and 7.2 assists per game. That was the last year he played for the team. He stepped away due to “family reasons.”

DJ decided that it was time for him to come back and play the game he loved. This is where the story gets interesting. In order for DJ Cooper to return to his Basketball team, he would have to take a drug test as part of his physical. Its standard procedure for most jobs to re-test employees when they return from a break. So DJ took the test. When the results came in, they found out more about DJ than they could have every guessed. He was pregnant!!! Obviously we know that men can’t have babies, so what happened? Yahoo Sports continued to report that “the test on the urine Cooper provided revealed the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, which is a hormone made by placenta during pregnancy. That urine, per the report, actually belonged to his girlfriend- who likely didn’t know she was pregnant at the time.”

OK, so I think I get it now. DJ thought he would be slick, and use his girlfriend urine to pass his drug test. I’m guessing that his girlfriend doesn’t smoke, so he thought she would be the perfect person to do him this favor. The surprise on DJ Cooper’s face when they told him his urine test showed evidence of a baby must have been priceless. Knowing your girlfriend is pregnant, with your child can be an amazing feeling. Knowing your job will probably fire you for fraud, can be a terrifying feeling. This story is absolutely hilarious to me. As dumb as this sounds, I know a lot of people have used other’s to help them pass their drug tests. But using your girlfriend’s urine and turning up pregnant is outrageous. I guess his time off for “family reasons” was valid.
