(FOX NEWS) - Newly minted Los Angeles Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard has filed a lawsuit against the NBA after they handed down 'unfair' punishments and fines related to his use of a controversial yet 'perfectly legal' supplement.
Last week, NBA officials handed Kawhi a $50,000 fine and are in talks about a possible suspension. Kawhi has responded with legal action as there are no clear written rules in the NBA Drug Policy that state the supplement is illegal, despite several of the ingridients being blacklisted when combined with others not used in the supplement.
Leonard, the 28 year-old three-time NBA all-star, has publicly admitted to using the substance daily to improve overall performance, and has recently been vocal about how important it was in his recovery from injury last season to become the league's most outstanding player this season.
We were able to catch up with the man himself to find out more on his response to the NBA's allegations.
"I don't do drugs, I don't even drink. This is 100% natural," Kawhi defended.
When we asked if he thought taking the supplement was dishonest and misleading, Kawhi laughed.
"First of all everyone is using this, I mean everybody, not just athletes in pro-sports but in Hollywood as well. It's completely fine, because its not illegal and contains no drugs.
This is the real deal. The ultimate performance enhancer." said a grinning Leonard. "Whether you're an athlete or not, any man of any age can absolutely without a doubt benefit from taking this daily. My injury problems aren't even on my radar any more, and I feel fantastic. I'm in the best shape of my life, and I'm stronger and faster than ever before," Leonard said
The popular supplement designed to burn fat, pack on lean muscle, and skyrocket energy and stamina is called Ignite NO2. It's a common product taken by many athletes, but it is under consideration of being banned by major sports organizations for two reasons:
1. This supplement has been proven to boost muscle growth rate by an average of a 150%! This would make an athletes like Kawhi Leonard stronger than "humanly possible" at his age.
2. These supplements don't have to be used in conjunction with a gym. Users experience massive muscle growth and fat loss without lifting a single weight. Many athletic commissions across the globe consider this natural trick to be a "cheat" as it requires hardly any effort on the user's part.
