There is no logic to where "this guy improved, he must have cheated".
You can't stop at "he got better," you have to look for more red flags.
What age did this improvement happen?
Where was the improvement?
What are the historical comps to this type of improvement?
Where there any abnormal physical changes in the player?
What was the environment in which he played?
And many more.
Again, none of these questions prove anything, no conclusions can be drawn, but they are question an inquiring person should ask.
