N.B.A. Commissioner Adam Silver: Said  Allow Gambling on Pro Games

Silver said.==="If you have a gentleman's bet or a small wager on any kind of sports contest, it makes you that much more engaged in it,

" Silver said. "That's where we're going to see it pay dividends.

  You would think that the N.B.A. would be more understanding about the gambling !

  Just look at some of the headlines in the past from there own players

 Multiple NBA sources say Allen Iverson is facing alcohol and gambling issues that have derailed his career and threaten his post-basketball well-being,

Charles  Barkley claims gambling problem has cost him $10M

 Antoine Walker has a scheduled court in Las Vegas in a case involving an $822,500 gambling debt.

 Michael Jordan was spotted at the baccarat pit of an Atlantic City casino in the wee hours of the morning before game two of the Eastern Conference Finals.

 

 In 1999 I was asked to fly to New York to the National Basketball Association office in Manhattan and met with league officials, x players and union officials, concerned about players' gambling. I was told, "We have a problem, and we're trying to find out how bad the problem is" "We have players gambling on airplane trips loosing all kinds of $" Officials asked me to keep my calendar open for the spring of the following year and said to me that they wanted me to address every team and player in the league. They then flew my wife in, and we had a second meeting they asked us develop questions that were going to be given to the players to answer. "We need to know how big the gambling problem is in the N.B.A ," When I hadn't heard from the N.B.A, I called and asked, "When do we start?" The talked were cancelled, and the response I got was this: "They said that the higher-ups didn't want the media to find out"

P S  I HAVE THE QUESTIONS WE WROTE IN A STAMPED SEALED ENVOLOPE

  You can see the questions in our book   " ALL BETS ARE OFF"

 In May 1996, Horace Balmer, the NBA's vice president for security, had two speakers flown to Norfolk, Va., whose messages were even very disturbing. Michael Franzese, a former mob boss who fixed professional and college games for organized crime, and Arnie Wexler, who for 23 years was a compulsive gambler. Franzere said, ``I talked to the NBA rookies earlier this season . . . and it's amazing how many confided to me that they have gambling habits. I'm not going to mention their names, but if I did, you would know them" ``I personally got involved in compromising games with players, and it all came through their gambling habits.' ( THE VIRGINIAN-PILOT -May 11, 1996 )

 Years ago, I was on a TV show with Howard Cossell (ABC Sports Beat). The topic was: Does the media encourage the public to gamble? David Stern, NBA commissioner said: "We don't want the week's grocery money to be bet on the outcome of a particular sporting event"

 What a change===== On Dec. 11, 2009, commissioner David Stern told SI.com (the website for Sports Illustrated) that legalized gambling on the NBA "May be a huge opportunity"

ARE THEY KIDDING ??
