NBA Commissioner Expresses Support for Gambling
There is good news for NBA fans that would like to be able to gamble on the sport as late last week NBA commissioner Adam Silver stated that he wants to tap into the $400 billion market of illegal and legal gambling.
The majority of league commissioners in the US are vehemently anti-gambling whereas Silver seems to be embracing it with arms wide open. Silver has said that rather than ignoring the fact that sports gambling is already taking place the industry should be dealing with it “in a constructive manner”.
Furthermore, Silver has said that he believes the best way to protect the integrity of the game is by legalising gambling and making it easier to monitor. Hopefully these comments mean that it won’t be too long before NBA fans can add to their enjoyment of the game by placing a few bets as well.
