The Next Move Against Player Gambling?


The Nets have banned gambling on the team plane in the wake of the Arenas-Crittenton incident, according to The New York Times. And sources tell the paper that Commissioner David Stern is considering expanding the ban to every team.

On Wednesday, the Nets informed players that gambling was no longer permitted on team flights.

“We did,” Rod Thorn, the Nets’ president, said Thursday in a telephone interview in which he confirmed that the team had instituted a ban. “I think after this incident with the Wizards that we just decided that we would not have any on our planes. We’ve never had a problem with it. But obviously, you can see what can happen.”

Thorn, who was formerly the chief of discipline for the N.B.A., said he was not aware of any other teams instituting a prohibition on gambling. He declined to speculate on whether Commissioner David Stern would act. However, a number of team executives, agents and others with ties to the league said they believed the matter was under serious consideration.

I have about 20 conflicting thoughts on this right now and no time to sort them out (real work beckons). What do you guys think?

    I think its unneccessary. I traveled on teams, and its one of the few things you are able to do to past the time. Not everyone is going to read a book or listen to music. Playing cards or dice also could be looked as bonding with your teammates, although gambling after a loss is not a good idea. Players probably should be focusing on the mistakes that cost them the game instead of having fun.

    It’s not the decision that bothers me, but the process. It’s reactionary, over-reactionary even, not proactive. Unfortunately this is how most of the world works. Something has to go wrong, one person usually, for anything to be done and then the response is usually over the top. This ban is going to prevent the 0.0000001% chance that someone else in the NBA is dumb enough to repeat this incident? Brilliant decision-making and leadership, morons. Way to prioritize.
