In light of the Gilbert Arenas fiasco, the New Jersey Nets have banned gambling on team plane. Umm, I think they may have missed the point.
Team president Rod Thorn told the New York Times that the Nets have never had a problem with gambling, but "obviously, you can see what can happen."
Obviously, Mr. Thorn has missed the boat on this one just a bit. Gambling was not the cause of this Arenas/Crittenton situation, stupidity was.
To take a quote from Mark Kreidler of ESPN: "A pro athlete who gambles -- on cards, games, chance, whatever -- is a definition, not an oxymoron."
Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan certainly do not approve.
