Default Adam Silver wants to allow sports betting

I can't believe you can't bet on the NBA. I won $300 for 2012 MIami winning plus LeBron MVP

The league is already rigged. You can't tell me that refs don't call games that take point spreads into account. You ever notice when a team is winning by 30 that a ref will stop making the same calls in hopes the game gets a little tighter. It happens every single time a team is getting it's ass whooped. The losing team doesn't get called for travels, moving picks, or the hacking they do on the other end of the court.

When does a team in Vegas come into play, seems like a potential windfall for the league's revenue.

I knew about prostitution, but sports betting seems rather odd.

Here, you got places for betting on literally every corner. Five in the street next to me, and it's not a big street...
