What are the odds he gets reinstated at some point?

That was my first thought too, but he's a great guy to make an example of.  He bet on and against his own team (though he didn't play in those games) and faked an injury to tank his props.  And to lawdog's point, he's not good enough that there will be any real pressure to reinstate him.

I think it was a gambling joke that both of you two missed.   ;D

1000 - 1 for the record, Pak.

Maybe this looks harsh in retrospect, but Silver, the NBA and mostly the book makers were livid. I think there is a good chance this will be the punishment even 100 years from now.

Yep they have precedent now. This might be a shot across the bow of other players, they just took down the little guy first.

It doesn’t look harsh to me at all. He had to go. And if it’s a superstar next, he’ll have to go, too.

Or maybe they will send them to play  minor league baseball for a couple of seasons.
