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

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.

Another year the Bulls miss the playoffs.

Time to drop $200M in Pat Williams lap.  ;D

Try to get a 2nd rounder in a trade. Maybe get 2 2nd rounders for Lavine.

Neither guy has much value. Williams has never been any good and Lavine’s contract means they can’t get much back for him either.

You are right. LaVine's contract is a huge issue but also the Bulls won more after he went down. There was hardly a market for him before the injury and he publicly announced he wants out, so a single 2nd round pick maybe the best they can do.

Williams looks like he should get a Coby White type deal, primarily because of his age, at about 3/$35M. His absence did not hurt the Bulls at all.

The Bulls GM is the main issue. I can't think of one good draft pick or trade or FA signing he has made.

I'm gonna go wild and pick Nuggets over Celtics for the title.

Came close to picking the Thunder, but it's not quite their time yet.

You would think the C's have a much easier path to get to the Finals.  I'd like to see OKC or Minny make some noise.

I would also root for the Knicks but Stephen A. Smith makes that impossible.

The solution is easy:

1. Root for the Knicks.
2. Don't pay attention to Smith.

Apparently, when watching the Knicks play, Muggsy is somehow forced to also listen to Screamin' A Smith in the background.

He is the only person in the world who faces such a mandate. I feel for him.

This is incorrect.  I had the terrible misfortune of having to listen to him for about 30 secs during the halftime of that game.  His act is a total embarrassment and he's also been proven to be a fraud.  The overall ESPN studio  coverage of NBA basketball, led by Smith and his buffoonery, is as bad as humanly possible.
