A Must-Read for NBA Fans

Henry Abbott interviews [former] Professional Gambler, Haralabos Voulgaris, about the Donaghy Scandal, the best and worst of the NBA, and life in general. If you care at all about the league, its integrity, and the game of basketball in general, you're going to want to read this.

This is possibly, without hyperbole, the most important interview regarding basketball that I have ever read. Feel free to contact me with competitors, but for me, this one takes the cake by a long shot.

How does this guy not have a job in the NBA? The future of the NBA depends upon the points he brings up, and he seems to be the most knowledgable person on the sport in the world. Granted, the hiring of a known professional gambler might not do wonders for the league image that is struggling with a fixing scandal, but there aren't teams out there who can't take a flyer on this guy as a statistician or head of recruiting or something in Basketball Ops (I don't really know what that means)?
