The Toronto center thought he could get away with it.

Beat your girlfriend, your wife, be accused of sexual assault, as was the case with Kevin Porter, Darren Collison and others? The NBA will just suspend you for a while. Put your children in danger like Miles Bridges did? No problem, just a temporary suspension. Racism and former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling? Lifetime ban. A fan of betting for or against yourself, like Jontay Porter? Also a lifetime ban. We care about Porter, but we are not here to justify or condemn Jontay, but simply to discuss all the details of the lifetime suspension of the brother of NBA champion Michael Porter.

And yet the story with him was confirmed. As NBA Commissioner Adam Silver previously promised, the league will not stand on ceremony with bettors, especially those who involve third parties in their schemes, trying to circumvent existing rules. So what did Jontay Porter do? It was previously reported that the Toronto Raptors big man was a bettor from 2021 to 2023, but the sportsbook would not accept any NBA bets from Jontay because he was a Development League player, as betting on any is prohibited. NBA related event. . Betting on other sports is not prohibited.

And apparently, during the investigation, the league found evidence that bets on Porter’s individual performance were placed by him or people affiliated with him. And from January to March 2024, while playing for the Toronto farm club, Porter, through his friend, placed 13 bets ranging from $15 to $22,000 for a total of $54,094. His net winnings were $21,965. Jontay himself played.

The last point in the question of his lifetime disqualification is the bet placed against the Toronto Raptors.

“Nothing is more important than protecting the integrity of NBA competition for our fans, our teams and everyone associated with our sport, which is why Jontay Porter’s egregious violations of our game rules will result in punishment.” as severe as possible”, Adam Silver. was quoted in a statement issued. “I only know what you all know. What I do know is that Jontay really loves basketball. He was happy to play for the Raptors. I’ve known him all my life. “I know what kind of person he is, he really wants to play basketball and I highly doubt he would do anything that would jeopardize his career,” Jontay’s brother Michael said late last month.

Either way, a lifetime ban followed because Jontay was jeopardizing the integrity of the game and the league. At its core, the NBA is a type of entertainment service or business that depends on its participants playing to the best of their ability. If we eliminate that, the league will literally cease to exist.

Allowing violators to play will not affect league results. Domestic violence is clearly morally worse than the game, but the NBA is a business that acts in its own interest. In addition, there is also a domestic violence policy and punishment recommendations, agreed upon with the players’ union.
