    According to the grand jury indictment, the defendants allegedly engaged in a widespread scheme from at least 2017 up to around 2020 to defraud the NBA Players' Health and Welfare Benefit Plan by submitting fake reimbursement claims for medical and dental services that were never actually rendered.

    Those allegedly fraudulent claims totaled about $3.9 million, from which the defendants got about $2.5 million in fraudulent proceeds, the indictment alleges.

    They should probably arrest the rest of the 08 Celtics just to be safe

    The Pistons PbP announcer used to love him some Will Bynum back in the day. Screamed every time he did something.

    Truly the dumbest shit.

    “In particular instances, the co-conspirators submitted false claims that reflected the same reported procedures on the same teeth on the same dates,” Strauss said. “For example, three of the charged defendants, Glen Davis, Anthony Wroten and (Tony) Allen, reportedly had root canals on the same six teeth on April 30, 2016, and crowns on the same six teeth on May 11, 2016. Wroten and Allen, each also reportedly also had root canals on the same 13 teeth on Sept. 6, 2018, and crowns on the same 12 teeth on Oct. 2, 2018.”

    Tony Allen has already paid back the bulk of his money, at least. I hope his defense in the court is as smothering as his on the court

    Sorry if I’m misunderstanding, dudes who made millions split up all of $4m between the 18 of them? I get that athletes mismanage their money during their playing careers sometimes but dayum, at least risk it all for a little more than that.

    Is Kyrie even healthy? I figured they use this opportunity for some quality load management and he’s back with a shot in January.

    if he isn’t getting shot now, he won’t magically decide in january

    he’s probably holding out hope that the mandates are dropped

    Wiggins is just as fucking stupid and he magically decided to get it because he likes money. I think Kyrie likes money as well but he’s always broken so honestly I just assumed he was hurt still. I don’t remember his time frame or injury, just that he’s a time bomb all around. Point is I’m not arguing the sanity of someone who wants to get a shot, that’s not a debate in my head.

    Every competing city should do this to force Kyrie from playing them. Lakers have just blocking him from the Finals. Respect.

    This is so annoying. Just enabling the anti vax stance. Like I said nets go above and beyond trying to accommodate their stars when sometimes you just have to put your foot down.

    It will be difficult to pull that off since the actual games would be considered a large gathering.
