Answering commonly-asked questions about the 2003-07 NBA betting scandal

I’ve researched the 2003-07 NBA Betting Scandal and related persons/events since 2007. During my numerous media appearances over the years, I’ve entertained many of the same questions repeatedly concerning the public construction of the scandal (i.e., how and why the conventional wisdom/dominant narrative was formed). I thought it might be prudent to offer my insights into these experiences and attempt to explain why, in my opinion, so many people in the media and in the public continue getting the story wrong. Importantly, I argue the experiences I’ve had discussing the findings in  Gaming the Game: The Story Behind the NBA Betting Scandal and the Gambler Who Made It Happen apply to much of our public discourse on plenty of matters arguably more consequential than the betting scandal.
