You may have heard the NBA's had some problems with gambling lately. Well, you know, gambling on games is different than actual gambling. The only thing the two have in common is, well, gambling.
Good news from the NBA's home away from home -- Las Vegas. On August 11, NBA legends Julius Erving and Spud Webb will compete in a charity poker tournament against current players Jason Kidd and Tracy McGrady at the Mirage "high-limit lounge." That's from the official press release.
Proceeds will be donated to two charities and, hey, you know what makes it even better?
Jose Canseco will be there. Yep, an official part of the event.
And the NBA wonders why, from time to time, people suggest it might have image problems.
