Q: Will the players get a cut? Brian Windhorst: Absolutely. Sponsorships fall under basketball-related income (BRI), and the players get 50 percent of that money. Also, in the recent collective bargaining agreement (CBA), the union negotiated that income from gambling falls under BRI and will be shared with the players. This is the new vein of revenue for the league. Q: What impact will that have on the salary cap? And when? Brian Windhorst: After a modest increase in the cap this season, the NBA is projecting the salary cap to inflate by $7 million in 2019. The league hasn’t explained the reason, but some of that projection might include some anticipated new gambling-related revenue. It will probably take a year or two for states to get operations fully up and running before possible ancillary money flows to the NBA.

“This is my f—ing house!” Stephen Curry cursed in celebration after ending his frustration. Stunned NBA fans worldwide read his lips, and fans at Oracle Arena saw the replay on the JumboTron. The devout Christian got caught up in the emotion of the moment but was apologetic after his Golden State Warriors’ 126-85 blowout win against the Houston Rockets in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday. “If they ever thought I was perfect, then they got the wrong message to begin with,” said Curry, the favorite active athlete among kids 12-17, according to a 2017 ESPN Sports Poll. “I try to do the right things all the time. I have an awareness of who I represent on the court. In that moment, I fell a little short. I have to try to do better next time.”
Potential No. 1 pick in the 2018 Draft Luka Doncic won the EuroBasket playing under a Serbian coach: Igor Kokoskov. The newly appointed Phoenix Suns head coach isn’t the only Serbian that the Real Madrid star would play with. “Hard question… We all know who is Zeljko (Obradovic), and then there is Sasha Djordjevic. There are a lot of good coaches. And for Serbian players, I think (Bogdan) Bogdanovic. We are friends, he is a great player, I could learn a lot [from him],” Doncic said to Serbian website Telegraf.rs when asked if there are any Serbian coaches or players he’d choose to work with.
