Nets Ban Gambling on Team Flights

The Wizards' locker room gun situation began with a game of bourré on a team flight, and gambling among players is an acknowledged problem across the NBA. So Rod Thorn and Bruce Ratner got together and decided to ban gambling on the team plane. Thorn says that the Nets have never had a problem with gambling, but "Why take a chance on something like that happening?" Players don't seem to mind.
