.@MettaWorldPeace says he was offered $35,000 💸 to fix games in college and because of that he’s not a fan of the new ruling to make sports betting legal. https://t.co/G6FkMZg9fT
World Peace said those kinds of scenarios worry him in the wake of the Supreme Court ending a federal ban on sports betting in most states, essentially opening up an avenue for legal sports betting across the country.
“That’s the problem. When you don’t have no money, they find these kids that ain’t got no money, and they attack them,” he said. “What if I was some kid that was a little scared? ‘OK, I’ll do it,’ right? That’s the problem I have with betting, because these guys that are betting…some of them are bullies, and they’ll force a kid into a situation, and then, when the kid’s trying to go the NBA, they hold it against the kid. They gotta have really harsh rules on people using kids.”
