This is going to change the sports landscape in this country.  Totally on board with it.

BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court rules that federal ban on state-sanctioned sports betting is unconstitutional. Decides case in favor of New Jersey. Floodgates now officially open for other states to allow sports betting. #RIPPASPA

The worst thing is that now everything will be interpreted with betting in mind.

Like the whole thing with NBA trying to fix the draft or play off games in order to get more profit wasn't enough

The Federal classification of marijuana as a controlled substance narcotic should also be overthrown, IMO.

Tons of betting already, this just lowers the barrier and allows individual owners to get more money. Casino/Stadium pairing are going to be more and more common.

Adam Silver has been pushing for this for awhile, because he wants the betting that is going to occur no matter what to be regulated and for the NBA to get a piece of the action.
