Maverick Carter, manager of LeBron James, tells federal law enforcement he bet on NBA games through an illegal bookie: Report
quote:

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Maverick Carter, the business manager for former Cavaliers forward LeBron James, told federal investigators he had bet on multiple NBA games through an illegal bookie according to Gus Garcia-Roberts of the Washington Post.

Carter spoke to agents in November of 2021 as part of their investigation into former minor league baseball player Wayne Nix, who pled guilty to charges related to running an illegal off-shore betting business.


According to Garcia-Roberts, Carter placed bets on 20 different NBA and football games in the course of a year, but that the bets have “nothing to do” with James. Carter also reportedly told agents that he “could not remember placing any bets on the Lakers.”



A spokesman for Carter and James told Garcia-Roberts that Carter was interviewed once for the investigation into Nix and was not charged.

NBA players as well as team and league officials are not allowed to bet on NBA games. However, business managers are under no such rule.

Carter and James have been longtime friends going back to their days of growing up together in Akron. Carter has been James’ business partner since 2006.

Now seems like a good time to remind everyone that this guy only has the job he does is because a guy little to no formal education liked the t-shirts he aggressively tried to sell.

You’re confusing Maverick Carter with Rich Paul, I believe.

Yeah Rich Paul used to buy jerseys in Atlanta and sell them out of his trunk in Cleveland. That's how he met Lebron, by selling him a jersey.

Carter was the asshat who put together Lebron's "Decision" fiasco.

Pretty good argument against him.
