Tweet Beat...Andrew Bogut Gambling Style

Milwaukee Buck Andrew Bogut continues to push the edge of the envelope via Twitter (see previous "Tweet Beat" from December 2009). Bogut tweeted at roughly 11 a.m. on Thursday, February 4, 2010: "About to fill my pockets up playing poker on this long flight to nyc. Alllllll in."

May be I am overreacting but Bogut better choose his words carefully in light of Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton getting suspended by the NBA for the rest of the season (source). The suspension stemmed from a disagreement over a gambling debt incurred on a team flight that escalated to both players bring guns to the locker room to "settle the debts".

Bogut is a fun loving guy but NBA Commissioner David Stern is not taking NBA player gambling lightly. As a result of the Arenas/Crittenton incident some teams have moved to outlaw gambling on team flights. If Bogut and the rest of the Bucks want to gamble on team flights they better do it without broadcasting it to the world.
