NBA Commissar Supports Fantasy-sport


The National Basketball Association (NBA) commissar Adam Silver supported the daily fantasy-sport in the United States and worldwide.

Adam Silver who is authorized representative of the National Basketball Association (NBA) recently said, that he did like the fact that Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) were held during the South By Southwest festival that was taking place last week in Texas, the USA.

The fast developing industry

Lately, the US fantasy industry has been developing at impressive pace and going through some difficulties at the same time. Thing is, that authorities in many States claim fantasy sports to be gambling and applying corresponding laws towards them. They seem to want to slice and dice the whole industry and make it seem what it really is not. So Silver said that proclaiming Daily Fantasy Sports equal to gambling is completely wrong.

‘We fully support regulation of the fantasy sports, because we also believe that things must be clear. I believe that fantasy is the game of skill and nothing else. But let the authorities decide on that.’ – said the commissar.

More comments of the commissar

Silver also suggests, that acknowledging the fantasy sport to be a worldwide phenomenon will happen even sooner than one might have thought it would. In the United States, the speed of this process will directly depend on who will be elected as the President and on what party will have more seats in the Congress.

Let us notice, that currently in the United States they are debating on possible legalization of online casinos in several States. If this happens, such leading online gambling software providers as Playtech, Microgaming and RTG will be sure to come back to this market very shortly.
