Jarret Jack knew about Mayweather's bet on Heat game
It's no secret that boxer Floyd Mayweather likes to gamble. He famously placed a $3 million bet on the Michigan-Alabama game in the first week of college football, and days later he placed a $200,000 bet on the second half line in the Dallas Cowboys game. He's also no stranger to betting on basketball and winning at the last second. He placed a $275,000 on the Spurs beating the Lakers back on Nov. 13, and he won it on a buzzer beater. But when he placed a bet on the Warriors to beat the Heat, Mayweather just came off looking like a genius. However, there are really two stories to take out of this. First, the Mayweather hit is large again; but secondly Jarrett Jack basically said on live television that he was aware of sports gambling heading into his game against the Heat. Now, Jack didn't say Mayweather was paying him, but given the NBA's not-so-cozy history with on-court gambling scandals, David Stern isn't going to be tickled over Jack's little sound bite.
