Breaking: LeBron James Manager Makes Shocking Admission

In a stunning revelation, LeBron James's manager Maverick Carter admitted to placing illegal bets worth tens of thousands of dollars on NBA games.

The admission was made to federal investigators in a 2021 investigation into an illegal bookmaker who pleaded guilty last year to running a massive offshore gambling ring and filing false tax returns.

“In 2021 and before 38 states and the District of Columbia legalized sports betting, Maverick Carter was interviewed a single time by federal law enforcement regarding their investigation into Wayne Nix,” read a statement from a LeBron handler. “Mr. Carter was not the target of the investigation, cooperated, was never charged, and never contacted again on the matter.” It added that the situation had nothing to do with LeBron James directly. 

The NBA has declined to comment on the matter, which was reported on Thursday by The Washington Post.
