the thing with fraud, at least i feel, is everyone has a price, whether they will admit it or not. everyone has a price. so fraud is always possible but i don't see the incentive for the NBA in this scenario, especially when the reputation of the league is on the line. i can see fraud in the form of accepting under-the-table payments for TV contracts or apparel endorsements, but to keep a shitty team in a shitty market afloat? I don't see it.
