An Inside Perspective On Point Shaving

Not long after we started a links page we linked to Big Dan Kreft's
site
.  It was pretty interesting at the time - a 7' bald Northwestern
center who was willing to put his hoops life online. 

Anyway, a while back he put up a board, and someone
asked him about his teammates who were convicted of pointshaving.
It's an
interesting thread. At one point his Mom jumps in just to say she's proud of
him.

The weird part is that he says everyone on the team knew they were
gambling and had bookies, though no one thought they were fixing games. 
One of his posters challenges him on the point. It's pretty interesting stuff. We admire his willingness to discuss it.
