With gambling becoming more prevalent and major sports leagues working with sportsbooks, the focus on statistics has intensified.
NBA star Kevin Durant recently addressed fans complaining about their sports betting parlays, emphasizing that when he contributes to their success, they don’t show appreciation. Durant expressed frustration with fans blaming players when their parlays don’t succeed.

The message conveyed is that complaining to wealthy athletes about losing money may fall on deaf ears, and refraining from betting altogether might be the wisest approach in sports gambling.
