San Antonio Spurs veteran Tim Duncan won a $100 bet on Wednesday night after he made a three-pointer in the lopsided win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Duncan made just his second 3-pointer in the last two years in the 39-point destruction of OKC, and it was certainly a bonus on a night on which the Spurs dominated their Western Conference rivals from start to finish.
However, there was another personal bonus for the 38-year-old as his girlfriend, Vanessa Macias, revealed on Twitter that he won $100 on the shot after betting with his best friend from college that he would make a shot from beyond the arc either in the game itself or this season.
While it all appears to be an innocent and fun story at first, there have been certain media outlets who have questioned whether or not this is allowed under NBA rules.
Fortunately for Duncan, it shouldn’t result in any disciplinary action as not only does the bet have to be influential on the outcome of the game, but it is also up to the Commissioner’s discretion as to whether any violation of the policy has taken place.
Given that this is just a friendly bet over a three-pointer rather than the result coupled with Silver’s general attitude so far as Commissioner, it is highly unlikely that this will go anywhere.
Nevertheless, it might be worth Duncan reminding his girlfriend not to get him in trouble in future with such posts…
