Summary:

The NBA’s New York Knicks won two championships in the early 1970s but fell on hard times by the early 1980s, and documents released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation described an investigation into allegations that three players had shaved points on behalf of a cocaine dealer who usually bet $300 on games but abruptly started making – and winning - $10,000 bets instead. However, without additional evidence or confessions, the FBI closed the case in 1986.
