Generally, agents help players maximize their earnings in professional sports. However, an NBA Player’s Association found that one agency member made roughly $42,000 worth of unauthorized charges on an unidentified player’s credit card, according to Yahoo! Sports.

After a National Basketball Players Association probe into the unauthorized use of a player’s personal credit card, an employee at a prominent player representation agency, Christian Dawkins of ASM Sports, was terminated, league sources told The Vertical.

In the summary of an NBPA investigation that circulated through a memo to the union’s membership on Thursday afternoon, Dawkins was discovered to have used an Uber account connected to the personal credit card of an unidentified NBA player between July 2015 and May 2016, running up approximately $42,000 in charges.

According to the report, Dawkins charged the player’s credit card for a whopping 1,865 Uber rides, almost all of which were without the player’s permission.

The Yahoo! report also says that nobody else at ASM Sports knew of the conduct until the probe, and that the player was reimbursed.

The biggest unanswered question, of course: who the hell takes 1,865 Uber rides in an eleven-month period? That averages out to more than five per day! How is this possible?

Hopefully they get to the bottom of that at some point.
