SOME NBA FANS were dismayed to learn that they could not place a bet on the finals at the sports books in Caesars, Paris, Bally’s, Harrah’s, Rio, Flamingo or the Imperial Palace. Last year Harrah’s chairman and CEO Gary Loveman acquired 2.4 percent of the Celtics. To eliminate any conflict of interest, the NBA required Harrah’s not to accept money on any Boston games.
