Play Fair Code CEO Severin Moritzer visited former NCAA college basketball star Brandon Johnson in Montenegro recently to record an interview.

Brandon Johnson gives exclusive interview for basketball training module of Play Fair Code

Brandon Johnson is a former NCAA college basketball player from the University of San Diego who rose to the top of the all-time scorer’s list for San Diego during the 2010 season. However, his path to becoming a professional NBA player – his move to the Dakota Wizards (NBA Development League) had already been agreed at the time – was brought to an abrupt halt when he became involved in criminal betting and fixing his own matches. He was arrested by the FBI, and subsequently (in 2013) had to serve a six-month custodial sentence. Johnson returned to the basketball court following his release. After playing for the Crailsheim Merlins in Germany and other European and international clubs, he now plays in the Balkan Basketball League (BBL), for KK Sutjeska Niksic, a top team in the Balkans.

After extensive research, the Play Fair Code succeeded in conducting a detailed interview with Johnson. He describes his past errors in detail in the interview, offering clear messages against match-fixing and betting fraud. These will initially be used as part of the training offensive scheduled to be held with pro players from Austria’s national basketball league, the Admiral Basketball Bundesliga, at the beginning of 2018.
