NBA Betting Scandal

Anyone see this report by Joe Amorosino of 7News in Boston this morning?  It states that 13 referees were involved in the Tim Donaghy betting scandal with Donaghy being the king of the group.  I believe every word of it.  I have always thought that NBA games never seemed completely on the up and up.  Ever heard the saying “everyone makes a run” when referring to NBA games?  Is that because teams get hot and cold or because the refs were evening things out?  I played basketball and I know teams go hot and cold over the course of a game, but why is it that for 90% of NBA games all you have to do is watch the final 5 minutes because you know it will be close?  Granted the talent level is closer but this just does not happen at other levels of basketball.

If you haven’t had the chance, read the excerpts from Donaghy’s book on DeadSpin.  Pretty damning stuff for the NBA if you ask me.

In the words of Tommy Heinsohn “THESE GUYS ARE RIDICULOUS!”
