    NBA Refs

    ESPN - Donaghy docs allege refs altered games, broke league rules - NBA

    I always thought the NBA refs swung games one way or another. This confirms everyone's thoughts. It will be interesting to see what David Stern does with this.

    The NBA is rigged? Get right the hell out of town!!

    And as far as what David Stern will do about it? I can answer in one word: Nothing.

    Glad to see someone admit that Kings/Lakers game was fixed.

    As soon as they said what year it happened, you had to know the series they were talking about. I remember watching that series and could only wish that it wasn't as obvious as I thought it was.

    That series was handed to the Lakers.

    Think about how much ESPN, ABC, the NBA gain by having these series go 7.

    Re: NBA Refs

    Yeah, I really didn't like the early 2000's Lakers, well I still don't :).

    I couldn't believe that Portland blew that 20 point 4th quarter lead in game 7 of the 2000 conf. finals...but that one I won't blame the refs for.

    Don't hate me if I don't exactly trust a referee who is a convicted felon...

    I second that. Desperate men do desperate things.

    Don't underestimate David Stern. He will likely come out with a new LeBron James promotion, or maybe even a new corporate deal to promote the Kobe.

    In the end, we may learn that convicted felon Tim Donaghy has more integrity than the NBA.

    You don't have to trust a convicted felon but all you have to do is watch that Kings-Lakers series and you will know something fishy was going on.

    This better be a huge story...although the NBA will sweep it under the rug I'm sure.

    Re: NBA Refs

    This might explain why the refs always favored the stars.

    Stern said that the games in question have already been fully investigated by the FBI. Donaughy is reaching here.

    I don't know which is more of a strech...believing Donaughy or believing David Stern.
