WOWZERS

NBA keeps taking losses. this is disgusting.


you know, whats totally sad is the fact that the major sport that gets the LEAST ratings and love in the states, the NHL, is probably the cleanest league top to bottom. all the other 3 sports have MASSIVE problems that really taint their sports (ok nfl not so much they just have a huge thug problem). NHL is ridiculous entertainment if ppl just gave it a chance, and they dont use drugs or cheat!

Ex-NBA referee Tim Donaghy told the feds two refs fixed the outcome of one playoff series - and that officials were told not to eject star players from games for fear of hurting ticket sales.

The bombshell allegations are contained in a court document filed Tuesday by Donaghy's lawyer. It describes the “inner workings" of the NBA in which top league executives used referees to manipulate games.

Donaghy, who pleaded guilty in Brooklyn Federal Court to charges of betting on games he officiated, told FBI agents “league officials would tell referees that they should withhold calling technical fouls on certain star players because doing so hurt ticket sales and television ratings," the document said.

Donaghy claims he was told that two refs who were “company men” acting in the interest of the NBA conspired to extend a playoff series in 2002 to a seventh game.

The referees allegedly ignored flagrant fouls committed by the team that needed to win. They also reportedly called "made-up fouls" against the other team which led to the ejection of two of their players. The team favored by the refs won that night and the next game to win the series.

The document does not name the teams. The Nets were in that playoff series, losing the championship finals to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Donaghy also claimed a supervising referee told refs that an unidentified NBA executive did not want them to call technical fouls on star players or boot them from the game.

Donaghy told feds the league reprimanded a referee who disobeyed that edict in January 2000 and ejected an unnamed star player from a game in the first quarter.

Lawyer John Lauro filed the four-page letter to Federal Judge Carol Amon because none of the information was included in the government’s letter to the judge seeking leniency for Donaghy when he is sentenced next month.

Lauro has gone to war against Brooklyn federal prosecutors for offering plea deals to Donaghy's betting accomplices that give them less time than the disgraced ref, despite his extensive cooperation.

Donaghy claims referees have accepted autographs, free merchandise and meals from team coaches and managers. He told probers one referee used a team's practice facility to exercise and another played tennis with an NBA coach.

"These activities were against NBA rules, indeed, such inappropriate relationships could influence the outcome of games," Lauro wrote.

Lauro said he withheld the names of the teams, referees and league officials because the feds may still investigate the allegations.

I really am not surprised ive had this feeling for about 8-10 years now that the NBA has been trying to fix games. Sundays fiasco confirmed it 100% for me.

Damn i thought this sh*t with Donaghy would just go away since we haven't heard much about it since last summer,this might be a long term problem for the nba and yes it's gotta be the Lakers/Kings series that was the only series that went 7 that year,i mean there's still some people who thought that series was won by the kings especially Game 6,wonder what people are gonna think with the lakers/celtics series going on now

U dumbass there was nothing Stern could do about that... He made the rule and he had suspended other players for doing just as much and even les than Amare...

If he didnt suspend him he would have had a lawsuit against his a.ss from the Player's a.ssociation in less than an hour from the other players who were suspended the same way... Especially when the rules specifically say you cant leave the vicinty of the bench... What is he gone say normally i would suspend him but he is a superstar?

No dumbass that was all in the news there was no way of not suspending Amare
shut your stupid a.ss up because if your dumb a.ss remembered everyone wanted him to fu*king ignore the rule thats what i said. Do you suffer from mental lapses can you remember a year ago


get your head out of your a.ss and read what i said again. This is funny because all the band wagon kings fans are resurfacing after that soft a.ss team blew the series

e thuggin a.ss mother fu*ker

Donaghy also said refs broke league rules by routinely fraternizing with players, coaches and team management and that the resulting inappropriate relationships may have influenced the outcomes of games. He claims one general manager in 2004 made a game-day phone call to referees to encourage them to call more personal fouls against an opponent.

Donaghy claims referees have accepted autographs, merchandise and meals from team representatives, according to the Daily News. He said one official used a team's facility to exercise and another played tennis with an NBA coach.


there's an article with more information. @ teams being in on it too

until u give me names, and have sources, i don't care about any of this. Yeah i'm sure the Nets could have beaten the Lakers, if Kobe and Shaq didn't play, and the Kings lost because they lost, one or 2 calls don't influence a game. U gotta suck it up, and play basketball and execute ur game, put the ball in the basket.
