NBA Referee Gambling and Point Shaving Scandal: Timmy “Da Whistle” Donaghy gets popped?!

by

Look, when this story first broke we had no idea which NBA ref got in over his head with his own illegal gambling and then had to answer to Paulie and Christopher.

But if we had to guess one ref who did have the gambling jones AND was ignant enough to actually throw games for other cats like it was 1947 and not 2007, then our own speculative money was on the only known NBA Thug rockin’ a ref’s uniform, Joey Crawford of inexplicable technical fouls for Tim Duncan fame. But alas, it’s this slug, Tim Donaghy instead. Dammit!

NBA referee Tim Donaghy is under investigation by the FBI for allegations that he bet on games that he officiated over the past two seasons and that he made calls affecting the point spread in games for the benefit of his mob associates. Is that all?

And yes folks, Ole Timmy Whistles did resign once he got word of the investigation. Truth be told, we feel for the guy. I can only imagine how tough it is to have Kobe in your face asking you why you just made that completely inexplicable call, knowing FULL WELL that as you see Kobe’s lips move, all you’re thinking about is the threat from Tony Soprano‘s to make you Bobby Bacala’s “popped cherry” murder if you don’t either get him his money or fix this game tonight…. Yikes.

Awww, I just read that the 40 year old Donaghy is a Villanova grad and was involved with NBA Reads Program..nice. There’s a role model for the kiddies. One thing is for sure, this puts a decisive bullet in that NBA team in Vegas idea. Again, ugly.
