Another Item in Deadspin's Favor: Blowing the Doors off the NBA?

Well, I'm not sure how much you can trust Tim Donaghy, but I have the feeling you can believe at least SOME of this article in Deadspin. With nothing to lose, he tells all, throwing several refs and the NBA's top brass under the bus. This supposedly was to be published next month, but now will not as the league has threatened a lawsuit. It's a must read.

I read this entire article last night and was equal parts riveted and depressed.

You can never know how much of a book like this is made up or embellished to make more money or recover an outcast's image. But it has the ring of truth to me.

Refs are human beings, capable of holding grudges, playing favorites, and being selfish. And it makes an already boring (to me) NBA a game that I might never care about again.

That's not supposed to be a strong statement, like "I'm giving up the NBA because I'm so disgusted." Truthfully, I almost never watch it. Now I just have fewer reasons to give it a look again. Ugh.

If this can happen in basketball, why would we think other major sports are immune from it?
