Tim Donaghy accusations that were posted online recently have prompted the NBA to now investigate the charges made by the former NBA ref. Get the deatils here.
The Tim Donaghy accusations are revealed in a tell all book he wrote while in prison, Blowing the Whistle: The Culture of Fraud in the NBA.
The publisher, Random House, has decided against distributing the book. Spokesman Stuart Applebaum released the following statement:
“After a close legal review of the final manuscript of ‘Blowing the Whistle’ by Tim Donaghy, and our independent evaluation of some of the author’s sources and statements, Triumph Books and Random House have decided not to go forward with the book’s publication,” spokesman Stuart Applebaum said in a statement. “Our decision is wholly our own and was made without consultation with any outside parties or individuals.”
Excerpts from the book were leaked online by Deadpin. Definitely an interesting read.
Even though the book deal (which was intended to publish this month) is not moving forward, these latest allegations by the former NBA ref will still be forwarded to Lawrence B. Pedowitz, who originally reviewed the NBA officiating program immediately following the 2007 gambling scandal.
So what are your thoughts on the latest Tim Donaghy accusations? Do you believe them? It makes me sick that this guy still continues to remain in the limelight. Good riddance that his book is no longer being published. Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below. See video of Donaghy below…
