Tim Donaghy’s Media Tour Begins

Now that’s found a publisher for his tell-all book (no doubt much to David Stern’s chagrin), Donaghy is going to a big part of our lives for at least a little while: “The book, now titled ‘Personal Foul: A First-Person Account of the Scandal That Rocked the NBA’ is set to be pre-released to select outlets on Friday, December 4th and will be available in book stores nationwide for Christmas. Tim Donaghy was interviewed by 60 Minutes for an episode that will air this Sunday the 6th. The interview and the book will finally answer many of the questions about his gambling, the NBA games that were affected and the involvement with the New York Mafia.”

    If he gets popped over the next few months I won’t even be suprised.

    Seems like the book has changed somewhat significantly. Previously it was reported that he was talking about other refs who also took bribes and how the league actually wanted to make sure certain teams/players got some advantages for rating etc. Now it seems more like he’s just talking about himself and not the broader level of corruption.

    I’m glad if Donaghy can get this thing to the maintstream, so the other fans could see this as well although i doubt they would believe it.

    I hope he keeps the NY Mafia out of the book- might be his last tour!

    Nice, Just read that Donaghy’s book has been picked up for publication. Great. Nice, Donaghy will discuss everything but the real story. The story The NBa covered up and Donaghy never admitted to…Which of course is how he fixed games that he referee’d. We’ll never hear him discuss that. Interstingly there’s a new novel about to be released, Steve Alper’s book, The Steam, which is about a sports gambler who links up with a corrupt NBA referee. The book is being called, you got it, “the book the nba doesn’t want you to read.” My girlfried works in films and actually got me a copy of it. It’s a great read and funny as hell at times. It also truly tells the story about a gambler and crooked NBA refereee. The story you won’t get from Donaghy’s book since he’ll obviously never confess to something that would put him back in jail. So essentially if you want to read a book about a crooked NBA ref fixing games, The Steam is the way to go.
