NBA’s worry is Donaghy’s believability

Tim Donaghy

There are at least four problems with the book written by disgraced former NBA referee Tim Donaghy.

One, it might never see the light of print since the publisher got cold feet. That means only Donaghy’s family and his friends — if he still has any — will ever see the book. Oh, plus anyone who has access to the Internet, where excerpts of the book can be found.

Two, it was written by a man while he was in prison. So much for credibility. If Donaghy were honest, if he were incapable of telling a lie, he wouldn’t have been in prison in the first place.

Three, the book offers no corroboration of Donaghy’s assertions (no surprise there, since the referees named in the book are still working games).

Four, it is completely believable.

That’s a problem for the NBA. The league can discredit Donaghy easily enough, but that’s what Major League Baseball did to Jose Canseco and ignored him for years until his accusations were virtually all verified. The NBA says it will investigate Donaghy’s charges, as well it should (although it will ultimately prove to be pointless).
