Former NBA ref Tim Donaghy pleads guilty on two felony charges in a Federal court today. He faces up to 25 years in prison, fined 500,000 and 30,000 in restitution. The NBA is really in a bad situation, when the new season starts it's going to be hard to focus on the new players, traded superstars, because you'll be so distracted by a call that you think is incorrect or just complete lost of trust for the league! The ratings will probably decrease tremendously and the hype that usually surrounds the NBA Finals will have a black cloud over it's coveted prize!
I'm not trying to be negative, just giving an objective opinion.
