Good stuff from S&P here and Britt over at the Rake about the Donaghy/NBA mess, but really, when it comes down to NBA refs, money seems like it's been an issue before. Don't forget about the bunch who got nailed for tax evasion by the IRS. Of course, there are those who thought that was an unfair charge, but the opportunity to make money beyond a referee's salary has always been tempting, given the amount of coin spread around in this league.
I'm dating myself here, but David Stern reminds me a lot of Claude Rains in the classic movie "Casablanca". In the end of that movie, right and justice prevailed. This situation may have a few more scenes to go before it truly ends.
