That doesn't answer my question, genius.

We all know he pleaded guilty. Is there any evidence of any other referee fixing games? Is there?

No, there is not. Give it up. You people that think any questionable call was a fix are fu*king stupid. You people really are. Idiots.

Yesterday I was watching the Cubs/Cardinals baseball game. The umpire missed a call at the plate and had questionable called third strikes. The game is rigged right?

No, people have to level their expectations. All umpires/refs/officials miss calls in all sports. In the NBA it is the most magnified, and arguably, with no instant replay, the calls are the hardest to make as the game is so fast.

Do you know how many bad calls are made in an NBA game? We need better reffing in general. Those games were probably rigged. Whether there was money on the line or not, the 1st one shows the refs wanted the Cavs to at least look good.

Can't believe some of the blind loyalty being displayed here. What do you think that Donaghy made a plea with the fed to reveal 20 refs that were involved strictly in Casino, non-NBA games. The feds don't care about that ****. When they build a case they are looking to go deeper into it and catch others that were involved in similar activity in exchange for a lesser sentence on the person they catch red-handed. Anyone that knows basic law knows that. I'm simply putting out examples of horrendous officiating. Not just Kobe but the Suns and Pistons (two teams I hate). Bottom line is I think every team in the NBA should get equal treatment and nothing is more grievous than refs betting on games. Is absolute proof there yet? Nope. Does tat mean I can't make my own evaluations on different games that I think are fixed. Nope. I'm not telling you to agree with me but look at the clips, decide for yourself. At the very least these games were horribly officiated throughout.

This whole post reeks of ASSumption.

You need to wait for the facts to come out.

Co-sign.

The league has bad officiating in general so you can't be saying every game that has bad calls is fixed.

We all knew what ever team Bron ended up on would be babied by the refs. Kobe stripped Murray on that last play too.


I have to say though I think Kobe deserves to get screwed like how he got all the calls for years. This is too much though.

Yes, I realize it's hard to ref an NBA game. But at least in the NFL they have teams of refs that are harshly scrutinized when they make a bad call. These teams of refs have to actually make a come-up similar to anybody trying to make a name for themselves in sports, movies or in life. The NBA loves to keep the same referees for years and years. It needs to change.

The Cavs vs Lakers was the most obvious bs game.
Once again, get in with new generations of refs.

I think every NBA game has been rigged for the last 15 years.

ppl comon, there's only one crooked ref in the nba???

NO, you guys have no idea of the obscenity behind big money sports if you think theres only one crooked ref

one got caught, but theres more...
If they findout there's a group of crooked refs fixing games for a longtime, the whole business will be done--- so of course they'll say theres only one and he only fixed a few games... No ppl, theres many if them and many games were fixed

The leagues policy for refs is NO gambling. What he turned over to attorneys about the 20 co-employees was betting on the super-bowl. Not fixing games. Not spread padding. Not giving roster info to bookies before a game. It was betting on the Superbowl.
