Now that it has happened, you realize with frightening clarity how feasible - and how damning - it would be for referees, umpires or linesmen to be corrupt and how lucky the four major professional sports leagues in our country have been not to have confronted this issue before. The explosive news that Tim Donaghy, who just resigned as an NBA referee after 13 seasons, is being investigated by the FBI for allegedly betting on games he officiated, has rocked the sports world, and justifiably so. Referees are entrusted to uphold the integrity of the game.

— Tim Donaghy says he doesn't bet on basketball anymore. But basketball gambling is what pays his bills these days. Like a recovering alcoholic tending bar for his old drinking buddies, the ex-NBA referee has been breaking down game tape and analyzing point spreads for a shady sports handicapper in Allentown, Pa., known as "Danny B," who uses the information to sell gambling tips to his clients. "Meet the man who generated millions of dollars betting on basketball, as seen on '60 Minutes' and documented by the NBA and FBI," Danny B.'s website, sportsconnectionwins.com, says of Donaghy.

This just in: Tim Donaghy , who bet on games while working with gamblers, insists he didn't fix any. That's the best one since "I never inhaled." In all of Donaghy's attempts to shift the blame to others, get a lighter sentence or sell his book, the things he said in his interview with "60 Minutes" are the most incredible yet. By comparison, his charges that fellow referees were biased or crooked were at least imaginable - although no one has corroborated a single specific, including the gamblers Donaghy worked with.

There had to be clues. The more you look at the Tim Donaghy case, the more you know it's true. Someone knew something was wrong with the former NBA official, who pleaded guilty to a pair of felony charges dealing with gambling. His professional sins were too blatant, too outrageous not to be detected by an organization that should be watching closely. Donaghy admitted he had gambled on NBA games since 2003. He began feeding cell phone tips to gamblers in December 2006. At first, he would get $2,000 if one of his "picks" on a game turned out to be accurate.

West Chester, Pa. -- One thing certain about Tim Donaghy, the former NBA referee who is at the center of a federal sports gambling investigation, is that he left an impression. Longtime friend Frank Capece, a New Jersey attorney, described Donaghy as a "good, decent guy who, if he had a weakness, it's that he wanted to give his family everything." A neighbor of Donaghy's here, where the referee lived until 2005, developed a far different opinion. "Tim could change in a minute," said Pete Mansueto, who filed a lawsuit against his onetime friend of 15 years in which Donaghy was accused of stalking and harassing Mansueto's family.

IT'S THURSDAY NIGHT AT Putty Hill skateland, and a herd of roller-skaters wheel counter-clockwise around the rink. Amidst the mothers, fathers, lovers and teenagers is a troupe of women dressed mostly in black, weaving, bending and falling to their knees. They are the Charm City Roller Girls, and they are practicing. Their leader, Caroline Donaghy, stands at a ringside cluster of lockers, gearing up with some of the crew and watching others circle the rink. Earlier this year, Donaghy put her life on hold and crossed the country hoping to start an all-girl roller derby league in Baltimore.

Rolling out yet another set of sports media notes while denying that the items are being mandated by the league office, no matter what Tim Donaghy says: After the latest round of bombshells by disgraced NBA referee Donaghy, included the allegation that the league told officials to call fouls on a particular player after an owner complained, Jeff Van Gundy had a chance to shout out a big "I told you so." Though Donaghy didn't specify, he clearly was referencing the Houston Rockets' Yao Ming and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.

The lead negotiator and spokesman for the NBA's referees says Tim Donaghy made threats against him, and says the disgraced former official's accusations about his colleagues shouldn't be believed because he is a "compulsive liar." Lamell McMorris also says this was a difficult week for the referees union, with Donaghy appearing on "60 Minutes" and ESPN to give interviews to coincide with the release of his book. They included claims of misconduct among officials that Donaghy had made previously.

Tim Donaghy's release from jail prompted another call to investigate NBA referees who, unlike him, haven't been caught taking bribes … a week after Donaghy's publisher withdrew his book, citing libel concerns … a story that prompted another call to investigate the refs. A figure as imposing as SI.com's Frank Deford , who reviewed the manuscript for Triumph Books, wrote, "I don't believe you can read Donaghy's book without harboring doubt about the integrity of the league's officiating."

News item: The Washington Nationals created a media buzz when a female usher ordered two bare-chested men to put their shirts back on. My take: I've encountered the same kind of narrow-mindedness on occasion. Obviously, the sight of a perfectly sculpted male torso makes some people uncomfortable. News item: The NBA has demanded $1.4 million in restitution from disgraced referee Tim Donaghy. The claim is for salary accepted in bad faith and legal fees incurred by the league investigating the scandal.

The good news is that in a span of three hours Thursday night - from the time David Stern tried again to spin his league's growing officiating controversy to the climax of the greatest comeback in Finals history - the national conversation about the NBA took a refreshing turn toward the positive. The bad news is that the Boston Celtics' epic rally past the Los Angeles Lakers all but assured that the good news would end tonight at Staples Center. After that, or whenever the Celtics wrap up the title, Stern and the NBA not only have to go back to spinning the Tim Donaghy problem, but also have to repair the greatest damage ever inflicted to their image - not their version of Steroidgate, but of the Black Sox scandal.

NEW YORK -- The specter of point shaving rocked the NBA yesterday with revelations that the FBI is investigating referee Tim Donaghy for allegedly betting on games, perhaps including those he officiated.

Donaghy's associates were said to have been affiliated with organized crime, identified by sources as "a bunch of South Jersey gamblers."

The Chicago Bulls won the NBA's draft lottery last night. The Bulls had just a 1.7 percent chance of landing the top choice. Chicago will likely draft star freshmen Michael Beasley, the Kansas State forward who averaged 26.2 points and an NCAA-best 12.4 rebounds, or Derrick Rose, the point guard who carried Memphis within minutes of the national title. The Miami Heat will draft second and the Minnesota Timberwolves will go third. The rest of the top 14 are the Seattle SuperSonics, Memphis Grizzlies, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks, Charlotte Bobcats, New Jersey Nets, Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings, Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors.
