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."

— 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.

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.

The NBA would like yesterday's sentencing of former referee Tim Donaghy to 15 months in prison to put a cap on one of the most unsettling episodes in the league's history. But despite what league officials might wish, that's just not the case. There is still the matter of the results of the league's own investigation - the Pedowitz Report, named after former federal prosecutor Lawrence Pedowitz, who is conducting the probe - into how Donaghy managed to get away with providing inside information to gamblers and evade NBA detection for so long and whether there is any substance to concerns that games refereed by other officials were somehow compromised.

Michael Jordan started settling for fall-away jumpers. Larry Bird missed a dunk in a playoff game. Magic Johnson shoved a referee. And now, David Stern is losing the spring in his legs. The greatest commissioner in the history of American professional sports isn't acting like it lately. On the eve of another NBA season, Stern tossed up another brick, and now we're at the point where we expect it. Two years ago, he ushered in the regular season by instituting a dress code. Last year, it was a new ball that nobody asked for. This year, it's a blanket pardon for all the referees found in the offseason to have violated the rules against gambling.

Pacers forward Danny Granger , the team's leading scorer, will be out for at least four weeks with a foot injury. The team said Tuesday that Granger would miss a minimum of four to six weeks with a torn right plantar fascia, the tissue across the bottom of the foot connecting the heel and toes. The Pacers say Granger won't need surgery and is starting rehabilitation. Granger left the floor in the third quarter of Saturday's game against the Clippers. Granger is averaging 24.4 points a game this season for the Pacers, who have lost nine of their last 10 games following a five-game winning streak.
