Disgraced NBA referee Tim Donaghy to appear in CNBC documentary

18 Comments

Tim Donaghy was an NBA referee who used inside information to bet on games.

That was the innocent explanation; the more damning one involved him making disingenuous calls that would influence games so that the bets he made would end up with favorable results.

Donaghy eventually served time in prison for his actions, but has remained in the gambling underworld ever since. He picks games professionally, and has attempted to remain in the spotlight to make a living off of his NBA excommunication.

This latest documentary from CNBC doesn’t appear to be any different. While we’ll have to wait until the entire thing debuts¬†Thursday, May 28 at 10p ET/PT to see for sure, this teaser clip sure appears as though he’s simply giving us more of the same.
