Update since my earlier post on the NBA referee scandal and the Phoenix Suns....
SAJU points to an article in Slate regarding the type of gambling that implicated referee Tom Donaghy. Short summary, odds are that it involved point spreads or over/under and not win/loss.
Bob Young of the AZ Republic reviewed Game 3 of the Suns-Spurs playoff series, the one that Donaghy worked and the one I mentioned in my post, and found Dongahy's role in the outcome peripheral.
So I think the solution to this is to wait and see what happens. Donaghy is supposedly cooperating with investigators and NBA Commissioner David Stern has stated as of now it looks like there was only 1 corrupt referee....
.... but we'll see
