Why are so many people quick to believe Tim Donaghy when he says the NBA has helped to further playoff series'. Don't get me wrong it's bad but, honestly what has this guy done to gain any credibility? Give us some proof that this was actually happening and then maybe I'll think about believing you.
Donaghy, at least to me is taking the Jose Canseco approach. He's throwing other people under the bus to make himself look better. The thing is Donaghy has no proof that this actually happened besides numbers from games that just happen to back up his claim. He says NBA pushed the Sacramento-Lakers series to a 7th game...and now all of a sudden people are becoming outraged by it again.
If this is true...it's makes the NBA look awful. People are already saying they don't trust the NBA anymore. Does't that speak to how easily persuaded people can be? Fans are willing to believe pretty much anything this guy says. But, honestly I can't believe more aren't taking the he's just a disgruntled employee approach. Donaghy doesn't want to be the only fish to fry..so he's going to drag down as many people as he possibly can.
People are going to say whatever they want. I know that Donaghy was underoath but, at least to me. he looks even worst to me. He's the guy who believes that if he's going down then he's taking as many people with him as possible. The NBA shouldn't be worried about this at all. The league has to keep saying that this was one guy doing this by himself.
Thanks for reading.
