Great Links!

As not too much is going on in the league, there’s not a whole lot to report on. Here’s a little taste of what everyone’s saying:

Tim Donaghy. Honestly, I’m sick of hearing about the guy. We all knew he was guilty. Check out The Feed’s article about Donaghy:

The Next Stage Of Donaghy-Induced Pain

Gilbert Arenas has posted another article on his blog. To me, he is hands down the best blogger out there. Still keeping it real. Check out End of the Bench’s article:

Did Gilbert Arenas Pay for the Whole Wedding?

Rumours are still circulating that Mike Bibby might be traded to Miami. I don’t think it’s worth it for Sac, as they won’t be gaining much. Check out the Basketball Blog’s article:

Will the Kings and Heat make a Mike Bibby trade?

Little Mark Cuban apparently got in a fight 15 years ago. It’s pretty funny article when you picture Cuban in the situation. Check it out at his blog, Blog Maverick:

My Last Fist Fight

Brandan Wright of the Warriors has his own blog. I love hearing about new players trying to keep up Agent Zero. Check out Golden State of Mind’s article:

Brandan Write?

After all the craziness that is going down with Tim Donaghy, I couldn’t help but chuckle with all the other Rasheed Wallace fans.  If you can remember, several years ago, Sheed was suspended for over a week for threatening a ref in the parking lot.  It just so happened it was none other than Mr. Tim Donaghy.  Now, like many other Sheed fans, we love him because he’s so cocky and confident.  You always feel like he will always get his own.  This time, Sheed got a little payback.  Some great articles about the story at:

I just want to point out that Tim Donaghy is not the only referee out there betting or gambling.  I have always felt these guys are very corrupt.  They don’t make anywhere near the amount of the players, yet they have so much more control of the game.  The odds of getting caught are very slim, as there are people out there that put their life into these scandals.  If I were a ref, I’d probably be in on a game or two as well.  If you asked me before Tim Donaghy was the main suspect to the crime, my money would have been on Joey Crawford.  The way he t’d up Tim Duncan for laughing was so suspicious in my mind.  I laughed for a while, tried to figure out why, but then I got very suspicious.  To be honest, I’m not too familiar with Donaghy, but I’m sure within the next couple days, the video editing guys will be posting many clips on YouTube of him making weirdo calls, and we’ll all be hitting ourselves and saying, “man, how did we never realize?”  The only prediction I bring to the table today is that this isn’t the last of the crack-down in corrupt refereeing.  You’re next, Joey Crawford!!!!
