The media has speculated and sports fans have debated, but until now no one has known the real story.
Containing never-before-seen documentation and correspondence between the league office, referees, coaches, players and owners...
Personal Foul is the decisive book that reveals exactly what was done and how it all happened.
Which games were affected and how ? Is it true that referees targeted particular players ? Just how much did the NBA know and when ? How did the mafia get involved ?
Personal Foul answers all of these questions and more. Thrilling and poignant,
Personal Foul takes the reader on the journey of one man wrestling his own demons and shines a light on a culture of gambling and "directive" officiating in the NBA that promises to change the way sports fans view the game forever.

Friday Press Clippings:
'Blowing the Whistle: The Culture of Fraud in the NBA', by Tim Donaghy
The Book The NBA Doesn't Want You To Read
"... "Blowing the Whistle: The Culture of Fraud in the NBA" was slated for publication later this month.
The book was to have covered Donaghy's experience as an NBA referee and the events leading up to his conviction on federal wire fraud charges. ..."
"... During the process of editing and vetting the manuscript, which Triumph received from Donaghy in the spring, Random House and its imprint made the joint decision to cancel the book out of "concerns over potential liability," according to an e-mail from a Triumph representative. ..."
"... The NBA was aware of the book but had not received or reviewed a copy.
Berdan said there is "legitimate interest" from five publishers to continue with the book.
Donaghy, 42, remains behind bars for a probation violation following his 15-month prison sentence. ..."
"... Commissioner David Stern has called Donaghy's allegations "baseless," saying he tried to implicate others to secure a lighter sentence.
Donaghy said he took part in the betting operation because he was a gambling addict.
He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to engage in wire fraud and transmitting betting information through interstate commerce in the tips-for-payoffs scheme. ..."

Coaches Digest: Why basketball is a 5 on 5 sport ?
Why basketball is a 5 on 5 sport ?
Why we never play just 4 on 4 game or 6 on 6 ? Why it's an impair sport ?
Actually, the first game wasn't 5 on 5. When Dr. Naismith invented the game, the entire court was filled.
There are stories of games with as many as 60 people playing at the same time. The dribble did not exist.
Basketball is a game that slowly evolved into its present form. In the beginning, it more closely resembled indoor soccer - except that it was played by passing with the hands instead of feet.
Women originally played 6 on 6 with with the floor divided in three parts. There were two guards, two forwards and two centers. Guards never shot in the game, and the forwards, could dribble only twice. However, the defense couldn't swipe at the ball unless it was in the lane.
You can see how the position names we use today are based on that early configuration.
Crazy rules, but it produced some outstanding basketball. For more details, go to Granny Basketball where this style is still played today.
Dr. Naismith did not like the eventual 5 on 5 format- he felt it was too much sprinting for individuals and worried that the physical strain was more than a player could handle without serious physical repercussions.
Basketball Statistician Sunday's Digest:
NCAA approves 3 rules changes for men’s basketball
An NCAA committee has approved three rules changes intended to clarify block-charge calls, who can shoot free throws after an injury and the expanded use of replay.
The announcement means secondary defenders must establish position outside the area between the backboard and the front of the rim to draw a charge call. The playing rules oversight panel said in a release that the change was based on surveys, rules forums and the coaches’ desire to reduce the amount of contact occurring underneath the basket.
The panel also addressed the perceived advantage teams can get when a fouled player is injured. Previously, the shooting team’s coach could select any player on his roster to take free throws. Now, the opposing coach must select from the four players remaining on the court.
And the committee approved expanding replay to determine flagrant fouls, which would result in ejection. If the foul is not considered flagrant, officials could still call an intentional foul or a technical foul for contact. It is the only rules change that will apply to men’s and women’s basketball from next season.
