Making the right call

July 24, 2007 @ 3:09pm

After reading about the NBA referee scandal in the Post and online for a couple of days, I was hoping I could pop over to Mark Cuban's blog to read his reaction. Of course, he had something wise to say about the situation. He talked about the issue as it would relate to any large corporation and believes that "calamity can be a catalyst for significant change."

In his comments, readers give him credit for resisting the urge to bash the officials and say "I told you so." Very nice, but a cynic would speculate that he is only taking the high road to show Major League Baseball that he's not the crazy paint-eating owner that they all fear. (Wasn't there an ESPN commercial where they found Cuban eating paint in a garage?) Of course, his positive take is one that's for the good of the NBA, so stop being such a cynic.

Anyway, the latest I've read on the scandal is that this official was working during the Spurs/Suns playoff series and maybe there was at least one late phantom call and some suspicion about how Amare got into early foul trouble -- tampering which might have been game-altering and season-altering, leading to the Spurs' advance into the Finals. Yikes.

Clicking around some more, I just saw that an ESPN TrueHoop blog post debunks that angle.

Over on ESPN's Insider blog, an anonymous player commented on Donaghy's situation, saying that "It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy."

What a mess.
