Author: Tim Donaghy
The media has often speculated and sports fans have debated, but until now no
one has known the real story. Personal Foul takes an in-depth look at former
NBA referee Tim Donaghy and the betting scandal that rocked professional
basketball. This is the decisive book that reveals exactly what was done and
how it all happened. Which games were affected and how? Did referees target
particular players or teams? Just how much did the NBA know and when? How did
the mafia get involved? The book answers all of these questions and more.
Thrilling and poignant, Personal Foul takes readers 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. The book also includes a foreword by Phil Scala, the
FBI Special Agent who worked the Gambino case.
