      Anybody that knows Tim Doneghys story been reading his breakdown of the Finals on Deadspin.com? They are good, from an outside perspective who has no care what really happens and just tells it like it is. If you haven't read them or this is the first time you have heard about it, I recommend that any fan of basketball should check them out. For all of us that have played hoops at a high level, the make up calls and such are very evident in the game...and Tim points them out to a "T".

     I am not a Kool-Aid drinking Tim Doneghy blind follower, I just find what he has to say insightful and enjoy an outside perspective. I find it interesting how he calls out the ABC broadcastors for being victims of Sterns constant puppet - master type antics. Anyone have any informed thoughts or comments on the Deadspin breakdowns?

Breakdown after games.  I don't think Tim is making picks anymore but I remember him saying that the series will go "at least 6 games" and the "Kobe will never get in foul trouble again"...

All true statements DwntownChinaTown. His post game analysis is just something that hasn't really been done before by a person in his shoes. Each breakdown has been a good read.

He's not there to give picks but trying to convince people that the sport is fcontrolled from the top down.  I've spoken to him once over the phone just about a month ago as he offered to "straightened out" one of my friends who keeps betting on sports thinking it's all legit and won't listen to a word I tell him.  Very nice guy who is willing to help you if you have a gambling addiction.  He tells me he doesn't like people talking about picks.

Read the book, it serves as a "blue print" to the way the game is mapped out.

i haven't listened to any of this, or heard any of his analysis since the finals started...

however, i know what he's talking about here... did you see the 2nd foul by Rondo in game 3?  he swiped at air, and was called for a foul against Kobe... was a total phantom foul, and Mark Jackson said it was a bad call... but then Van Gundy said "I like that call!"... but it was total bullshit and it was obvious... VG never misses bad calls, and that was as bad as it gets...

they are towing the company line for Stern, and it's pretty weak...

When the new season starts, make sure you read his book.  Very few North American sporting contests are left to athletic competition.  Most are controlled.

You never heard him say this, because HE NEVER SAID THAT. Tim does not make outright straight predictions anymore because he is tired of his fans trying to make money off of him with his insider information. On the other hand, Tim has hinted at a POSSIBLE Lakers victory, but he said it could be 6 or 7 games. He NEVER gave a definitive nod to the Lakers.

Please stop posting false information.

That is the only reason this fuckwad cheater ever had any "fans" to begin with. So if he wants to keep him he needs to ante up. Site sounds like a nice read though.

for the last time MORON, he is tired of people making money off of his picks. He does not gamble anymore and is part of a gambling treatment facility in New Jersey. He is just trying to prove how Stern is using the referees to fit his agenda. and if you can't see that, well then your just a DONKEY boy then eh?

You take the garbage so personally. He is just someone who was picking hot. Not some untouchable demigod like you treat him, and definitely not someone who is a good person. He is basically a glorified rat if you think about it. He wasn't coming clean on the league until he got busted with his hands in the cookie jar. Now he uses his knowledge to sell books and make a name for himself. It is all selfish with him, yet you act like he is this great guy who no one should bother. lmao.

If we ask for the picks of a hot capper on the board that is cool, but asking about the picks from Donaghy--who bt friggin way was offering out tons of picks up until this series--is some sort of crime?

Yeah, I am the moron, sure thing pal. Pull that stick out of your behind and drink a tall glass of Calm The darn Down. You have been watching too many Joe Pesci movies.

Honestly you are acting like you are happy for Donaghy.

I'm not defending him, rather trying to let everyone know he does not make his picks known. whether or not you like him or not, that's up to you.
