Former NBA referee Tim Donaghy was at the center of a gambling scandal that stunned the league 15 years ago.
Now, Netflix is revisiting the infamous story that rocked the sports world in the late 2000s with an episode for its documentary series Untold.
Donaghy resigned from the NBA in July 2007 amid reports that the FBI was investigating his involvement. He was sentenced the following year to 15 months in federal prison for accepting money from a professional gambler in exchange for inside information on injuries and games.
Donaghy admitted in court to having a gambling addiction, and he publicly stated the NBA encouraged referees to call fouls that manipulated the results of games. His claims and the scandal, in general, harmed the league’s credibility for years.
In 2009, Donaghy released a book about his role in Personal Foul.
You can watch the trailer for the episode in the video below.
