Don’t mess with the US sport leagues…
Former NBA referee Tim Donaghy’s tell-all book has been canceled by Triumph Books and parent company Random House.
“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 a NBA referee and the events leading up to his conviction on federal wire fraud charges.
Pat Berdan, a consultant at Executive Prison Consultants and Donaghy’s liaison to the publisher, said the decision not to publish the book came two weeks ago. He said it was the result of a threat of legal action by the NBA.
