Jason Whitlock nails it

Stern, NBA have big problem on their hands with Donaghy’s allegations

The Lakers’ Kobe Bryant was in full Kobe form on Tuesday night, putting up a shot over the Celtics’ Paul Pierce in the second half. Bryant finished with 36 points. The Celtics lead the series 2-1. LOS ANGELES The system is broken, and David Stern’s belittling of disgraced and criminal former NBA ref Tim Donaghy won’t fix the officiating crisis undermining the credibility of all big-time sports.

The system is broken, and the one “media” organization — ESPN — that could provide significant pressure to enact dramatic change from sports leagues is in partner$hip with the leagues in question
ESPN is obsessed with Roger Clemens' (possible) steroid use. They think that a DUI by an ex-NFL player is news.

Bombshell revelations about the NBA? The professional journalists at the WWL play flack for David Stern and try to change the subject.
