Inside The Gambling Ring Of NBA Referee Tim Donaghy
VICE “Red Cards” revisits the 2007 NBA betting scandal. We follow the character of Jimmy “the sheep” Battista, the mastermind behind the scandal and the one who sparked NBA referee Tim Donaghy betting on his own games.
For the first time, Battista opens up about his side of the story, letting us in on the seduction of sports gambling and the regrets he now carries with him. Journalists, former NBA All-Star Kenyon Martin, and an ex-FBI detective all weigh in, as we try to unpack just how a scandal of this magnitude could have occurred.
