Tim Donaghy tells his story on 60 Minutes

December 7, 2009 | 11:38 am

In case you missed it, disgraced ex-NBA referee Tim Donaghy told his story on 60 Minutes last night and it's definitely worth watching.

Donaghy discusses how he never attempted to fix any of the games he officiated in (a claim supported through investigations by the FBI and the NBA) and that he was successful betting on games simply because he knew which players other referees liked and disliked.

Donaghy also claims the NBA showed preferential treatment to Kobe Bryant after the Lakers complained about missed calls.

Here's the full interview in two parts (unfortunately, it's interrupted by commercials):
