Tim Donaghy Details How NBA Officials, League Allegedly Fix Games (Exclusive Interview Part 3)--
PMB: I've seen Phoenix Suns fans blame you for "stealing away" their 2007 title and giving it to the San Antonio Spurs.
TD: I write in the book that there's no doubt I feel the
Phoenix Suns were the best team in in the league in 2007. And that
whole series was officiated poorly, and I give the reasons in the book
as to why I feel it was officiated poorly. And one of the reasons is
that Tommy Nunez was the supervisor of officials in that series. And he
had a dislike for the (Suns) owner Robert Sarver, and he enjoyed the
lifestyle in San Antonio, and liked to get back in the next round of
the playoffs and continue to go to San Antonio. So it was a situation
that he was steering the series to San Antonio in tape sessions.
