When Tim Donaghy pleaded guilty to gambling charges Wednesday in federal court, the plea was accompanied by an FBI affadavit detailing a series of meetings--and payoffs--between the former NBA ref and gamblers. One meeting came before the Nets-Wizards game April 10, which the Nets won after DeShawn Stevenson twice drove the lane in the last seconds without a field goal or foul shots. The Wizards felt then they didn't get a fair shake. Jason Kidd called the scandal a "lesson learned".
