I'm pretty sure is has nothing to do with the Wizards, but the news that an unidentified referee has allegedly been gambling on games he's reffed in the past two years is really, really bad for the NBA's image.  Considering the outcry about officiating in the last couple years, this is sure not going to go over well with anyone.  The fact that the mob may be involved certainly doesn't help either.

I'm sure we'll hear more of the silly David Stern conspiracy theories, but it seems like this doesn't go any further than the referee himself.  It doesn't seem like Stern -- or other referees, for that matter -- knew about this.  Obviously, that could change, but let's not scream conspiracy just yet.

Any guesses on which referee go here, as well as any immediate reactions.
