The NBA Is Rigged, Part 2

According to phone records, disgraced former NBA official Tim Donaghy made 134 calls to fellow NBA official Scott Foster. He called Foster far more frequently than anyone else. Guess what happened when he made those calls?

"During the 2006-07 period under investigation, seven games refereed by Scott Foster had lopsided enough betting on one team to move the point spread by at least 2 points; those seven teams were undefeated against Vegas meaning that the big-money gamblers won a 7 of 7 times on Fosters games; the odds of that happening randomly are less than 1%.Statistics alone cannot convict, but its certainly noteworthy that seven times in Fosters games one team was bet extremely heavily, and all seven times that team won."


Were there any non-rigged games in the NBA over the past several years?
