The NBA's Donnie Brasco: Great piece from the Boston Globe detailing the incredible story of NBA ref Bob Delaney, who spent two and a half years undercover in the mob.
Ha! I always knew the NBA was fixed. ;)

Brilliant, thanks for that. Covert though? Chuffin Covert? that's gotta be taking the piss, isn't it?

Probably not the name he really used. "Johnny Covert" is the slang term used in the FBI for undercover agents. Or so I've heard; it could be a total rumor.

This is a perfect example of why the Boston Herald's sports section will never be as good as the Globe's. About twice a year they break out pieces like this: well-written, researched, deep and interesting. Twice a year the Herald prints a readable game story.
