In this episode of “Red Cards,” Vice Sports revisits the 2007 NBA betting scandal.
Vice Sports follows the character of Jimmy “The Sheep” Battista, the mastermind behind the scandal, and the person who sparked NBA referee Tim Donaghy to bet on his own games.
For the first time, Battista opens up about his side of the story, lets us in on the seduction of sports gambling, and the regrets he now carries with him.
Journalists, former NBA All-Star Kenyon Martin, and an ex-FBI detective all weigh in as VICE Sports try to unpack just how a scandal of this magnitude could have occurred.
