Latest revelations in the news re: the NBA scandal

Some media coverage of HBO's "Real Sports" segment of the NBA betting scandal, featuring Bryant Gumbel's interview with Jimmy Battista, follows below.  I have only linked to what I considered the three most comprehensive pieces, though dozens of sites offered their own takes on the revelations.  Obviously, as a result of this past year's research, I am in a position to knock down or confirm many of the (often ridiculous and irresponsible) rumors surrounding the scandal that appear in the the current news cycle.  Whatever speculation remains following the publication of Gaming the Game: The Inside Story of the NBA Betting Scandal and the Gambler Who Made It All Happen will be addressed at that time.
