Dick Bavetta insists that briefcase of cash is from his Secret Santa

NBA referee Dick Bavetta is adamant that the briefcase of cash just dropped off to his locker is from his Secret Santa, and has absolutely nothing to do with any sort of promise he has made to make sure tonight's game reaches the over. "I am lucky to have a very generous Secret Santa this year. And every year," said Bavetta. "He is so generous he gives me gifts all season long, even into the playoffs. Let's see what the card says: 'Dear Dick – Have a Merry Christmas. Be nice and get it to 200 points or I'll have to be naughty, if you catch my drift. Your Secret Santa (Vinny The Knuckles).' See? Completely innocent. It's normal for a Secret Santa to write in blood. Red is festive."
