9780743286503: Foul Lines: A Pro Basketball Novel

"Fun and, at times, hysterically authentic insight into the world of professional basketball by two writers who have been there on the front lines. One would be tempted to call it a satire if it didn't ring so true." -- Angelo Pizzo, scriptwriter, "Hoosiers"

Vom Verlag:

From two senior "Sports Illustrated" writers comes an explosive, fast-paced satire that will do for today's NBA what "North Dallas Forty" did for the NFL a generation ago. Just months from his Yale graduation, street-smart whiz kid Jamal Kelly leaves school to take a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join the front office of the Los Angeles Lasers. Once on the West Coast, Jamal gets a quick introduction to a subculture awash in big egos and fast cars, as well as an introduction to the charms of the team's new hard-charging beat writer, Jilly Forrester. In the spirit of "Primary Colors" and "The Devil Wears Prada, Foul Lines" peels back the curtain on the trappings of big-time professional basketball. No other sport encapsulates so many cultural hot-button topics, and "Foul Lines" at once exposes and lampoons this parallel universe.
