Abstract:

The first candid report from a land of fragile egos, available women, unexpected tenderness, intramural fistfights, colossal partying, bizarre humor, inconceivable riches, and desperate competition, Loose Balls does for roundball what Ball Four did for hardball. From revelations about the meanest, softest, and smelliest players in the league, to Williams's early days as a "young man with a lot of money and not a lot of sense," to his strong and powerful views on race, privilege, and giving back, Loose Balls is a basketball book unlike any other. No inspirational pieties or chest-thumping boasting here'instead, Jayson Williams gives us the real insider tales of refs, groupies, coaches, entourages, and all the superstars, bench warmers, journeymen, clowns, and other performers in the rarefied circus that is professional basketball. From the Trade Paperback edition.
