Abstract:

For years, NBA basketball was marked by a plodding, dull style of play-- until the high-flying Phoenix Suns set the league on fire with their old-school, run-and-gun approach to offense. Along the way they won back legions of disillusioned fans and demonstrated the virtues of team play to a league preoccupied with one-on-one theatrics. This book began as a Sports Illustrated story idea, when writer McCallum proposed to spend the preseason with the team--but he stayed on through their 2005-2006 season. McCallum was looking for real inside access and he got it. He spent the season in the locker room and in the coaches' meetings, learning what makes this wildly popular, innovative, and international assemblage of talented players and brilliant coaches tick. He takes readers inside the heads of Nash, the team's mercurial floor general; the maverick coach D'Antoni; and dozens of others who make up the close-knit Suns family.--From publisher description.
