9780061231858: Taking Shots: Tall Tales, Bizarre Battles and the Incredible Truth about the NBA

NBA agent Keith Glass shoots and scores in his hilarious look at the NBA behind the scenes, from a guy who has been in the middle of some of the NBA's most controversial stories. The NBA is in trouble. And as NBA agent Keith Glass describes it - he's part of the problem! If team owners are willing to throw millions of dollars his way for marginal players, why should he be the only one with the self-restraint to say "no"? In his insightful, funny, and often mind-numbingly bizarre tales of life in the NBA, Keith Glass lets it fly from half-court. Glass shatters the myth of NBA marketing: that everything about the game is great, that tickets are worth over $100 apiece, and that as long as the fans in the luxury boxes are happy and weighed down with jerseys and merchandise, all is well. But have no fear! Keith Glass will not preach about the evils of highlight film slam-dunks and gang star rap tattoos - he'll just have you falling down laughing as he flagrantly fouls the league that was once the home of Jordan, Magic, and Bird - not to mention Wilt, Russell, Kareem and all the greats in between.
