Book Review: Can I Keep My Jersey?
This is a review from my Favorite Books list; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.
“The sentence(s) he used included the following words: bitch, ever, don’t, weak, shit, bring, and in here. The order in which he used them remains unclear.”
A 300-page book I flipped through in two weeks, and could’ve read another 300 pages of in a week. Paul Shirley details 4 years f basketball travel that goes everywhere from the farms of Kansas to the steel cold and darkness — literally and figuratively — of Russia in winter. Shirley even spent a few weeks with the LA Lakers back in the Kobe & Shaq days; the above quote is from that laugh-out-loud experience. Looks like Paul may have stepped away fro the pro game; damn shame too- cuz that means he won’t pen another one of these.
