I just read a really funny book called Foul Lines, by SI hoops writers Jack McCallum and Jon Wertheimer, and I thought y\'all would enjoy it. Its a great satire of the NBA today, with the names changed to protect identities (but its very easy to figure out who is who). Everyone gets mocked, from rich owners in the mold of Mark Cuban and the Maloofs to the flamboyant GMs to players like Jason Williams, LeBron, A.C. Green, Doug Christie and others. Wertheim and McCallum also have some funny scenes spoofing David Sterns obsession with globalization, Stuart Scotts fake-gangsta persona, and Master Ps attempts to cut it in the NBA. Its a quick read with an enjoyable plot and solid characters. Heres the amazon link with some reviews if you want to check it out: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/074...Fencoding=UTF8
