really liked it
Read in February, 1995

A disturbing portrait of the basketball dreams of inner city high school students in Coney Island, New York. The coaches come across as particularly sleazy in their recruiting methods, preying on students who are desperate to get out of the drugs and crime of the neighborhood. This book still comes to mind when I hear news of Stephon Marbury, maybe the only one of the players profiled to have any real success in the NBA.
