Pub. Date:
The Nat. Basketball Assoc. may have been the runaway success story in sports in the 1980s, but midway through the 1990s the league was more like a runaway train, with superstars who can't make a free throw, all-stars who give their coach a blank check up front to cover their fines for the season, and shoe companies that make commercials with a spokesman who led the league in flagrant fouls, fines, ejections and suspensions. The troubles can be seen in every aspect of the sport. In this book, coaches, owners, refs, players, broadcasters, and general managers discuss, what's going wrong with pro basketball, and whether it can be saved.
