The beginning of the book introduced too many characters with a lot of useless details. There were too many things going on. The story was not focused enough. The book lacked flavor. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743286502, Paperback)

From two senior Sports Illustrated writers comes an explosive, fast-paced satire that will do for today's NBA what North Dallas Forty did for the NFL a generation ago.

Just months from his Yale graduation, street-smart whiz kid Jamal Kelly leaves school to take a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join the front office of the Los Angeles Lasers. Once on the West Coast, Jamal gets a quick introduction to a subculture awash in big egos and fast cars, as well as an introduction to the charms of the team's new hard-charging beat writer, Jilly Forrester.

In the spirit of Primary Colors and The Devil Wears Prada, Foul Lines peels back the curtain on the trappings of big-time professional basketball. No other sport encapsulates so many cultural hot-button topics, and Foul Lines at once exposes and lampoons this parallel universe.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:20:14 -0400)

Presents an NBA-inspired tale of Yale senior Jamal Kelly, who lands a job with the Los Angeles Lasers and finds his former life of poverty transformed into a maelstrom of charter flights, high living, and attractive women.
