Money Players Inside the New NBA Reviews
This is a great read. In response to the person from Richmond, Virginia...who wrote and I quote " This book once again speaks to the inherent racism and resentment that is waged against superstar lack athletes by white sportswriters."First of all, it is the sportswriters job to get both the good and bad about athletes. White sportswriters pick on athletes who do stupid things, color has nothing to do with it. Pete Rose got tossed out of baseball for allegedly gambling on baseball, but I recently saw an interview stating he did gamble, but he was tossed out for gambling on the Super Bowl, specifically the Super Bowl XXIII. Hey, I would rather them have them expose the truth than the kiss Michael's ass journalism that most of the media seem to employ. Sportswriters are supposed to report the facts, and that's it. They have no obligation to support or criticize any athlete or team, and if they do state an opinion, it should be for a column or where they are required to do so, anything else would reek of blatant bias. As for the writers without being sins and faults you're probably right, but how many people idolize sportswriters or buy their products? Hell, didn't the press get on the President of the USA, who in my view,has perhaps the most important job in the free world, and I'm not even American. They did their job and exposed him for being an adulterer. If the President of the United States can be held accountable for his actions, why can't sport stars? Just because they're rich and famous, it doesn't mean they shouldn't be held accountable for their actions. If you don't like it, read some shlock book like Return of a Champion by Joe Layden, or Rebound or Hang Time by Bob Greene.
This book once again speaks to the inherent racism and resentment that is waged against superstar black athletes by white sportswriters. The fact that Isiah holds dice games in a house that he owns with money he earned,is nobody's business, the fact that Michael Jordan gambles with shady characters is nobody's business. This book is just another example of how white sportswriters seek to destroy the "famous" image of black professional atheletes for their own gain and benefit. This book proves that these writers have an innate resentment toward these athletes not only because they are black but because they have the athletic prowess and the bragadacio to do what the heck they want to do and they don't care who doesn't like it. Sportswriters seem to only like black athletes what are seldom seen and seldom heard, who act like good little children and stay in their place. Well I say shame on this book and shame on the writers and publishers who would print such a load of bull. Stop trying to make a buck at everyone else's expense. I don't think any of you writers are without sins and faults.
i am a big fan of Armen Keteyian's and i found this book to be among his best! you can always count on the credibility of these writers.there is no hidden agenda, just documented facts. the evolution of sports, along with its history is not forgotten with Mr. Keteyian. today, history is overlooked, for the quick fix. if reality insults you, maybe this book is not for you. but if you enjoy the truth, READ THIS BOOK! when so many sportswriters and broadcasters prefer adulation to pointed questions, this take is refreshing. thank you Mr.Keteyian, and your co-writers, for not being afraid to print your investigation.
Genialer Blick hinter die Kulissen der zum Teil ganz schön zwielichtigen Aktivitäten einiger namhafter NBA-Spieler....z.B. His Royal Airness Himself....absolutes Muss für jeden echten NBA-Fan !
Worth reading at least once, provides a look at the others side of professional sport and those who make their living from it.
I was excited to read the in depth stories to the headlines that the NBA sweeps under the rug. I wasn't able to put it down, read it cover to cover and am saving it to read again soon. Well written and definitely a good subject. Hope there is more soon.
Dieses Buch hat mich als treuen NBA und Basketball Fan doch recht durcheinander gebracht,um nicht zu sagen meine Vorstellung von einer "sauberen" Liga stark beeinträchtigt,meine Einstellung zum Spiel aber nicht zerstört .Deshalb für alle NBA Fans ,die mal hinter die Kulissen des Business Basketball,ob High School,College,oder Profi Level, schauen wollen.Es gibt recht interessante Geschichten über Jordan,den Mord an seinem Vater,über Isiah Thomas,aber auch die Schilderung unter welchen Verhältnissen Kevin Garnett in die Liga gekommen ist.
