Court Vision: Unexpected Views on the Lure of Basketball by Ira Berkow

Nobel laureats on the fast break? Symphony orchestra conductors on the alley-oop? Astronauts on the free throw? Bestselling New York Times writer Ira Berkow presents a unique look at Americas premier sport--and its fans--thorugh interviews with a remarkable cross section of widly known and extraordinarily accomplished individuals in a variety of fields, who explain what the lure of basketball is for them. Berkow talked with Chris Rock, Woody Allen, Tom Brokaw, Saul Bellow, Johnnie Cochran Jr., Walter Matthau, Nikki Giovanni, Donald Trump, Julia Child, Frank Stella, Erica Jong, Grover Washington Jr., Seiji Ozawa, and Sharon Stone, among others, to uncover fresh, funny, controversial, and often surprising opinions about the teams and players who make the game intriguing. My height was insufficient for a serious career. But to this day, if I play in a game with kids eight years old and under, Im a tremendously effective shot blocker.--Woody Allen A basketball game is a two-hour version of life, and thats the beauty of it. You have a start, you have a middle, you have a finish. The nice part is that you dont have to go eighty years.--Donald Trump I always say that the most dangerous play in basketball is the open white man. Its because there is nothing more surefire. . . . A white guy open behind the arc is frightening. --Chris Rock The interviews also offer compelling insight not only into what makes basketball transcendent, but these luminaries view the world of basketball how their own particular expertise and learn from it.
