From Seven Seconds or Less

Jack McCallum’s book about the Suns:

“Amare, you’re starting on [Jason] Collins,” says Iavaroni. “What’s he known for?” Iavaroni likes to use the Socratic Method from time to time. It is not always successful.
“Rebounds. Blocks shots,” says Stoudemire, who plucked a few words from the air. They could’ve just as easily been “eats buffalo wings, drives car.” (190)

It’s a good book. I knew the Suns were going to lose game five, and I had to stop watching it, it was so painful. And I predict, sadly, that they’re going to lose tonight, giving us the pleasure of watching the Spurs bludgeon first Utah then Detroit to death in eleven games.
