Art can be found in many places. Even on bookcovers.
This is probably the best basketball novel I've ever read. You can tell these guys are really good players. And it's "backboard" magic, not "above the rim" magic, or "nothin' but net" magic. We're talking bank shots off the backboard. Number 8 is missing his left foot. Maybe through the power of magic the other player made his foot disappear. So that he couldn't jump up and block his backboard bank shot. Tracy says he was good at basketball in high school. But I don't think he's remembering correctly. I know I'm better than him.
Gotta pretend to get back to work. I heard Liz yell "Blerg!" from her office. talk next week.
