Extractions: El pequeño Earl aprovecha sin temor las frecuentes discusiones y peleas para entablar contacto con aquellos sufridos balones que a ratos quedaban libres. No tarda por pura necesidad en correr detrás del "puñado de pavos" y pronto pasa a ser él mismo protagonista de la guerra sucia. La fama de Manigault alcanza su máximo esplendor en los últimos sesenta por acciones que jamás se habían visto antes y que nadie hoy día ha podido repetir. La más célebre de todas ellas puede que fuera el "Double Dunk", muy frecuente en sus escapadas a canasta: sin haber alcanzado el apogeo de su salto, machacaba con una mano cuando, sin agarrarse del aro, dejaba caer el balón lo justo para asirlo con la otra y hacer un mate más antes de caer al suelo. Resumiendo, dos mates en uno.

Extractions: Pete Axthelm has a handle on what makes basketball a wonderful sport, and why many of us are in love with it. He doesn't seem to know exactly what he wants to do with this book. Is he reporting on inner-city basketball heroes? On their gravity-defying dunks, or their lightning-quick handles? Or is he reporting on 1970, the year the Knicks won the NBA Championship. The two stories don't intertwin seemlessly as he would have them, and you are left feeling like you haven't been fulfilled on either of the stories in this book. I gave this book 4 stars based more on his obvious joy in writting it (which makes it very fun to read) than his actual skill in writting it. I would have been much happier buying two books as long as this one, one on inner-city basketball in New York City, and one on the Knicks Championship of 1970.

Extractions: Volume 2, Issue 3 Ari Rubin M y name's James Johnson, but everyone calls me "Sweetness." I'm one of the best playground basketball players in New York City. Well... I was, ...once, now I'm just an old man watching from the sidelines. Back in the day son, me an' Slick Jackson could take anyone. You probably never heard o' meno one remembers me these days. "Da Goat," Earl Manigault, used to get all the hype cause he ran with Alcindor, you know, Kareem Abdul Jabbar. But you go to LA, you find Kareem, ask him if the Goat could check Sweetness. He'll tell you. He'll tell you how me and Slick was the best hustlers in New York City. You ain't never seen no one who could dribble like Slick... Shit, that kid had a sick handle. This city's produced many great point guards: Tiny Archibauld, Mark Jackson, Kenny Anderson, Stephon Marbury. Every kid in the city grew up with a ball in his hand, bouncing it up and down, and doin' tricks with it like it were a yo-yo, or somethin', but none of 'em could hold a candle to Slick. He did tricks with the ball that the Harlem Globetrotters could only dream about. Me, I was the shooter. That's how come they called me Sweetnessman, my J was so sweet it could give you cavities. Yeah, I know that line's old today, but they made that shit up about me. Me or Slick could both lock you down on D, and we were both strong on the boards. We were the perfect team and we had the perfect scheme.
