Paul Shirley is the closest thing pro basketball's got to Odysseus. He has logged time practically everywhere in the roundball universe, from six NBA cities to pro leagues in Spain and Greece to North America's pro-ball Siberia, the minor leagues. He's even played in the real Siberia. Here, Shirley finally puts down roots long enough to deliver a locker-room chronicle of the modern age, a rollicking, thought-provoking insider's look at a pro baller's life on the fringe.--From publisher description.

An honest, cynical, insiders look at what life as a professional basketball player is like. Paul has a different perspective than you would get from a book written by any other NBA player. A good easy read. If you like his writing, check out his articles at
