Description

Hoops is not a book about basketball--Hoops is basketball. How it feels to be a part of the motion, and a part of the moment-the longest moment-as the ball hangs in midair poised over the rim of the basket. The drama of the game . . . and of victory. A book about sport, poetry, friendship, teamwork. Feel it.
