About this title

Synopsis:

Explores the world of professional basketball and one season with the Portland Trail Blazers, discussing the players, coaches, owners, competition, money, trades, drafts, media, audiences, joys, and sorrows of the sport

Review:

The Breaks of the Game is sports reporting at its finest--basketball's equivalent to Roger Kahn's The Boys of Summer. Join David Halberstam on his yearlong journey with the 1979 Portland Trail Blazers and witness professional basketball from the inside, where front-office egos, big-money contracts, and the colorful personalities of coaches and players collide, and winners and losers emerge. This insightful account is evidence of how much basketball has--and hasn't--changed since 1979, before the money really started rolling in.
