Sell the Team by Dennis Reed tells the story of the author in his young days, playing basketball in Queens, New York in the 1970s. Experiencing prejudice and abuse, Dennis Reed persevered with his dream of playing basketball. The anecdotal stories of the Knicks and Reed's experience of worshipping his heroes are a great rendition of basketball history.
The story also details the destruction of the team, by the very people who should have wanted it to be successful. The management of the time were most disliked by the players, corporates and fans alike. What would be the final downfall of the most loved team?
An amazing inside story of a once fantastic basketball team, written by someone who was there at the time and throughout. A great read for all, whether the reader has a deep interest in basketball and the intricacies of play, or whether they are interested in the story and politics of basketball in New York since the 1970s.
