Strong profile on a professional basketball player by the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ dubs him the “Anti Lebron”
I used to hate reading basketball pieces by non-basketball mags. But now I like reading them, well some. The ones from NY Times and WSJ–legit publications–are a great read. It teaches me how to write about the sport from an angle that can be understood by a complete outsider. And these stories tend to take on a scope wider than just basketball. These pieces are about life.
