A scouts iconoclastic views of basketball, love, and American culture. Brimming with truth, humor, and humanity, bestselling author Charley Rosen lays bare the trials and tribulations of anyone who loves sports for the game of it, not the business. Naturally sarcastic, a touch disillusioned, but always the idealist, Rob Lassner is an NBA scout who must assess the potential of high school and college players while appeasing a shit-for-brains owner who wouldnt know a crosscourt pass if it knocked the silver spoon out of his blathering mouth. Scouts Honor is the story of one mans attempt to balance his love for the purity of basketball with the below-the-rim bullshit side of the game that pays his bills. With charming irreverence and colorful prose, Rosens novel is steeped in both literary richness and the art of the jump shot.
