Editorial Reviews

Review

"The basketball brotherhood in Seattle is just different. There's such a deep connection with each other and their city. I really enjoyed that feeling and I was happy to be apart of it. This story of the culture of basketball in Seattle is so pure."   

- Kevin Durant, 10x NBA All-Star, 2x NBA Champion 
 
"The fans are so loyal and so dedicated in Seattle. They give you a feeling of warmth and family. So many guys made it to the NBA from the area because of that feeling of family. 
Hoops Heist is the story of generations of NBA guys lifting each other and their community up".
 
- Gary Payton, Pro Basketball Hall of Famer, NBA Champion
 
"The Sonics have always had a special relationship with their city and fans. The team shaped the community and the community shaped the team. 
Hoops Heist captures both sides to show the incredible influence the franchise had on Seattle and the whole NBA."  

- Jason Terry, NBA Sixth Man of the Year, NBA Champion
"I know for a fact I would not have made it to the NBA without the presence of the Sonics being here in Seattle. The fact that I was able to go to games and get a chance to workout with some of the players - it made my dream of making it to the NBA more believable for me. In turn, with their help, the vibration of what they accomplished is still being felt for generations in our basketball community. I am glad that so many will get a chance to learn more about our community in this book."
 
- Jamal Crawford, 3x NBA Sixth Man of the Year
