Things I wrote while wondering why on Earth I agreed to review a Buzz Bissinger book . . .
And it’s not even really a Bissinger book. It’s a book written by LeBron James with Buzz Bissinger. So far it’s actually pretty interesting (I don’t know much about James, really, so it’s neat to hear about where he came from). Buzz needs to work on his ghost writing skills a bit, though, as there are passages that were very obviously written by a 55 year-old writer as opposed to a 24 year-old basketball god. For example, no matter how well the narrative flows, I can’t really feature James writing the phrase “we lived in a tidy old colonial” on whatever street. Anyone younger than 50 who isn’t in the real estate business says “house,” don’t they? I’m waiting for the references to “davenports” and “ice boxes.”
