Bread City Basketball


I once sat next to Ackley at this basketball game. We had a terrific guy on the team, Howie Coyle, that could sink them from the middle of the floor, without even touching the backboard or anything. Ackley kept saying, the whole goddam game, that Coyle had a perfect build for basketball. God, how I hate that stuff.

Lebron James is one part Coyle, one part Caulfield. Haters are his phonies.

My man Pat Riley is looking mad grizzled, like he’s about to take on the whole NYPD himself, hip surgery be damned. Who can trust a cop who don’t take money, know what I’m saying? All he needs is that Just For Men, and it’s a lock.
