Bread City Basketball


BALLER IN THE RYE

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.
– From Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger.

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