The Vulture Reading Room Takes on the Sports Guy


In October, ESPN’s Bill “the Sports Guy” Simmons released The Book of Basketball, a 700-page, extremely biased history of the modern NBA. Our latest Vulture Reading Room panel has finally made its way through the behemoth and will be breaking it down all week. Joining our moderator, New York book critic and basketball artist Sam Anderson, will be Jonathan Lethem and Sherman Alexie, New York associate editor Ben Mathis-Lilley, and some very good sports writers whose names you pop-culture nerds probably wouldn't recognize.
