There's not a better writer working today. I always roll me eyes when people talk about savoring a book, about not rushing through it. But that's how I feel about anything Abdurraqib writes.

This book is about basketball, but it's also not. It's vulnerable, cutting, incisive, beautiful. Read it, and then read everything else he's written: Go Ahead in the Rain (a book about Tribe Called Quest), Little Devil in America, They Can't Kill Us 'Till they Kill Us, The Crown Ain't Worth Much. All of it.
