Book Report :) The Jump

The Jump: Sebastian Telfair and the High-Stakes Business of High School Ball

A somewhat scary look into what a premier high school hoops player goes through in deciding between pros and college. The Jump follows Sebastian Telfair, the Coney Island King, through his senior season at Lincoln High School. A season in which the Rail-Splitters go for a third consecutive title, travel cross country with the “next LeBron,” play in front of scouts NCAA and NBA, but most importantly SNEAKER COMPANIES. Intriguing look at the Stephon Marbury/Sebastian Telfair relationship as well as looks at other prep to pro wannabees. Enjoyed it so much, I signed Telfair on my fantasy hoops team.
