In this candid and beautifully written memoir, New Zealand Tall Black John Saker tells of his lifetime love affair with America's game, how it changed his life, and the head-spinning moments when the sport became the talk of the nation. From his early teens, when shooting hoops was a way of dealing with family tragedy, through to his scholarship to a US university, career in France as New Zealand's first professional player, and selection to the New Zealand Tall Blacks, Saker canvasses both highs and lows of a sport where players such as New Zealand's Steven Adams today command multimillion dollar salaries.
