Prison Basketball – Autographed Hardback
Seth Ferranti takes readers behind the prison walls to witness a game played like no other. In the yard, young men that could have been NBA stars battle fiercely for respect and a momentary escape from the harsh reality of incarceration. It’s an intense show that packs the whole compound into the gym to talk trash, cheer their favorites, and bet heavily. Under the boards, players like Maine, Purple, Monkee, DJ and the Abuser perfect their game and fiercely compete to be known as top b-baller on the compound. Meanwhile, those coming in off the streets look to snatch the crown and make a name. But there’s no faking it in prison, it’s go hard or get chased back to the cells and disputes on the court can translate to real life violence.
