    This was one of the greatest books i have ever read. It gives you a good look at the high school sports world as well as well as the business side of things. Sebastian Telfair was one of the best players to ever coem out of New York and while doign that he managed to do everything he needed to do in the business world.

    The Jump

    A good book that shows in sight on a lot of things. First thing is Telfair's life as well as his familly member's life. It talks about his realationship with his cousin, stephon maurbury. iT also shows some insights on how athlete's choose endorsement deals and how high school ballers who are low class choose beetween whats right and a lot of money.

    Outstanding!!!

    For anyone interested in basketball and in discovering how much power shoe companies wield, read this book! This book is not just about Sebastian Telfair, though Telfair fans will love this book about his life. It uses Tefair's life as the backdrop for a story about the High Stakes Business of High School Basketball, shoe companies, AAU teams and the NBA. I'm a big Telfair fan but I enjoyed this book all the more because it discusses the ins and outs of what these kids go through. A terrific book that needed to be written!
