Mainly this book takes you to the behind the sences of a NBA Game Day it like it will make you feel that you were there the whole time just invisible to everybody. Some of you might think that basketball is a easy game to play and the basketball players talent just comes naturally. Well you are wrong because basketball players have to work hard to improve their skills and it takes alot of time to organize the enterainment for the fans because the production crew relly wants everything to go right so fans can be happy and for them to know that their job was done well. The basketball players are pretty well sereved like they have their own airplane for their basketball team and it even customize for them. Even they get to stay at fancy hotels and each player has their own room and they even have their own vans to travel around. But at least they are on their grind. Now the coaches job is to watch the playstyle of the opposing team so they could know what their plans is to win the game. The trainers job is to ease off the basketball players like help thm stretch out and help with preventing  any injuries.  That is how it's all done  I hope you take an adventure  just like this. If you do, just let your eyes sink in the action because it 's  going to be the amazing experiece.
