Description


USA TODAY said it best: "Talk about a compelling story that is told by the most unique of authors." "Vagrant Kings" is an inside account of NBA Commissioner David Stern's obsession with building a home for the Sacramento Kings, a tragically cursed, road-weary basketball team in Northern California. Unmatched in scope, access and reflections on the emotional, political and financial decisions that swirl around major-league sports in America, "Vagrant Kings" is the first book to provide a deeply personal and detailed look at how David Stern runs the NBA, and how the NBA impacts its host communities. Award-winning journalist R.E. Graswich covered the Kings and NBA during a 35-year career with the Sacramento Bee. He became Special Assistant to Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson and worked on the city's arena project with the NBA.
