Slam By Walter D Myers
Greg "Slam" Harris is a seventeen-year-old who thinks he is all that on the court -- and he's not that far off. He can play point guard and slam dunk the ball , making him a tough combination for a defender to handle. The problem is that this year Slam is at a new school, and here his new coach and teammates don't give him the respect he thinks he deserves, and his teachers just won't get off his back about his grades.

Slam, p. Few writers can match Myers for taut, savvy basketball action. The conclusion is hopeful, and the basketball scenes are tough. I can hoop. Case closed. You can take my game to the bank and wait around for the interest. Bringing the ball down the court makes me feel like a bird that just learned to fly.
