Columnist Lupica's sports novel suffers from predictability: an underdog player overcomes his limitations. Fortunately, Oliver Wyman's excellent reading helps transform the work into one that is probably more entertaining in audio than in print. Listeners who merely want to hear a good basketball story will probably enjoy the story the most and will forgive Lupica for its lack of suspense. They will also enjoy Wyman's performance, especially the game sequences, which prove yet again that a strong reading can often overcome a mundane plot and, in this case, allow the listener to simply enjoy the action.
