This book exposes the "culture of lawlessness" sweeping through the ranks of the NBA, particularly with respect to crimes against women. The investigation found that 40 percent of NBA players have a police record involving a serious crime. The author had to overcome two chilling effects upon his reporting: law enforcement and court officials who were reluctant to release public records on account of fear of litigation or other repercussions from the players and their attorneys, and witnesses and individuals familiar with the players and their crimes who were afraid to sit through interviews.
