In the new millennium, Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo have defined walking the dog in the minds of many fans. Paul is among the league leaders in total dog walks for every season in which tracking data is available (the 2016-17 season to present). Paul says he never used the move in high school or college, but in the NBA, he’s adopted it to secure 2-for-1 opportunities. “It’s a game that we play, right?” he says. “A game, like any card game you would play, or checkers.”
When Perkins and the Celtics beat Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers in 2008 to take their first NBA title in 22 years, he headed straight to the car showroom with teammate Rajon Rondo. “When our championship bonuses came in, I decided it was time to blow some cash,” he says. “Rondo and I went to a Boston area car dealership and spent our entire bonuses on new Bentleys. I got myself a blue four-door and Rondo pulled off the lot behind me in a sleek two-door black model.” But it’s not just a story about sporting stardom. Throughout the book, the ESPN analyst charts his life and career against a backdrop of poverty and inequality, of discrimination and blatant racism. From the Jim Crow laws through to the Great Migration and the civil rights movement that shaped his upbringing, he highlights the perpetual struggle of black men in America, from slavery right through to the present day. “For many readers, Beaumont, Texas, of the 1930s and 1940s might seem like ancient history, but to me it might as well be yesterday,” he writes. “For eighteen years, I saw this history etched into my grandparents’ faces. I saw the effects of it around me. I still do.”
Caruso is averaging 2.3 points, 2.3 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 2.7 steals and just one turnover over 30 minutes in the three games since he replaced Ayo Dosunmu as the Chicago Bulls’ starting point guard. But those numbers fail to fully capture Caruso’s full impact. Whether it’s playing tenacious defense on a wide variety of positions or — like one of his mentors in Rajon Rondo — calling out opposing plays and delegating defensive duties on the fly, Caruso is about winning.
