Yaron Weitzman covers the NBA for Bleacher Report and spent the last couple of season working on a book about The Process, a book titled Tanking to the Top. 

Unfortunately, the Sixers have not yet reached the top. They have only successfully tanked their way to a pair of second round playoff exits, but the book is interesting so far. I have an advance copy and got through the first two chapters, which isn’t enough to do a full review, but I promise to do so in a future post.

Meantime, if you’d like to get in on the action, you can preorder a copy at Amazon.

The book will be out in March.

As a teaser, I will give you the titles of the first six chapters:

  1. Purgatory
  2. The Buyout
  3. “He Spoke Stanford”
  4. The Longest Lens
  5. “Who the Hell is Brett Brown?”
  6. “Everyone in the City is Going to Hate Me”

Will finish this book and then report back.
