"In their hilarious novel on pro hoops, Jack and Jon have really thrown it down! Foul Lines is a funny and dead-on accurate take on the game I love. My only question: When's the Foul Lines movie coming out?" -- Bill Walton, Hall of Fame center and NBA commentator
"In my twenty-seven years writing sports, how many times have I said, 'You can't make this stuff up?' Well, whatever my Sports Illustrated colleagues Jack and Jon made up in Foul Lines, and whatever they got from real life, it comes out fast-paced, funny, and fodder for a film. Even David Stern will have to laugh, I think." -- Rick Reilly, ten-time National Sportswriter of the Year and author of Who's Your Caddy?, Missing Links, and Slo Mo!
"Fun and, at times, hysterically authentic insight into the world of professional basketball by two writers who have been there on the front lines. One would be tempted to call it a satire if it didn't ring so true." -- Angelo Pizzo, scriptwriter, Hoosiers
