Ineffective Scholastic Books of My Youth

Lay-up, foul-shot, block that ball!
Read this book and learn it all.
Page by page and you’ll go far
Be a star like Kareen Abdul Jabbar!
Alas, it never did come true
Perhaps Scholastic I should sue.


  1. Jozet — I wish! (except for the hair)

  2. Yikes, that is a terrifying illustration! And I can’t believe the title–“How to STAR in Basketball?” Is that really the goal–do they even talk about teamwork?

  3. Bringing back memories of watching the Harlem Globetrotters cartoon on TV as a child.

    Do you ever shoot hoops now?

  4. B team, baby! Or worse….Newcomb!
