Featuring Yaron Weitzman, author of Tanking to the Top: The Philadelphia 76ers and the Most Audacious Process in the History of Professional Sports
Created and hosted by writers Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth, Squawkin’ Sports is a new series featuring book chats with grown-up authors writing about grown-ups playing kiddie games. For the inaugural event in this series, Sauer and Roth chat with award-winning NBA writer Yaron Weitzman on his new book Tanking to the Top: The Philadelphia 76ers and the Most Audacious Process in the History of Professional Sports. Weitzman writes of how the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers trusted The Process—a bold plan to get to first by becoming the worst. Full of uplifting, rags-to-riches stories, backroom dealings, mysterious injuries, and burner Twitter accounts, Tanking to the Top is the definitive, inside story of the Sixers' Process and a fun and lively behind-the-scenes look at one of America's most transgressive teams.
