64

A city in drought of a championship. A franchise that loses its biggest superstar. An NBA legend's tarnished legacy. A shunned NBA veteran. A kid who is deemed unfit to play due to his height. A spoiled brat who must grow into a man. A child who has his entire family murdered. An NBA team in dire need of a face.

One man must deal with it all.
