Through stories, scripture, journaling and NBA and WNBA examples, young men and women will be inspired to take their game to the highest level. Readers of this book will truly understand what it means to play "above the rim" and become a leader. The combination of playing with a clear purpose and passion, discipline and inviting the Holy Spirit into their game will elevate young players to be their best. They will be inspired to love Jesus and recognize that their love puts them on a team that includes some of the best players in the world.
Tannenbaum says, "The book is inspiring selfless leadership in a world of sport that promotes chest-pounding your own accomplishment and trash talking over the power of letting your game speak for itself. This book helps young basketball players identify with professional players who openly profess their faith. This book illustrates with scripture, a savior in Jesus who always plays above the rim and gave His best so that we might become our best in Him. Finally, this books demonstrates that every player has value in the eyes of a loving savior!"
