The Whore of Akron: One Man's Search for the Soul of LeBron James

"If there has been a chance for me to come back to Cleveland and people lovers welcomed me again, that'd be an outstanding tale. "—Lebron James

Scott Raab is a final vestige of Gonzo Journalism in an period while sanitary decorum reigns. Crude yet warmhearted, poetic yet raving, Raab has chronicled—at GQ and Esquire—everything from nights out with the likes of Tupac and Mickey Rourke to an ethical research into Holocaust death-camp shield Ivan the bad to the rebuilding of the realm exchange heart web site, however the e-book you carry on your fingers is neither a narrative nor a task: The Whore of Akron is the made of lifelong anguish, and a venture certain with the that means of lifestyles.

Raab sat within the decrease bowl of Cleveland Stadium on December 27, 1964, while the Browns defeated the Colts for the NFL international Championship—the final activities identify the declining urban has received. He nonetheless incorporates his price tag stub anyplace he is going, effectively tucked inside a Ziploc bag. the dignity of that triumph is a straightforward factor to forget—each iteration born in Cleveland is one other iteration faraway from that victory; a whole fan base "whose day-by-day bread has endlessly tasted of ash. "

LeBron James was once presupposed to swap all that. a local son of Akron, he used to be already international recognized through the age of seventeen, had already graced the canopy of activities Illustrated, used to be already worthy $90 million to Nike. He gave the impression of a miracle heaven-sent by means of God to remodel Cleveland's wasting methods. That the Cavaliers drafted him, the place of origin prodigy, with the 1st decide of the 2003 draft, appeared not anything wanting future. yet after seven years—and nonetheless no parade down Euclid Avenue—he left. And he left in a fashion that appeared designed to curve the knife: saying his circulate to South seashore on a nationally televised ESPN creation with a sly identify ("The Decision") that echoed fifty years of Cleveland activities futility.

Out of James's treachery grew a monster. Raab, a fifty-nine-year-old, 350-pound, Jewish Santa Claus with a major Wahoo tattoo, may undergo witness to LeBron's each stream, and in doing so may act because the eyes and ears of Cleveland itself. (He didn't hold this intentions a mystery and used to be swiftly banned via the Miami warmth. )

The Whore of Akron is an indictment of a traitorous athlete and the tale of Raab's hilarious, profane (and profound) quest to bare the "wee jewel-box" of LeBron James's very soul.

Example text

The effort is intense and exhausting but I have to make the words come. I deplete my resources, but can’t stop. The words that I grasp turn brilliant in color and wave and pulsate. They run together and back away from each other as if they have a life of their own. Patterns fill my mind with colors and shapes and feelings and sizes and fonts and—another word. Then another and another. Like a gift, I have an entire sentence. The tiny trickle of tears down my face turns into wracking sobs that burn my cheeks.

Then another and another. Like a gift, I have an entire sentence. The tiny trickle of tears down my face turns into wracking sobs that burn my cheeks. A noise surprises me. I look toward him and see him rise to his knees. The blackness of the room makes him appear ghostly. I can see his face more clearly now but don’t feel anything at all. The absence of emotions for just a moment is strangely calming and I suppose this is how a person feels just before they die—as if they have nothing to lose in sweet surrender.

I turn my face to the left and spit blood onto the mattress, choking on some that has run down my throat. I bring my head back around and his fist slams again into my face, this time into the right side of my jaw. The sound of my bone breaking sickens me. My eyes stop focusing as the pain of his punches reach me. He keeps pounding my body, legs, chest, stomach, face. Breathing is difficult and becoming impossible. Anticipation of where his fist will land next is impossible, and agonizing when it finally makes contact with my body.
