"The NBA champion Golden State Warriors are considered a budding dynasty as well as a well-run business, and here journalist Malinowski, who covers the team for Bleacher Report, adroitly details the franchise's long and bumpy road to success. ... Malinowski describes the on-court action with humorous flair while also capturing the sophistication required to properly run a professional sports team." -- Publishers Weekly
"Combining an insider's reporting, intelligent analysis, and rip-roaring prose, Erik Malinowski masterfully reveals how a pair of savvy owners transformed the moribund Warriors into American sports' model franchise. Betaball's fascinating rags-to-rings tale won't just appeal to NBA obsessives; it's a book for fans of all sports and science, business and analytics, Silicon Valley and Wall Street, front offices and locker rooms, money and winning. And it's a helluva lot of fun. Buckle up for the sports book of the year." -- Don Van Natta Jr., ESPN investigative reporter, New York Times bestselling author, and Pulitzer Prize winner
