Runaway's Basketball Buddy Tells All
Bix Rivers has disappeared, and who's going to tell his story? His stepfather? Man, that dude does not know Bix deep. Can Bix's momma tell you? I reckon not -- she is crazy in the hospital. Ain't nobody but me understands worth a penny.
First time I saw Bix was at a baseball game. He was a shortstop, supreme. I didn't want to start liking this flashy cracker with a momma in a high-style black dress. But Bix got me, baby.
And then it was me, Jerome Foxworthy, doing hoops privately in the woods and getting my moves down, when Bix showed up. I taught him all I knew -- even though he wanted to play everything straight, not fake it. Because he had one game coming up where he'd need all the moves to put his life together again. . . .
