Sunday night during the Dallas game, the San Antonio Spurs came out of a commercial break sharing a video of the players talking about their favorite books growing up. DeMar DeRozan was a fan of the Goosebumps series. Jakob Poeltl’s read every Harry Potter book in the series. Keldon loved Captain Underpants. Derrick White (being Derrick White) claims his favorite childhood read was the dictionary.
One book, in particular, stood out. Rudy Gay’s favorite book growing up was S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. It’s not as common a go-to these days as the era of the book is dated.
