Funny story in “Underbelly Hoops”

Reading “Underbelly Hoops,” following a season in the CBA (minor league basketball).  It’s an enjoyable book and a funny story I read in it overnight:  a player has too much to drink and passes out on a night off, and as a prank some of his teammates deposit him under the Christmas tree (like a gift) at the police department.  

The writer of the book played ball at Purdue before playing minor league basketball.  I read that he is now a professor at DePaul (which ironically was my favorite college basketball team in the early 1980s, when I was in junior high school and Ray Meyer was coach), which is impressive.
