Drawing on numerous, previously unavailable first-person accounts, including Jack Molinasa€™s own journal and trial transcripts, Rosen presents the true saga of a man who perhaps better than anyone around him understood the weaknesses of the system in which he liveda€”so much so that he convinced himself that he could manipulate that system to his advantage with total impunity, in a lifea€™s journey that took him from NBA play to the Mafia and the pornographic film industry, and to an ultimate tragic destiny.How Jack Molinas Almost Destroyed the Game of Basketball Charley Rosen ... that the only future exciting enough, indeed the only one available to him, was studying the college games like a broker studied the stock market. ... He would also pay a legitimate Associated Press reporter for the use of his name and call the public relations guys at the colleges. ... Was there any dissension on the team ?
