After 52 long years, the city of Cleveland finally has a new championship team, thanks to LeBron James and his Cavaliers. Scott Raab—Cleveland super-fan—has suffered for every one of those five decades of drought. In the tradition of Frederick Exley’s cult-classic sports book A Fan’s Notes, The Whore of Akron is Raab’s hilarious and unhinged plea for deliverance from all those years of pain. Traveling from Cleveland to Miami and back again, Raab heads out on an obsessive quest to uncover the soul of one of today’s greatest basketball players: LeBron James, the man who finally brought Cleveland out of sporting exile.

This is not just for the fans from northeast Ohio. Very interesting and Scott Raab is such a fun author to read.
Lebron is awesome!!!. Better than the guy that wrote this book... Loser
I'm from NE Ohio so I am very familiar with Queen James and friends. I share the exact viewpoint as Mr. Raab so there weren't many revelations revealed to me. Very enjoyable book though. This could be the year Scotty. Every year.
