1937. The gears of world war have begun to grind, but Inky Lautman, star point guard for the South Philadelphia Hebrew Association, America s greatest basketball team, is dealing with his own problems.
His coach has unwittingly incurred a massive gambling debt to the Bund, a group of American Nazis. His main basketball rival is self-righteously leading public protests against homegrown American fascism. It s more than Inky can deliver. He just wants to play ball and occasionally beat people up for money.
When the Bund comes calling for what it s owed, Inky has to make a stand for his ragtag bunch of teammates and the coach that got them into this mess. With the Bund closing in, Inky s game isn t just basketball anymore. It becomes a battle that pits Jewish pride against Nazi fascism.
The tides of history are flowing against a guy like Inky. Can he make his free throws and still make it through the season alive?
Get ready. This is Jewball.
