Sports Illustrated's chief NBA writer, Jack McCallum, only planned to spend the preseason with the Phoenix Suns as an "assistant coach" -- and then write a story about his experiences. Instead, he stayed on with the Suns throughout their exciting and controversial 2005-2006 season. Gaining access to everything from locker-room chats with superstar point guard Steve Nash, to coaches' meetings with maverick coach Mike D'Antoni, McCallum learned what makes this wildly popular, innovative, and international assemblage of talented players and brilliant coaches tick -- making Seven Seconds or Less an all-access look at one of the greatest shows in sports.

This book follows the Phoenix Suns during the 2005-06 NBA season. It is a real insider's perspective of how an NBA team functions and how the coaching staff needed to gel together this group of athletes from a wide variety of backgrounds. The play-off run was full of controversy, intrigue and plenty of heroics.
