His whip game resembles his floor game to a T: speed, style and superior quality. Devin Harris is New Jerseyís man in the driverís seat
By Seth Berkman #91
Devin Harris lives life in the fast lane. But this isnít one of those cautionary tales of flaming out too soon (truth be told, Devin is as unpretentious as a professional athlete could be). Weíre talking about the All-Starís palate for driving down the block and driving towards the hoop.Speed is his weapon of choice, evident by lightning-quick layups and his custom-designed Maserati and Ferrari. We caught up with the Netsí franchise point guard on an overcast, chilly day last fall on the Weehawken waterfront. With the New York City skyline as a backdrop, Devin showed us his current fleet of choice cars (heís got a few more in Dallas), while also talking about his lifestyle off the court and showing us a behind-the-scenes look at the life of one of the Leagueís most engaging superstars. So hop on in and join us for a ride as we welcome HOOPís newest addition, car editor Devin Harris. Just be sure to buckle up..
