Joseph "The Profit" Smith is an engaging, gregarious seven-foot pro basketball All Star. He is also the poster child for the bad athlete, a womanizer, selfish, immature and irresponsible. He has burned through 70 million dollars in nine years. And now, two bad marriages, baby mamas, a series of lousy investments, a bum knee and a potentially life-threatening heart condition have landed him back at his college campus in Iowa to rehab his bad knee for a final season that will earn him much needed full retirement benefits.

When his nefarious agent comes up with a plan that would ensure the retirement money he so desperately needs, plus a nice kickback from the proceeds of Jamal's first multimillion dollar ...
