Jay Brenner (@_bballjones) is a Memphis, TN based attorney and writer. At the age of 7 he genuinely believed the Mid-South Coliseum was the largest, most renowned building in the world. He attended the 1985 Midwest Regional Final in Dallas, TX and had something approaching a spiritual experience. Between the 7th and 12th grades, he read A Season on The Brink half a dozen times.
In 1995, Jay graduated from Memphis’ White Station High School without distinction. In class, he could often be found reading (and re-reading) Tiger box scores. His basketball playing career peaked as a role player in an adult men’s league.
