CNN Digital writer publishes book about former NBA all-star

CNN Digital senior producer Wayne Drash writes an uplifting book called "On These Courts," about former NBA all-star player Penny Hardaway. The story captures Hardaway’s experience when he returns to his Memphis roots after retirement to help a friend with cancer coach disadvantaged youth. With the help of Hardaway’s teachings, the team of at-risk teens goes on to become State Champions in Tennessee.  Drash originally reported on this story for CNN.com last year, and the tale has since evolved into a published work.

The book hits shelves today, with an excerpt on CNN.com. A portion of the book’s proceeds will go to Penny Hardaway's FastBreak Courts, part of Hardaway’s ongoing efforts to help youth in the Memphis community.

CNN’s video team put a unique touch on campaign-related videos. Take a walk down memory lane with this video gem, which chronicles the results of every CNN election night since 1980. It shows how the look and feel of the CNN studios has changed over the years. Another popular video is the 2-minute recap of the 2012 campaign, which shows the highs and lows of this year’s horserace… from Obama’s “You didn’t build that” to Clint Eastwood talking to a chair.
