McCallum joined the staff of Sports Illustrated in 1981 and became known for his articles on the NBA. He won the Basketball Hall of Fame’s Curt Gowdy Media Award. During the 2005–06 NBA pre-season, McCallum began working as an unofficial assistant coach with the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team as part of an assignment for Sports Illustrated. The piece soon evolved into a larger project, as the Suns granted McCallum full access to their practices and strategy sessions throughout the entire season. The resulting work was his book :07 Seconds or Less: My Season on the Bench with the Runnin’ and Gunnin’ Phoenix Suns. In 2008, McCallum left Sports Illustrated but has continued to write for the publication as a special contributor.
