Off the top of my head, some good ones not posted yetThe Punch - John Feinstein, suprisingly great book about Kermit Washington and Rudy T.The City Game - Pete AxthelmDouble Dunk - Bruce Beckham (the actual story of Earl The Goat Manigault)and Heaven is a Playground - Rick TelanderAs you can see, Im into the books about the city game, so any recommendations about street ball would be appreciated.
Not to upset the Bassy Haters but the "Through the Fire" book was really good too.
i honestly don't see a reason for reading a basketball book, at least one by an actual player. the whole reason these books were written is because of the money making schemes of big publishers. its the same reason why that gave phelphs such a lofty amount for his book. to start, they don't even write half the stuff that's in the book. next, while i might consider reading a book written by say duncan with his high basketball iq, the reality is that a lot of these sports players are like gerald green when it comes to good witting. that's just my take on it.
