This is the unvarnished first-person story of the greatest all-around player in basketball history. It’s also one of the most forceful testaments you’ll ever read. The Big O pulls no punches, and has the facts and figures to back him up. The man who changed the game, on the court and in the courts, was also a prime mover in the social changes of the 50s and 60s. Like most trailblazers, he paid a steep price, but society, the game and its players — especially the players — are richer for his contributions. Those who believe that the NBA began with MJ are especially urged to read this book! P.S. It makes a great gift.
