Read from January 24 to February 05, 2011

I was fortunate enough to catch the tail end of the Celtics/Lakers rivalry growing up. Irony at its finest, my two favorite players, Larry Bird & Magic Johnson. I liked Bird because my dad & Papaw constantly talked about how he "Played the game, the right way" and was a "model team mate". Being young and impressionable, Magic was Hollywood and what kid didnt like him. From the personality to the smile, to the no look passes and baby hook shot. Finally, this book puts together what each player was thinking/feeling during their playing careers. I highly recommend for any avid basketball fans, especially those fond of the Celtic/Lakers series from the 80's.
