I've read a couple other sports books with the same general style, "Game 6" about the 1975 World Series and "Three Nights in August" about a regular season series between the Cards and Astros. What those books do that this one doesn't (aside from hold my interest) is tell me something about the GAME. Sure, all of them want to put things in perspective and inform the reader about the world in which they are set. This book just goes from one person to the next, giving us a mini-biography on them. The problem is, they aren't interesting. Maybe it's because the event happened further in the past. Maybe it's because I'm less of an NBA fan than a baseball fan. Either way, I don't know who these people are and I find their stories boring. That bogs this book down and ultimately makes it close to unreadable.
