really liked it

A great book giving great insight into my favorite team. I wish I could have been alive to witness this team to see them win their two championships. It was fascinating to see how all the different personalities came together to form one unit. I liked all the profiles of the players, coaches, and fans. The way they played is the way basketball is supposed to be played.

The only chapter I didn't like is the one on Earl Monore because it seemed the whole thing was about how much he regretted leaving the Bullets. Although the discussion about how him and Clyde would coexist offered a nice parallel to today's team with Melo and Stat.
