    Excellent

    I purchased this book after reading Halberstam's "Education of a Coach," which I found entertaining and informative, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I think I liked this book as much as I did because Halberstam was embedded with the team and was able to give an honest account of what he saw without bias. Essentially, Halberstam tells the Portland Trailblazers story, during the course of a year, from the perspective of the players, coaches, and owners. Though I was not familiar with many of the players as I would be today, Halberstam was able to introduce the reader to the characters well. The book spends substantial portions on Bill Walton's story as well as Jack Ramsay's, both of which were fascinating. In addition, I liked the shorter stories Halberstam writes about some of the other players such as Kermit Washington and Maurice Lucas.

    Though I have not read an extensive amount of sports books, I would place this book alongside "Friday Night Lights" by H.G. Bissinger as my favorites due to the fact both writers were with the teams and told the story as they saw it. Today, with reporters unable to gain the access these two writers had, I find these two books to be refreshing.
