One Last Shot By: Mitchell Krugel The Last Shot is about Michael Jordan. The genre of this book is sports. To most, he is the best player to ever play the game of basketball. Everybody thinks he never struggled in his life. He retired three times in his career. Michael Jordan to me is the greatest athlete to play sports. The main character in The Last Shot is of course Michael Jordan. Other people that Mitchell Krugel involved was James and Delores Jordan. He also says a little about his brother and sister. Of course Michael had a million critics. This mans friends were the worst of them. You might even of heard of his friends Charles Barkley and Larry Bird. This really broke Mr. Jordan¿s heart hearing his friends talking about his game. Michael Jordan was born February 17, 1963. He was born in Brooklyn, New York. His parents are named James and Delores Jordan. He has one brother and one sister. James and Delores worked hard to move their family from the mean streets of Brooklyn to Wilmington, North Carolina. They felt Wilmington would be a better place to raise a family. They thought Brooklyn would do harm to the children. . When Michael was growing up, he loved to play baseball, and basketball. As a kid in baseball, he played pitcher and the outfield. In basketball, he was only able to play guard. At age twelve, he was the top player of his league. As a sophomore, he was only 5¿10. He was the quarterback for the Laney JV team. He also played on the JV basketball team. He was too short to play on the varsity. When a player was injured, Michael always thought he would play. The problem was he gave up six inches. Eventually his junior year he went from 5¿10 to 6¿3. This is what got him to the varsity level. This book was written nice by the author. He never put him down and he just prasd Michael his whole career. The only way this book can be written better is to hear Michael Jordan hitting his last shot. However, he air balled, and he will never be able to play in the MLB or in the NBA. It will never be the same without him.
