The book John Lucas: Winning A Day At A Time by Joseph Moriarity is like a roller coaster ride though the ups and downs of the life of John Lucas. He takes you though each stage of John¿s life; from his early years before high school and how he won the Junior World Cup and his basketball experiences. Then he went to high school in N.C. and his first experiences with drugs. He set many college records at the University of Maryland and was the star of the team and NCAA. When he made it to the NBA people thought he could have been as good as Michael Jordan, but he got addicted to hard drugs like cocaine. The author skips through how John got kicked from team to team and went from rehab to rehab. His drug addiction tore apart his family and almost ruined his career before he finally got on track with his life. This book is a very slow read and it trudges from chapter to chapter. It has some good times where it¿s an enjoyable spot; but I would not recommend buying or reading this book unless you feel interested in his life experiences and drug problems. It¿s not worth the time to stumble though the pages. I skipped pages at a time and still found myself in the same place. The novel is just a slow timeline of the life of John Lucas.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
