This is a fun little book that showcases some of the smaller schools hoping to make it to the dance.

I enjoyed this much more than I anticipated. I loved that the various histories of basketball were included and tailored to each player‘s family history.

Thought this looked liked a good read and it is. A young Sudan boy gets chosen to come to America to play basketball. His family is left in a refugee camp in the Sudan. College basketball, March Madness and the rise to fame. A good basketball read. Sooley, Sooley, Sooley!

⭐️⭐️⭐️ A chronicle of Pippen‘s basketball life, but also a rebuttal to “The Last Dance” docuseries. He has some not-so-nice things to say about MJ, and the Bulls organization in particular. It was a bit uncomfortable, but felt honest. His prime was back when I actually watched NBA, so major nostalgia. Lots of game recaps and stats.

Fun fact: My friend Sharla, who is a Nashville makeup artist, did Pippen‘s grooming/makeup for this cover shoot. 🤩

vivastory That is definitely a fun fact 1mo
britt_brooke @vivastory I was definitely starstruck when she told me! She mostly works with country music folks. This was her first time being involved with a book cover. She said he was one of the nicest Celebs she‘s ever worked with. 1mo
marleed I love that fun fact! 1mo

Cinfhen That‘s cool about your friend!! I totally remember Pippen as a player. My gang is still major NBA fans but the 90‘s and late 80‘s were some of the best times… Dr. J, Bird, Barkley, Magic, Ewing, Rodman and yes MJ!! And of course our local hero Kobe 🙌🏻 I think I‘ll pick this up. Thanks for putting it on my #ReadersRadar and I once met Charles Barkley on line at Bed, Bath and Beyond!! He was wearing a full length fur coat & he asked me where 👇🏽 1mo
Cinfhen I bought my handbag 😂😂he wanted to buy one for his lady. He was actually adorable 🥰 1mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen Love your Barkley story! That‘s so cool. Pippen has a little something to say about all the greats of his time. I will say he comes across whiny at times, but I think as an NBA fan, you‘ll appreciate this one. 1mo
britt_brooke @marleed I was very starstruck when she told me! 🌟 1mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Behind the scenes/interpersonal story of the Shaq/Kobe/Phil Jackson Lakers dynasty from 1996-2004. Great book if you‘re interested in sports journalism or basketball generally or this team in particular. Or gossip, for that matter. I lived in LA and started dating a rabid Lakers fan toward the tail end of this period and followed some of it in real time and enjoyed the in-depth look at what the team did and how it came apart.

I'm not a big fan of the NBA but living in Wisconsin it was fun this past year! Bucks in 6! This came out right before he helped win the championship too! #bookspinbingo square @TheAromaofBooks #teamslaughter @Clwojick

It was okay, but it needed more depth. You never really get to know any of the athletes who participated in the 1936 Olympics, and Germany under the Nazi regime is just scratched on the surface. 2 💥💥 1/2

KathyWheeler That‘s a shame because this is a story that should be told and told well. Have you read other books about this that you‘d recommend? 4mo
RamsFan1963 @KathyWheeler Everyone says The Boys In The Boat, about the US Olympic rowing team, is excellent. I've seen one online called Hitler's Olympics that I'm going to try and find at the library. It was written in 2006 4mo
KathyWheeler @RamsFan1963 thanks! I got my daughter-in-law and she liked it. I‘ll check out both books. 4mo
