“You look like AC Green, bitch don’t call here anymore…”
by Ryan Meehan
Before I get started, I just want to mention that I realize this book was published well over two years ago. Since then the NBA has seen its share of good and bad times, many similar to those mentioned within these pages. So all apologies to everyone for not getting to this review sooner, but we’ve been a little busy here and to say that the NBA isn’t exactly our top priority is a bit of an understatement.
However, I did want to read this because I grew up playing basketball and watching Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, as well as Michael Jordan and the other NBA superstars from that era. My next door neighbor Jeremy used to have a basketball hoop in his driveway and we were always trying to emulate those players. His favorite was Larry Bird, a hard-working white bread forward who played for the Boston Celtics, which was also his favorite team. But the legend of Bird broke through the public glass ceiling in 1979 when he took Indiana State all the way to the NCAA championship game that year.
