One of the best sports books I've ever read

While this book depicts a time period (the late 1970s) that might not be familiar to most casual basketball fans, its portrayal of the 1979-80 Portland Trail Blazers shows some of the challenges of being a part of the world of professional basketball at that time. It's still a must-read for people who like the NBA.
