Very good instructional book about the best all-around player in NBA history

[That'll get some 'haters' attention!] Bird, not 'Be Like Mike Jordan' is the best ever. So he didn't have Jordan's athletism? This book will explain why Bird was 'the man' for 13 years. After which he helped lead his US Olympic team to the Gold on the first (so-called) 'Dream Team.' Without him they wouldn't have won it! This book breaks down every faucet of winning basketball like L.B. and Red's videos do as well. Jordan was about as great but I'll take Birdman by three inches, which is how much taller he was over Jordan. Joradn had the advantage of a better bench and Tex Winter's triangle, which is why he was in six NBA Champiosnhips as compared to Bird's 5. My Alltime NBA Team: Centre - Bill Russell F - Larry Bird F - Julius Erving G - Michael Jordan G - John Stockton 6th - Detlef Schrempf 7th - Kevin McHale 8th - Kevin Willis 9th - Craig Ehlo 10th- Artis Gilmore 11th- Dan Issel 12th- Eric Piatkowski [Hey, you can't PICK ALL Stars. You gotta have quality role players,too!]


A good book for learning basketball basics as well as a few other things useful on and off the court.
