Perfect for the fan of basketball in it's 80s/90s heyday
on 9 October 2012
For those of you of a similar age as myself and a basketball fan, the players in this book are as recognisable as your own limbs. The collection of players bought together for this first professional US Olympic team was not only unprecedented, but in my humble opinion, as of yet unmatched.
The memories of opponents lining up to be photographed with their NBA idols, point guards laughing as Jordan dunked on them and Angola taking the lead by a single point in the opening game, only to be steamrollered for the next half are still as fresh now as they were then. It could be said that this is the defintive book on the '92 team, but I can't help feeling that perhaps essays written by the players and interspersed throughout the book would have made this a slightly easier read.
Just by assembling this team of superstars, many of whom are still heavily involved in the game, is an achievement in and of itself and must be akin to hearding cats, albeit millionaire superstar cats and for that he is to be heavily commended and I would recommend this book to anybody that watched this incredible collection of superstars play in Barcelona.
