Good basketball books

Postby dannyolbb » Fri Sep 16, 2005 3:28 pm

I'm part of the big brother/big sister program. I've got a 9th grade student who needs to do a couple of book reports. I know that Bill Simmons did a column on good sports books, but I can't find it. Can anyone give me books on sports - either basketball or football. Early high school level.

No argument from me. Hell, I tried to turn the kid onto baseball but it's not for him. So, in the interest of helping out a poor inner-city kid, does anyone have any real suggestions?

Well for that I commend you!

Baseball is far superior, but what can ya do?

You could have him read that Wilt Chamberlain book where he talks about sleeping with 10,000 women.

Wrong Cafe'.











Actually I heard Pat Riley's Winner Within was pretty good.

No clue if it really is or not though. Good luck. ;-D
