9780553287585: Drive: The Story of My Life

"Of all the people I play against, the only one I truly fear is Larry Bird."--Magic Johnson, from the Foreword.

The heart and soul of a champion: his life, his career, his game. To understand basketball, you have to understand Larry Bird. Arguably the greatest all-around player the game has ever known, he led the Boston Celtics from the basement to three world championships, collecting three NBA Most Valuable Player awards along the way. Yet, despite these massive accomplishments, Bird has rarely talked to the press, and much about the man has remained a mystery. Now in Drive, the long-silent superstar sets the record straight, revealed a side of himself-and of basketball-you've never see before. Inside, you'll learn Bird's most private feelings about: The momentous decision to transfer from Bobby Knight's Indiana University to Indiana State. The heartbreak of his father's suicide and his own failed marriage. The single-minded discipline that tumed a small-town hero into a national superstar. The Boston Garden and the legendary Celtic charm. The Isiah Thomas controversy and the fierce Celtic-Laker rivalry. The great players of the NBA: including Magic Johnson, Dominique Wilkins, and Michael Jordan, and much more. here is the book that puts a basketball legend-and his game-on the line. And scores!

About the Author:

Larry Bird was a professional basketball player, coach, Olympian, and television personality best known for his historic run with the Boston Celtics in the 1980s. Nicknamed “Larry Legend,” Bird led his teammates to multiple divisional titles and NBA Championships. After retiring from the basketball, Bird became the head coach of the Indiana Pacers, where he also experienced great success. Bird is often considered to be one of the greatest basketball players of all-time.

From Publishers Weekly:

The Boston Celtic forward addresses his troubled past, discussing his teammates and telling basketball anecdotes in the process. "Depth and introspection are not among the book's strengths," warned PW . "However, even the brief suggestions of the inner Bird make the book worth reading." Photos.
