The definitive biography of the most legendary basketball player of all time

When most people think of Michael Jordan, they think of the beautiful shots, his body totally in sync with the ball, hitting nothing but net. He is responsible for incredible moments so ingrained in basketball history that they have their own names: the Shrug, the Shot, the Flu Game. But for all his greatness, there s also a dark side to Jordan: a ruthless competitor, a gambler. There has never been a biography that balanced these personas until now.

Drawing on personal relationships with Jordan s coaches; countless interviews with friends, teammates, family members, and Jordan himself; and a career in the trenches covering Jordan in college and the pros, Roland Lazenby provides the first truly definitive study of Jordan: the player, the icon, and the man."
