Against The World: A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Portland Trail Blazers' Chase For The NBA Championship Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This bold analysis provides an insightful look at the Portland Trail Blazers by the Portland Oregonian reporters who have covered the team for many seasons. For three years, the Trail Blazers came close to the pinnacle of the basketball world, but came away just short of their goal of an NBA championship.

Book News Annotation:

Blazermania. That's what the folks in the Pacific Northwest call Oregon's love affair with its professional basketball team. Eggers and Jaynes (two of Oregon's most experienced sportswriters), provide an insight into what went wrong--and right--during the Blazer's 1991-92 season. This book gives a game-by-game look, from pre-season all the way to a loss in the NBA finals for the second time in three years. There are behind the scenes stories of the team from two reporters who had an inside look at the hearts underneath those t- shirts. Published by Sagamore Publishing Inc., 302 West Hill Street, PO Box 647, Champaign, IL 61824-0647.
