Publisher Comments:

Former NBA star Luther Wright shares his harrowing and uplifting journey of finding Godand#8212;and himselfand#8212;when he had nothing else to lose.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Luther Wright had the life hoop dreams are made of. A first-round NBA draft pick for the Utah Jazz, he was a rookie on a team with basketball legends Karl Malone and John Stockton. He had money, women, cars, and a luxurious bachelor pad overlooking Salt Lake City. But within a year, ravaged by drugs and unable to cope with life as an NBA star, he was homeless, broke and addicted to crack cocaine.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Wright never wanted to play basketball, yet standing more than seven feet tall even as a boy, he thought he had no choice. In this heartrending memoir, he writes candidly about the self-destructive spiral he found himself on after neglecting his passions to pursue the dreams of others. After years of living on the streets, he finally found a gift greater than anything his millions could have bought himand#8212;God. Today, Wright offers a simple message: believe in yourself, follow your dreams, and only then will you find your andlt;iandgt;Perfect Fit.andlt;/iandgt;
