Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than a Game is the odyssey of Jackson's journey—from New York Knick and world champion, to CBA coach, to six-time Chicago Bulls world champion, to this year's L.A. Lakers world champion—and the lessons in leadership he learned each step of the way. It is the tale of Rosen's journey as well, carrying the torch for the game of basketball through careers as star college player, CBA coach, and preeminent novelist of the game. It is also the story of the system jackson coaches, the powertriangle, as put forth by Lakers assistant coach Tex Winter. The triangle can be understood as a philosophy of basketball and life—one that values role players almost as much as star players, and where fundamentals rule. More Than a Game is also a story of the friendship between Jackson and Rosen, forged in the sacred brotherhood of the hoop.

Synopsis:

One of the great coaches of the NBA reveals how he turned the Lakers around, teaching discipline to a semmingly undisciplined team.

Synopsis:

Basketball's most successful coach and its foremost chronicler chart their common pursuit of the purity at the heart of the game. Illustrations.

About the Author

PHIL JACKSON is a seven-time world champion NBA coach (six times with Chicago, once with Los Angeles). Basketball player, coach, and critically acclaimed novelist CHARLEY ROSEN played for Hunter College from 1959-62, where he set school records for scoring and rebounding, and was voted team MVP all three years. He went on to play for the US Maccabiah team in 1961, for Camden and Scranton in the Eastern League (a forerunner of the Continental Basketball Association) in 1962, and was a member of the bronze-medal-winning team in the World Senior Games in 1994. Rosen coached in the minor-league Continental Basketball Association for nine years and was the head coach of the women's team at the State University of New York at New Paltz. He lives in Woodstock, NY.
