Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With unerring insight into the deeper truths of professional sports, John Feinstein explores in riveting detail what happened one night in December 1977 when, as a fistfight broke out on the court between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers, Kermit Washington delivered a punch that nearly killed All-Star Rudy Tomjanovich. The punch-now legendary in the annals of American sports-radically changed the trajectory of both men's lives and reverberates throughout the National Basketball Association to this day. Feinstein's compelling investigation of this single cataclysmic incident and its after-math casts a light on the NBA's darkest secrets, revealing the true price men pay when they choose a career in sports.

Synopsis:

John Feinstein tells the story of the 1977 fight which changed the lives of basketball players Rudy Tomjanovitch and Kermit Washington forever. Feinstein chronicles the "untold story", the drastic response of the NBA, the conspiracy theories about the fight's origins, and its long-term effects.
