Synopses & Reviews
Not since The Jordan Rules has a book captured such a poignant inside look at the most intriguing team in pro basketball history. Blood on the Horns by veteran sportswriter Roland Lazenby details the infighting and conflict between Jordan, coach Phil Jackson, teammate Scottie Pippen, general manager Jerry Krause and managing partner Jerry Reinsdorf. Through the use of exclusive on-the-record interviews with a variety of Bulls players and staff members, Lazenby recreates the drama over 1997 and 1998 as the Bulls struggled to remain cohesive. This book captures the harsh, dark side of Jordan's competitive nature.
The book will at last explain to the millions of Bulls fans why the team's management and ownership seemed so eager for Jackson, Jordan and company to move on, despite their overwhelming success.
