1000 Books In 10 Years; Vol. 102: Shaq Uncut: by Shaq

Shaq is not only the most dominant player of his generation, but he played with nearly all of the greatest players of of the past twenty years; LBJ, DWade, Kobe Bryant, KG, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Steve Nash, Amare, and Grant Hill, while also playing under two of the greatest coaches of all time: Pat Riley and Phil Jackson (and we may throw Doc Rivers in there by the time he retires). Shaq was also involved in some high-drama exits, exits from Orlando, LA and Miami, and was also around for the “Ring-for-the-King” campaign that was LBJ’s final year in Cleveland. The book offers behind-the-scenes looks at what goes on during the building of a championship teams, and also offers insights into players, coaches, relationships, GMs and also offers some juicey gossip and Shaq’s views on the next generation of NBA players. Not exactly well written, and it certainly will not be remembered for its literary merits, but it is certainly worth a read for  any basketball fan who is curious about such things.
