Michael Jordan

I chose to read a biography on Michael Jordan, a player who changed the game of basketball during a time of racial tensions still running high. The book follows Michael on his journey through high school, and touches on his childhood and teenage experience. Then follows him to college where he came in as an outspoken freshman and made an unbelievable shot to win a championship title for the team, and begin to make a name for himself in the world of basketball. Then came his journey to the pros. He was drafted into the NBA before he even finished college, despite his mothers wishes, and began playing for the heat. He was a great player from the start but the team he was on was not right for him, and his team mates began getting jealous of the shadow he was casting over the rest of the team. Then the team got a new coach who built the team up around Jordan and chose players based on specific skill sets, making the team a dynasty. Finally Nike gave him offers and he came out with his own shoe line, one of the top shoe lines ever created by an athlete.
Some major messages in the book were related to how basketball changed the racial stereotypes and tensions in early America. Black basketball players were seen as not having intelligence and only relying on natural abilities and instincts. Jordan changed these stereotypes with his game and even white people began to love him for his game.
One of the things I liked about the book was that it was easy to read, and crammed a lot of information about Jordan and the history of the game into a small reading. One thing I disliked was that the author really looked at political issues with a liberal slander and I am personally more conservative. If someone is interested in basketball as a game and how it was developed from a backyard and ghetto playground hobby into a multibillion dollar industry and how Michael Jordan contributed to this expansion then I would recommend this book to that person. I would overall rate this book a 3 out of 5 because it could have been more detailed and there were certain parts of the book that didn't make sense just because of the way the author worded the sections.
I personally liked this book because it was very interesting and I thought the author did a great job of showing how basketball impacted the racial tensions and problems that were going on at the same time the game was evolving. I think these tensions were important to the development of the book because they fueled the controversy of professional basketball in all respects, not just Jordan's play. If the races had been on good terms then the development of controversy would be non-existent and the play of many professionals that that influenced Jordan probably would have changed. If this would have been the case who knows where the world of professional basketball would be today.

Didn't have much about Jordan. Its was basically only about the history of Basketball. Pretty boring. YAWN. Im going to bed.
4 stars and it started off pretty bad then it got really good and I got to learn about my man Larry Bird.
