The First Review for Dream Team

A STARRED REVIEW FROM BOOKLIST

  • DREAM TEAM: How Michael, Magic, Larry, Charles and the Greatest Team of All-Time Conquered the World and Changed the Game of Basketball Forever

“ … what makes this volume a must-read for nostalgic hoopsters are the robust portraits of the outsized personalities, all of whom were remarkably open with McCallum, both then and now. Remember, these were rock stars 20 years ago, the best players on their respective teams. But for a couple months they put ego aside, didn’t gripe about playing time, and hung out in a Barcelona hotel together, playing cards and talking trash. McCallum was there for much of it and expands his recollections with contemporary interviews with the participants.”
