Review quote

Advance praise for "Dream Team" "The Dream Team was one of a kind, and so is this fascinating account of the best basketball team of all time. Jack McCallum, the consummate basketball insider, lures you into the back rooms, living rooms, and locker rooms of this volatile group of superstars with revealing, colorful anecdotes that will make you laugh, cheer, and gasp. This is a terrific read by an all-star journalist."--Jackie MacMullan, "New York Times" bestselling co-author of "When the Game Was Ours" "Perfect book, perfect subject, perfect writer. "Dream Team" is one of the best sports books I have ever read--a riveting inside look at a once-in-a-lifetime squad at a once-in-a-lifetime moment in time. Jack McCallum has pieced together a masterpiece."--Jeff Pearlman, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Sweetness" and "Boys Will Be Boys" "Jack McCallum is one of my favorite writers on the NBA. If Jack writes it, even if I know the story, I want to read it. He reflects the best of his longtime residence in the glory days of "Sports Illustrated" You can see the event, but you still want to know what the reporter has to say about it. "Dream Team" is a wonderful look back at what will live on not only as one of the NBA's great times but as a summary of its golden era. Jack beautifully blends what happened then with where-are-they-now? anecdotes, taking you behind the locker-room door with the greatest names of their era. This is such a wonderful read, you can't help but smiling."--Sam Smith, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Jordan Rules"
