God and Starbucks
- An NBA Superstar's Journey Through Addiction and Recovery
- By: Vin Baker
- Narrated by: Arnell Powell
- Length: 8 hrs and 51 mins
Sixteen years ago Vin Baker was an NBA All-Star, an Olympic Gold medalist, and a multimillionaire. While he excelled on the court, Vin harbored a dark secret: a dependency on drugs and alcohol that began after the clean-cut preacher's son turned pro. Eventually becoming a full-blown yet functional alcoholic, Vin convinced himself he played better under the influence - until his addiction cost him his basketball career, his fortune, and his health. But Vin's story isn't a tragic fall from grace. It is a joyous tale of salvation.

An incredible story. Definitely not a professional writer. But a great perspective into a world the general public doesn’t know much about.
