Publisher's Summary

When legendary NBA coach Phil Jackson took over the beleaguered Los Angeles Lakers in 1999, the sports world was watching closely. Would Jackson's famous "Zen" approach to basketball work in the klieg-light atmosphere of L.A.?

As it turned out, Jackson was observing himself and his new team closely too, collaborating with his good friend Charley Rosen to record the resoundingly successful 1999-2000 season - which culminated in the Lakers wining the NBA title. Together they documented everything from the challenges of bringing discipline and focus to a talented Lakers team that had failed to achieve its potential, to their views on the state of the NBA. This is a fascinating insider's story about the founding of a new Lakers dynasty and the triumph of Phil Jackson's hardwood metaphysics.

More than a game

The book was excellent! It was like having a private conversation with Phil Jackson. I learned great things from this book.
