about

In the tradition of The Boys of Summer and The Bronx Is Burning, New York Times sports columnist Harvey Araton delivers a fascinating look at the 1970s New York Knicks—part autobiography, part sports history, part epic, set against the tumultuous era when Walt Frazier, Willis Reed, and Bill Bradley reigned supreme in the world of basketball. Perfect for readers of Jeff Pearlman’s The Bad Guys Won!, Peter Richmond’s Badasses, and Pat Williams’s Coach Wooden, Araton’s revealing story of the Knicks’ heyday is far more than a review of one of basketball’s greatest teams’ inspiring story—it is, at heart, a stirring recreation of a time and place when the NBA championships defined the national dream.
Harvey Araton has been a sports columnist for theNew York Timessince 1991. He lives in Montclair, New Jersey, with his wife and two hoops-loving sons.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a team for the ages Such a great era of New York Knicks' basketball deserved a great book. This one does it in as many colorful Clyde Frazier adjectives you can drum up. There's also updates on what all the protagonists are up to now and those who passed away accomplished after the two NBA championship seasons in the early '70s.
