    Why? Play books? Autobiography? Fundamentals?

    Dennis Rodman's autobiography "Bad as I wanna be" is one of the most fun reads I've had

    That was the one he promoted while wearing a wedding dress and makeup.

    The Last Shot by Darcy Frey is probably my favorite.

    Mitch Albom's " Fab Five". Even as an Ohio State fan, they captivated me as a kid and it's a great read.

    Yeah that's a good one. So is The Jordan Rules, Wilt Chamberlain's and Barkley's is pretty good as well.

    There's also another one "Tall Tales but True", about the beginnings of the NBA, if you want the history of the early NBA this is a cracker.
