2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On March 4, 1990, Hank Gathers, one of Loyola Marymount's star basketball players, suddenly collapsed and died of heart failure on the court. He left millions of television viewers, watching live, stunned and speechless. He also left his best friend, Bo Kimble, a tremendous legacy. On the court they were known as "The Hank and Bo Show," the most promising players in the NCAA of their time. Yet they were more than just teammates, more than just players. From their first meeting on a playground as kids, they were inseparable. In the tradition of Bang the Drum Slowly and Brian's Song, For You, Hank is the story of a unique friendship. Supportive, humorous, and even competitive, Hank Gathers' and Bo Kimble's friendship was forged and carried, from the broken asphalt playgrounds of North Philadelphia to the gleaming basketball courts of Los Angeles. And it was a friendship nurtured by their families; supported by Father Dave, who helped them survive Philly's mean streets; and encouraged by Loyola's Dave Spencer, who pushed them to work to their potentials. It was a friendship that ended in tragedy and triumphed in love. For upon Hank's death Bo found himself alone, but inspired by his friend's dreams. From his first left-handed free throw tribute to Hank at the NCAA finals to his place in the NBA on the L.A. Clippers, Bo has fulfilled his vow to carry on the vision he and Hank shared all their lives. Heart-wrenching and poignant, funny and tragic, Bo Kimble's honest portrayal of his friendship with Hank Gathers is, ultimately a testimony to the resilience of the human spirit
