"A dramatic change took place when a new coach came to the Lakers at the start of the season. He was none other than Phil Jackson, the man who had coached the Bulls to their six championships in the 1990s. Jackson was a storied figure, with more mystique than any coach in NBA history. Under his enlightened guidance, the Lakers finally made it all the way to the finals, where they beat the Indiana Pacers and seized the NBA championship that had eluded them for years. But after their amazing victory, Jackson warned his team that repeating their victory in the coming season would be much harder than getting that initial win. His players didn't believe him

The eternal party : understanding my dad, Larry Hagman, the TV star America loved to hate by Kristina Hagman( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When you have a very famous father, like mine, everyone thinks they know him. My Dad, Larry Hagman, portrayed the storied, ruthless oilman JR on the TV series Dallas. He was the man everyone loved to hate, but he had a personal reputation of being a nice guy who fully subscribed to his motto: Have Fun, Don't Worry, Be Happy. Dad had a famous parent too, Mary Martin, known from many roles on Broadway, most memorably as Peter Pan. Off-stage she was a kind, elegant woman, who maintained the down home charm of her Texas roots. Both were performers to the core of their beings, masters at crafting their public images. They were beloved. And their relationship was complex and often fraught. My father never apologized for anything, even when he was wrong. But in the hours before he died, when I was alone with him in his hospital room, he begged for forgiveness. In his delirium he could not tell me what troubled him but somehow I found the words to comfort him. After he died I was compelled to learn why he felt the need to be forgiven. As I solved the troubling mystery of why my happy-go-lucky, pot-smoking, LSD-taking Dad had spent his last breaths begging to be forgiven, I also came to know my father and grandmother better than I had known them in life."--Dust jacket flap
