KD : Kevin Durant's relentless pursuit to be the greatest by Marcus Thompson( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an incredible first season with Golden State, Kevin Durant earned the coveted NBA Finals MVP award: he was the Warriors' top scorer in every game of the 2017 Finals, helping the team snatch the title from LeBron James and the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers. As a sports columnist for The Athletic Bay Area, and longtime beat reporter covering the Golden State Warriors, Marcus Thompson is perfectly positioned to trace Durant's inspirational journey. KD follows Durant's underdog story from his childhood spent in poverty outside DC; to his rise playing on AAU teams with future NBA players; to becoming a star and hometown hero for the Oklahoma Thunder; to his controversial decision to play for the NBA rival Golden State Warriors; to his growth from prodigy into a man, in the first true inside account of this superstar player."--Amazon

Getting open : the unknown story of Bill Garrett and the integration of college basketball by Rachel Cody( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Bill Garrett was the first black basketball player in the prestigious Big Ten college conference. He earned his basketball reputation at Shelbyville High School in Indiana, where he was named the state's Mr. Basketball in 1947. The authors, a father-daughter team with roots in Shelbyville, split their focus between the story of an extraordinary young man and the political battle waged on his behalf by the leader of the world's largest black YMCA and Indiana University's visionary president. Indiana seemed an unlikely setting for the integration of Big Ten basketball, given its reputation as the most racist of northern states, but basketball-crazy Hoosiers rose to the occasion. Recently much attention has been directed to Texas Western's all-black 1966 NCAA champions, but before there could be five black starters, there had to be one. Garrett's story--which includes a successful career as a coach and educator before a premature death at 45 from a heart attack--adds a little-known but fascinating chapter to the story of the integration of American sports. --Wes Lukowsky.
