Summary
  • "This big-hearted memoir by the most promising professional basketball player of his generation details his rise to NBA stardom, the terrible accident that ended his career and plunged him into a life-altering depression, and how he ultimately found his way out of the darkness"--Amazon.com
  • Ten years ago Williams was at the beginning of a brilliant professional basketball career, the Chicago Bulls' top draft pick. Then he ran his motorcycle head-on into a light pole, severely damaging himself and ending his career. In this intense, hard-hitting, and deeply profound memoir Williams talks about the accident that transformed him from a kid who had it all, thought he was invincible, and lost everything ... only to gain new wisdom. He shares behind the scenes details of life as an All-American, but also introduces us to a dark underworld culture in the pros: the gambling, drugs, and sex in every city, with players on every team
Summary
In a candid, no-holds-barred memoir, the former Chicago Bulls' top draft pick talks about the accident that ended his career and sent him down a new path, shares behind-the-scenes details of life as an All-American and speaks out about corruption in the NBA
