Joe Lapchick is a legendary figure in the history of basketball: a Hall of Fame player and member of the original Celtics barnstorming team, a coach of four national championship teams at St. John's, and the first coach of the New York Knicks. The first and only biography of Lapchick, the book transcends mere biography and provides a priceless look at the history of the game, including early rule changes and the era of barnstorming teams, dramatic NIT championship games (when the NIT was "the "tournament in the nation), the point-shaving scandals in college basketball, the formation of the NBA, and the integration of professional black players (including Sweetwater Clifton, the first black member of the Knicks, who played for Lapchick). This book is a must-read for any basketball fan with a passion for the game.
