Changing the Game tells the story of how a short, Jewish kid from Compton became an All-American point guard, went head-to-head with Bill Russell, became friends with John Wooden, worked for Ty Cobb, taught Kobe Bryant, turned down the NBA draft to become a Presbyterian minister and psychotherapist, and dedicated his life to helping kids everywhere rediscover the magic of sports and movement. This inspiring memoir offers life lessons for everyone.
