Synopsis: Pub Date: 1993-11-01 Pages: 336 Language: English Publisher: HarperCollins Book by Haywood. Spencer

From Publishers Weekly: A member of the gold medal-winning U.S. basketball team at the 1968 Olympics, Haywood later won a landmark Supreme Court case that established the ``hardship'' rule, which allowed college players to turn professional at any time. His skills propelled him to the top of the pro ranks as a star for Denver, Seattle, New York and, after a stint in Europe, Washington. His poignant autobiography, written with freelancer Ostler, chronicles troubles with incompetent and/or dishonest agents, an unsuccessful marriage to a fashion model and an addiction to drugs that nearly destroyed his career. What will stick in readers' minds, however, is Haywood's portrait of life in a family ``a step below poor'' in a Mississippi Delta town during the 1950s and 1960s, when the pangs of hunger were nothing compared to the humiliation of growing up in a society whose white members regarded blacks as subhuman, fun to shoot at or to use as targets on the golf driving range. These passages are chilling. Author tour.
