Michael Jordan: The Life by Roland Lazenby

mj the lifeRecommended by Tonio M. (winner Dominos gift card)

This is a great book to read if you really love basketball. This about the greatest player whoever played basketball. It talks about him being in the NBA and the games he played like the “Flu Game” he played with the flu and won for his team, the “Last Shot” and “The Shrug.” This book reminds me of the movie “Space Jam” in which Michael Jordan helped other people win basketball games to go to the championship. I love this book because I play basketball and he made history so reading this book motivates you to go harder in the game and to try to make it to the NBA like he did. I would only read this book if you play basketball or like Michael Jordan. I give this 4 stars and athletes should read this.

Black And White By Paul Volponi

black and whileRecommended by Demarco W.

Black And White is a very interesting book. If you like basketball or are interested in playing sports and like books that are about drama , I think this is the perfect book for you to read! This amazing, interesting book is about two young men named Marcus and Eddie. They are very good basketball players, all-stars on their school basketball team. Also they have accidentally killed someone, but they have not gotten caught yet. This book could be funny at times because there are about 10 profanity words in every almost every chapter of this book. I want others to read this book because when you read it, it feels like its a real life story. 

 

Travel Team by Mike Lupica

Travel teamRecommended by Kyla M.

If you love basketball and you never had anyone to look up to (father-wise) you would like this book. This book Travel Team is about a boy named Danny. He doesn’t have a father to look up to and he loves basketball. He played basketball since 5th grade and now he’s in 7th grade. Travel Team is just like the movie Space Jam. Danny thought he couldn’t be better than Ty Ross so he stay in the gym. MJ teammates thought they couldn’t beat the other team so they stayed in the gym to practice before the game. Travel Team stands out because Danny doesn’t have a father in his life, but yet he stills hold it down and make sure he’s a gentleman to females at all times. Travel Team talks about Danny’s old basketball team/ teammates and then it talks about him in the future. I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars.You should read this book if you like basketball.
