Discorsi sul basket: Filosofia e arte del Gioco (Italian Edition)

Cos’è il basket se non un gruppo di giganteschi super-atleti che si battono in uno spazio ridottissimo, con l’imperativo di evitare i contatti, a una velocità pazzesca e tutto sotto l’incubo del Tempo che scorre e che domina incontrastato il gioco della pallacanestro? E cosa facciamo noi allenatori se non inseguire la Grande Illusione di mettere ordine nel caos, come tanti Achab alla caccia di Moby Dick? Simone Rosi procede per idee filosofiche e autori, come nei più tradizionali manuali di storia della filosofia, senonché contrappunta ogni idea con aspetti del gioco del basket, scavando nel loro significato e nella loro funzione rispetto alla complessità di questo sport. Sembrerebbe un esercizio retorico e a volte lo è, ma in molti casi risulta invece illuminante per chi conosce e ama il basket. Quando per esempio utilizza la concezione della Nazione di Polibio per spiattellare una teoria delle dinamiche del gioco di squadra o delle funzioni della leadership, la sua esposizione è di un’efficacia sorprendente e sarebbe di grande utilità agli allenatori che volessero andare oltre le lavagnette e i manuali di tecnica cestista. (Dalla prefazione di Valerio Bianchini).

In today’s world of ESPN Sports Center and the Top 10 Plays of the Day it’s easy to get lost in a world of sports, flamboyant players and instant celebrity. This life, if you let it, can chew you up and spit you out with just the blink of an eye. The addiction and curiosity we’re all guilty of having when it comes to watching these guys put on a show has become our most favorite past time. <br /><br />In the ‘70’s the city of Louisville, KY was known for producing some of the best basketball talent in the world. Wes Unseld, Michael Redd, Henry Bacon, Ron Thomas, Ron King, Otto Petty, Tom Payne, Larry Harrelson, Wesley Cox, Wayne Golden, Ronnie Daniels, Flenoil Crook, Robert Miller, Darrell Griffith, Durand Macklin, Jeff Lamp, Lee Raker, Jerry Eaves, Winston Bennett, Tony Kimbro, Felton Spencer, Herbert Crook, Allan Houston, Dwayne Morton, Jermaine Brown, Maurice Morris, Jason Osbourne, Danyell Macklin, DeJuan Wheat, Derek Anderson and of course Bobby Turner. <br /><br />Moving to Louisville from Alabama Bobby quickly took the spotlight and achieved athletic success at an early age. He became one of the most competitive and powerful basketball players Louisville, KY would ever see. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for Bobby’s fame and basketball success to cause this young man the pain and disappointment he never thought he’d experience, especially being a part of a sport he loved so much.<br /><br />Most of us think we know the story of this legendary athlete just as I did. The life and times of Bobby Turner will bring a completely unique perspective to how you start may or may not depend on how you finish. The unexpected twists and turns of his life were moments of celebration, winning, tragedy, loss, deception, alleged blackmail and ultimatums. He never gave up, he never quit. <br /><br />The mental toughness he learned to have on the court would soon help him off the court, the court of life.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER</b><br />  <br /> Acclaimed sports journalist Jack McCallum delivers the untold story of the greatest team ever assembled: the 1992 U.S. Olympic Men’s Basketball Team. As a writer for <i>Sports Illustrated, </i>McCallum enjoyed a courtside seat for the most exciting basketball spectacle on earth, covering the Dream Team from its inception to the gold medal ceremony in Barcelona. Drawing on fresh interviews with the players, McCallum provides the definitive account of the Dream Team phenomenon. He offers a behind-the-scenes look at the controversial selection process. He takes us inside the team’s Olympic suites for late-night card games and bull sessions where superstars like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird debated the finer points of basketball. And he narrates a riveting account of the legendary intrasquad scrimmage that pitted the Dream Teamers against one another in what may have been the greatest pickup game in history. In the twenty years since the Dream Team first captivated the world, its mystique has only grown. <i>Dream Team </i>vividly re-creates the moment when a once-in-a-millennium group of athletes came together and changed the future of sports—one perfectly executed fast break at a time.<br />  <br /> <b>With a new Afterword by the author</b>.<br />  <br /> “The absolute definitive work on the subject, a perfectly wonderful once-you-pick-it-up-you-won’t-be-able-to-put-it-down book.”—<i>The Boston Globe</i><br />  <br /> “An Olympic hoops dream.”—<i>Newsday</i><br /> <i> </i><br /> “What makes this volume a must-read for nostalgic hoopsters are the robust portraits of the outsize personalities of the participants, all of whom were remarkably open with McCallum, both then and now.”—<i>Booklist</i> (starred review)

<p>In a rousing trip through the worlds of Basketball and Football, George Thomas Clark explores the professional basketball league in Mexico, the Herculean talents of Wilt Chamberlain, the difficulties and humor of attempting to play basketball in middle age, and observes that coaching at Caltech can be more painful than studying all night for a physics exam.

Simpson, major college football players being exploited by the NCAA and university bureaucrats, the rise and fall of the USC Trojans, issues of alcoholism, substance abuse, and domestic violence, and more.</p><br /><p>Half the stories are straight nonfiction and others are satirical pieces guided by the unwavering hand of an inspired storyteller.</p>
