Read Online Blood on the Horns: The Long Strange Ride of Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls

The press and the league buries their collective heads in the sand and ignores the lack of good basketball in favor of squeezing a few more cents out of the cash cow that was Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. Now, with all that said, if I had little interest in reading a book about the turmoil on the Bulls. The popular media was always portraying Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Phil Jackson as faultless angels and General Manager Jerry Krause and owner Jerry Reinsdorf as "bad guys" who want to rip the team apart, rebuild it, just to prove how good they are. Instead, Lazenby shows that the fault was everybody's. You saw the way all sides tried to manipulate the press and look good, rather than attempt to put apart their differences and work together to find a solution. You see how Jerry Krause prides himself on finding diamonds in the rough (such as Jackson, Pippen, and Kukoc) and how loyal he can be, such as helping Bill Cartwright find doctors who could repair his voice, long after he had left the Bulls.

Quando Jerry Krause morreu na temporada passada, o Bulls e a NBA em geral renderam inumeras homenagens ao ex-cartola do Chicago e deram muito crédito a ele pelos seis títulos do clube. Após algumas temporadas, Phil se tornou incontestável, e Jordan era uma figura que extrapolava o basquete. - Pippen se sentia muito injustiçado pela diretoria dos Bulls, a meu ver, com razão, seja nas questões financeiras, seja nas ameaças em ser trocado. Sem Jordan, Pippen nao teria nenhum.

I like the book and how it tells about his path.

Blood on the Horns by Roland Lazenby was full of interesting facts about Michael Jordan and his Long Strange Ride with the Chicago Bulls. On page 11, he states, What Jordans presence had meant to the NBA, to his team and to the struggling city of Chicago was almost beyond description. The theme of this book is All Good Things Must Come to an End. Jordan had led the Bulls to five championships over the past seven seasons, page 15. However, player conflicts, larger than life personalities, and huge payrolls would eventually be the death of this amazing run of basketball greatness. Blood on the Horns is an informative book about professional basketball and its all-time greatest player.
