    • Just Ballin' chronicles the 1999 New York Knicks turbulent and crazy road to the NBA Finals. Written by acclaimed sportswriters Mike Isola (Sports Illustrated) and Frank Wise (New York Times), Just Ballin' gives readers a complete inside view of the Knicks' locker room, coaching staff, and front office. Prior to the season, GM Ernie Grunfeld had traded two of the team's longtime fan favorites in Charles Oakley and John Starks. In return, he acquired one of the most controversial athletes in spor [...]


    • This is a great book for any basketball fan. The 1999 NBA season was one to remember for a Knicks fan. Despite being a strike shortened season it was my favorite season ever. The Knicks went on to make the NBA finals where they lost but they surprised everyone including me just by making it that far. This book breaks down the Knicks season from off-season management descisons to post season thrillers. The reason why I like this book so much is that while it is factual there is a pro-Knick bias, [...]


    • The 1999 Knicks were an interesting team. They traded veteran leader Charles Oakley for young, talented, yet disappointing Marcus Camby. They took a big risk in signing Latrell Sprewell after he served a suspension for choking his coach at Golden State. And just when it seemed the team would fall apart after Patrick Ewing's injury became more and more apparent that he would miss the season, and coach Jeff Van Gundy would be fired (while the team was secretly interviewing Phil Jackson), they came [...]


    • Very interesting and entertaining read on the Knicks unlikely march to the 99 Finals. Considering the subject (New York basketball) and the background (Sprewell just coming off his suspension for choking his coach) this book probably should be more popular than it is. It's not "Ball Four" or anything but it's a fairly in depth look at a fascinating sports franchise facing a critical juncture in it's history. Plus, considering how the last decade has been for Knick fans, this book will be a delig [...]


    • The 1999 Knicks are easily one of my favorite teams of all time in any sports. Therefore it was easy for me to suck in this book and relive that roller-coster season with that magical play-off run. As a european, I had to watch most of these games at night. But I never regreted turning up at school red-eyed on the next day. The book is well written and gives an insight on the old favorites (Starks, Oakley, Pat, LJ) as well as the new leaders of the team (Spree, Houston, Camby). Can't believe alm [...]


    • Although the title may be more appropriate for a Jenna Jameson biography, this is nonetheless a tremendous book about what is perhaps one of my Top 5 favorite topics to ponder: the 1999 Knicks march to the NBA Finals. Given the fact that I am about 1 of perhaps 50 people who is interested in this topic, I will stop now.
