    He was allowed access to everything, including sitting in during coaches meetings. If you want to know more about D'Antoni and how he operates and runs a team, this book gives a lot of insight.

    Just as an NBA fan it's a good read to get an inside view of an NBA team... but now especially that the Rockets will hire Mike D'Antoni as the head coach.

    Jack McCallum also wrote "Unfinished Business," which prominently features that other Rockets coach, including on its cover:

    Hmmm... McCallum's next book is about the 1992 Dream Team. So, when Les fires D'Antoni, the likely successor is... Charles Barkley?

    OP, anything that stood out in the book? Did it away your opinion of D'Antoni one way or another?
