The Wisdom of Phil Jackson

Wed Jan 5, 2005

I read his The Last Season in a chain retailer yesterday. Early on, and I didn’t note the citation, but early on he notes that Detroit was not a very good team. Granted, this was before they acquired Rasheed Wallace, but I wonder if his ghostwriter or his editor might have caught that.

Similarly, he at one point says that Kareem Rush was, after Kobe, the best athlete on the team. A hundred or so pages later, that honor goes to Devean George.

I wonder if any scholarship has been done on ghostwritten sports memoirs? What form could it take?
