Kobe e la compagnia degli anelli
Tutti i formati dell'opera
Nella storia moderna dello sport, non ci sono mai stati due campioni del calibro di Kobe Bryant e Shaquille O’Neal che si detestassero così tanto. Dalle frecciatine e gli attacchi pubblici a veri e propri scontri fisici, era guerra aperta.
Tuttavia, nonostante otto anni di ostilità, talvolta mediate e talvolta incoraggiate dal coach Phil Jackson, il duo Kobe-Shaq si è rivelato una delle accoppiate più vincenti nella storia dell’NBA: un rapporto teso e inquieto, ma che sul campo ha sempre fatto scintille, arrivando a conquistare tre anelli consecutivi e milioni di tifosi in tutto il mondo.
Un viaggio lungo otto anni per scoprire tutti i retroscena e i segreti degli anni d’oro del Black Mamba in NBA, protagonista di una carriera che ha sempre e comunque fatto parlare di sé.

The Author claims he’s painting a real picture of Kobe during this era (similar to how MJ was shown in The Last Dance). The Last Dance was executed better because MJ was still shown as the man and an iconic hooper in The Last Dance. Imagine if they said Jordan was a bad person and left it at that. T Leggi tutto
My formative years were spent watching and loving this team. They were my heroes and I lived and died by what the Lakers did on the court. However, I did not realize the true extent of the drama that went on off the court. Jeff Pearlman paints a vivid picture of the dysfunction that enveloped this t Leggi tutto
Pearlman is pretty tough on everybody here, and I’m not sure he’s completely fair. He thinks coach Jackson is an elitist, Shaq lazy and Kobe arrogant; the last two to a Shakespearean degree. But this is a good book, well researched. Btw Pearlman’s book on USFL is a real hoot.
All style, no substance. Despite an entertaining - if slightly juvenile - writing style, this book takes over 400 pages to tell a story that could’ve been told in substantially less. Even though I’m no Kobe fan, the author rags on him constantly, never ever touching on his basketball mastery. Instea Leggi tutto
I liked Pearlman's earlier book about the Lakers so I thought I would try this one too. It does what it says on the label! I knew there would be a lot of reminiscing and gossip, but I didn't realize that I would be reading about three of the most stubborn and intransigent humans on Earth. Probably I Leggi tutto
Really fun read for the in-depth sports fan
This book was far from what I expected going into it. By the halfway point I was delighted (as someone who actively cheers for the lakers to lose) that the tone of the book seemed unsympathetic to the lakers and particularly Kobe Bryant. I went into the experience expecting nothing but praise for ou Leggi tutto
Overall, this was a disappointing read. Pearlman excels at telling the dirt on everyone and unflinchingly pointing out their flaws. As he wrote in this review of dysfunctional basketball, everyone was either a Kobe guy or a Shaq guy. Pearlman was definitely NOT a Kobe guy. To believe this tale, ther Leggi tutto
Best sports book I've ever read. Not hyperbole either.
