LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Original Dream Team: Portrait of the Game," by Tony Anthony, Lloyd Battista and Stephen Jaffe, is just out today (Amazon.com – Shoreham Publishing) and tells the story of the greatest team ever assembled, in their own words and those of the great sportswriters, quoting Michael Jordan, 'Magic' Johnson, Larry Bird and all of the 12 NBA Hall of Famers. The late coach Chuck Daly is quoted as saying: "You will see another team of professionals but I don't think you'll ever see another team like this."
Dick Gregory, world famous comedian, author and lecturer, reviewed the book and says, "The team which created this book are filmmakers and in every instance, they went for the dramatic line of sports' history. They highlight the inherent drama of every play, every game, every deeply moving human event in their 'Portrait of the Game.'
"One of the most arresting qualities of this book," Gregory says, "is that you get all the players and events, in the participants' and witnesses' own words – each from their own perspective, as in a sporting version of the classic Japanese film, 'Roshomon.'"
The E-Book version is available on Amazon.com/Kindle Books ($9.99) and will be available in hardcover and audio in the next few weeks.
