    Book overview
    This hardcover first edition of Game Face: A Lifetime of Hard-Earned Lessons On and Off the Basketball Court is personally autographed by Bernard King.
     
    NBA Hall of Famer Bernard King is one of the most dynamic scorers in basketball history. King was notoriously private as a player, and rarely spoke to the press-not about his career and never about his personal life. And even beyond his prolific scoring, King will forever be remembered for the gruesome knee injury he suffered in 1985. Doctors who told him he'd never play again were shocked when he not only became the first player to return to the NBA from a torn ACL, but returned at an All Star level. In Game Face, King finally opens up about his life on and off the court. In his book, King's basketball I.Q. is on full display as he breaks down defenses using his own unique system for taking shots from predetermined spots on the floor. King talks about matching up against some of the all-time NBA greats, from Michael Jordan, Julius Erving and Charles Barkley to Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing and many others. He also tackles issues of race and family off the court, as well as breaking a personal cycle of negativity and self-destructiveness with the help of his family. Engaging, shocking, revelatory, yet always positive and upbeat, Bernard King's memoir appeals to multiple generations of basketball fans.

    About The Author

    Bernard King, NBA Hall of Famer, and a college basketball legend, was one of the most explosive scorers in the history of the NBA. Though his NBA career included major knee reconstruction - costing him two years in the prime of his career - King returned to the court despite great odds. He proved skeptics wrong when, at 34, he became the oldest player at that time to start on an NBA All-Star team. King poured in more than 19,000 points in a career spent with the New Jersey Nets, Utah Jazz, Golden State Warriors, New York Knicks and Washington Bullets.
