Description

In this fascinating biography of basketball superstar George Mikan, Michael Schumacher chronicles the life and career of a player so dominating that he literally changed the way the game was played and, in the process, helped launch the fledgling National Basketball Association. Mikan's Hall of Fame career included numerous national titles-in college with DePaul and five times in the pros with the Minneapolis Lakers. Named the greatest basketball player of the first half of the twentieth century, "Mr. Basketball" cast such a large shadow that the Madison Square Garden marquee, in announcing an upcoming game, simply said, "George Mikan vs. the Knicks."
