The legends club : Dean Smith, Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Valvano, and an epic college basketball rivalry by John Feinstein( Book )
11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,320 libraries worldwide
On March 18, 1980, the immensely powerful Duke basketball program announced the hiring of its new coach -- the man who would resurrect the team, restore glory to Duke, and defeat the legendary Dean Smith, who coached down the road at UNC Chapel Hill and had turned UNC into a powerhouse. Duke's new man was Mike Krzyzewski. The only problem was, no one knew who Krzyzewski was, he had a so-so record in his short time as head coach of Army, and worst of all, no one could even pronounce his name. The announcement caused head scratches -- if not immediate calls for his head -- and on this note his career at Duke began. The table was set nine days later, when on March 27, 1980, Jim Valvano was hired by North Carolina State to be their new head coach. The hiring didn't raise as many eyebrows, but with the exuberant Valvano on board, two new coaches were now in place to challenge Dean Smith -- and the most sensational competitive decade in history was about to unfold. The Legends Club captures an era in American sport and culture, documenting the inside view of a decade of absolutely incredible competition. Feinstein pulls back the curtain on the recruiting wars, the intensely personal competition that wasn't always friendly, the enormous pressure and national stakes, and the battle for the very soul of college basketball allegiance in a hot-bed area

Red Auerbach, the most successful and admired coach in basketball history, tells the best stories of a legendary life. Auerbach led the Boston Celtics to nine NBA championships--eight consecutive--during his 17 years tenure in Boston, from 1950 to 1966. The fiery coach is a unique personality--brash, opinionated, and unfailingly accurate. As a coach, he never stood still along the sidelines, and in retirement he remains a lively part of the game, still consulted by coaches, players, and general managers at age 86. For years, Feinstein has met regularly with Auerbach and his friends, drawing out Red's life story in a raucous series of sessions, colorful stories about all the players and coaches Red has worked with and played against over the years. Bob Cousy, Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Sam Jones, Bill Russell, and Michael Jordan--you name them, the basketball greats are all here.--From publisher description
