Jack Scott embeds himself with the Blazers for their championship season, but he spends too much of the book recounting his personal run in with the FBI over a number of years in the 70s. The insight into Bill Walton and the rest of the team is wonderful. The 1977 Blazers are often over looked because they did not win back to back championship, but they were a fantastic team that could go toe to toe with any of the more famous dynasty teams. If Scott would have focused on the basketball and the players and less on his own personal legal trouble more this book would be a must read.

As a big fan of Bill Walton, I went into this book with relatively high expectations. The book did not remotely live up to it. The book feels entirely unedited and just appears as stream of consciousness meanderings that at least tangentially involve Bill. More pressing issues are Scott's self-importance and his political agenda. He never misses a chance to politicize something, even when what he cites doesn't make ANY sense for his point or when it only works devoid of context. He also constantly feels the need to promote himself, discussing all the big, important thing he's done in his illustrious career as an smarter-than-you intellectual. This makes much of the book condescending, as people who don't agree with him are generally summed up as not knowing what they're talking about, being misinformed, or twisting facts. The book offers a lot about Bill's everyday life during the dates covered in the book as well as his first two seasons in Portland. As far as insight into Bill Walton, there isn't much. Everything Scott says about Bill is overly effusive. One would almost think he walked on water. Even things like Walton insulting his meat-eating teammates early on in his career were glossed over, while he highlights how Bill spoke well of his teammates in interviews. All-in-all, Bill Walton: On The Road With The Portland Trail Blazers is not worth reading.

THIS BOOK IS ABOUT BILL WALTON AND THE CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON OF THE PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS IN 1977. THE BOOK COVERS SOME OF THE CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING BILL WALTON LIKE THE PATTI HURST DRAMA,HIS REBELIOUS ATTITUDE, DRUGS AND HIPPIE LIFESTYLE. MOST OF THE BOOK CONCERNS BILL'S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE AUTHOR AND THE DETAILED MARCH TO THE NBA CHAMPIONSHIP. I ENJOYED THIS BOOK AND RECOMMEND IT FOR ALL BASKETBALL FANS, ESPECIALLY FOR BLAZER FANS.

AN ENTERTAINING READ.
