Alexander Wolff, author of Big Game, Small World: A Basketball Adventure and The Audacity of Hoop: Basketball and the Age of Obama
Todd Spehr has knocked one down from half court with his thorough, well-researched tome that captures the spirit of one of European basketball’s legendary figures. Petro was a unique talent and personality, and Spehr takes the reader inside to tell the story, with clarity and reverence.”
Kerry Eggers, Portland Tribune
I worked with Dražen Petrovic for two years when I was an assistant coach with the Nets in the early 90s, and he was one of the greatest shooters I ever saw. As a person he was authentic, fun-loving, and vigilant in his pursuit of greatness. Dražen single-handedly proved to the basketball world that European players could become stars in the NBA. And while his NBA tenure was tragically short, his contribution to the history of our game was gigantic."
Rick Carlisle, head coach, Dallas Mavericks
Spehr has produced a richly detailed account of how Petrovic drove himself to excel and reach the competitive pinnacle of his sport, just as the NBA began to take on a global persona.”
