Luc Longley's Championship Season At Chicago.
They hold a national basketball record of seventy-two wins. They've won a fourth championship in six seasons. They're tagged by many as the Greatest Team Ever. The Chicago Bulls are a basketball legend.
Australian centre Luc Longley, the first Australian to play in the American NBA, takes us through an extraordinary season of hoops with the incomparable Chicago Bulls, from the signing of the outrageous Dennis Rodman, through the record-setting season and near faultless play-off campaign.
Longley takes his Aussie fans backstage for a slam dunk ride, a first-hand account of life behind the scenes - in the locker-rooms, on the club's private jet, team meetings and road trips.
He talks candidly about Michael Jordan, rebounder deluxe Rodman, Scottie Pippen and the brilliant basketball mind of coach Phil Jackson. Almost a hundred unique photographs illustrate the Bulls' charge, bringing their quest to life.
Longley's story is a compelling chronicle of one of sport's most intriguing and successful teams in a season that rewrote the record books.
