More than a Game is the odyssey of Jackson's journey—from New York Knick and world champion, to CBA coach, to six-time Chicago Bulls world champion, to this year's L.A. Lakers world champion—and the lessons in leadership he learned each step of the way. It is the tale of Rosen's journey as well, carrying the torch for the game of basketball through careers as star college player, CBA coach, and preeminent novelist of the game. It is also the story of the system jackson coaches, the powertriangle, as put forth by Lakers assistant coach Tex Winter. The triangle can be understood as a philosophy of basketball and life—one that values role players almost as much as star players, and where fundamentals rule. More Than a Game is also a story of the friendship between Jackson and Rosen, forged in the sacred brotherhood of the hoop.

When sportswriter Charley Rosen interviewed Phil Jackson in 1973 for an article in Sport magazine he discovered that he and the young New York Knicks player had an identical passion for basketball and similar philosophies of how the game should be played. During their long friendship that spans both the decades and a host of top basketball teams, Phil went on to become head coach of the all-conquering Chicago Bulls, winning six NBA Championships. Meanwhile Charley published five basketball novels and was described by the Washington Post as the 'foremost chronicler of the game'. MORE THAN A GAME charts both men's pursuit of the purity at the heart of the game.

Basketball player, coach, and critically acclaimed novelist CHARLEY ROSEN played for Hunter College from 1959–62, where he set school records for scoring and rebounding, and was voted team MVP all three years. He went on to play for the US Maccabiah team in 1961, for Camden and Scranton in the Eastern League (a forerunner of the Continental Basketball Association) in 1962, and was a member of the bronze-medal-winning team in the World Senior Games in 1994.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lakers fans will like it, Bulls fans will be disappointed 23. Juli 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a good book to read, but I wouldn't consider it a complete autobiography of Phil Jackson. This book primarily covers the 1999-2000 season where Phil coached the Lakers to their first title since '88. There is very little about his tenure with the Bulls which is why I say that Bulls fans will be disappointed when they read it. And then it switches over from Charley Rosen writing to Phil writing and back and forth. On the positive for Lakers fans, Phil goes into great detail on how he brought a dysfunctional Laker team together and took them to the promised land.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Book ROCKS 27. März 2001
Von MoneyB - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Wow. I just finished reading "More Than A Game" and loved every damn page of it. I initially bought this book simply because I am a huge Jackson fan, but I ended up enjoying Charley Rosen's chapters just as much. I will definitely be reading more of his work in the future as a result of reading this book. This is an insightful, funny book that is very difficult to put down.
Taking a look at their love for the game of basketball, Jackson and Rosen do an excellent job of showing the importance of finding beauty, selflessness, and transcendence in any job that one may have. They are very candid in their writing, which I appreciated as a reader. The book also contains a glossary and charts which explain the different plays and systems they describe in the book - including Tex Winter's triangle offense. For someone who has never coached a team, these made all the difference in the world to me as I read the book.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone. Period. This book is about so much more than basketball, which I suppose is what makes the title so fitting.

3.0 von 5 Sternen More than a Game by Phil Jackson and Charlie Rosen 14. März 2005
Von Kyle - Veröffentlicht auf
More than a Game is one of those books that is entertaining and interesting, but only applies to a certain type of people. Coaches and basketball enthusiasts will enjoy this book, but you should pass if you don't particularly like the sport of basketball. Phil Jackson, former coach of the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls, gives insight into the strategic world of basketball, from the past to the present. Charlie Rosen, a former college player, coauthors the book. However, More than a Game is focused more on Phil Jackson. The book shows the background of two talented, intelligent basketball players from different regions-- Charlie from the city, and Phil from the country. They mesh perfectly as a dynamic duo. This book also gives insight to the formation of the Triangle offense, something that has perplexed the basketball audience for years. This is a great read for anyone who followed the Chicago Bulls and/or Los Angeles Lakers championship years. The glossary and play diagrams at the end of the book are helpful and descriptive. A minor basketball fan could understand the book, but only a coach or basketball intellectual could truly enjoy it. More than a Game is a good book if you enjoy basketball and admire the genius of Phil Jackson, but like I said, it's not for everyone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Different Approach, But What Would You Expect 6. März 2001
Von Roland Lazenby - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book alternates between sections written from the differing perspectives of Phil Jackson and co-author Charley Rosen. Phil offers up his trademark candor about his teams and personal life, and Rosen produces what he always has: nicely written revelations about a range of topics that have intersected Jackson's life, from the CBA to longtime assistant coach Tex Winter.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A great book is in there somewhere 22. April 2001
Von C. Smith - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a quick, fun read without a lot of depth. That is unfortunate, because the theme - an homage to Tex Winter's triangle offense as "pure" basketball - is worth exploring in depth. I enjoyed the book, but the sloppy editing, particularly in Phil's chapters, interfered with that enjoyment. If you haven't read "Sacred Hoops," start there. If you like that one, this is a lesser, but still enjoyable sequel.
