Playing for Knight: My Six Seasons with Coach Knight by Steve Alford
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A couple bucks in a Borders clearance bin and an interesting read. You get a little different perspective on some of Knight’s shenanigans, but shenanigans they remain. The fact that Alford came through the experience and reflected on the positives he learned probably says more about Steve Alford than it does Bob Knight. It was interesting to read his daydream at the end about his son playing for Knight at IU in 2010. I suppose then it seemed Knight was firmly ensconced and would retire with honor after a long productive career at Indiana. I guess we know the rest of that story. Good read for fans of the college game and some interesting bits with other big name players of the day.
