It&́#x80;™s hard to believe, but Dick Vitale, ESPN&́#x80;™s perennially youthful basketball analyst, is 75. From his blue-collar roots in New Jersey, his first college coaching job at Rutgers, his ultimate dream job with the Pistons (where he got the Ziggy!), to his 35 years at ESPN as a "Prime-time Performer." This is Vitale as you've never seen him, an inside look at America&́#x80;™s favorite basketball fan. Learn the secret of his longevity in the fast-changing world of TV. More than the personal memories, "Dickie V" provides the die-hard hoops fan with his outspoken opinions on a range of topics including: the most intriguing coaches, players, and owners in the sport; the growth of "one-and-dones" leaving for the NBA draft; the increase in player transfers; out-of-control fan behavior; recruiting top notch players; and the changing landscape of college sports following conference realignment. You'll get to know 75 years worth of history, facts, and opinions, as well as his thoughts on family, the game of basketball, and his passionate fight against childhood cancer. This book will give you new insights into Dick Vitale, both the sportscaster and the humanitarian.
