Product description

Review

Praise for The Sixth Man
"The best basketball memoir since Bill Russell's Go up for Glory...a sports memoir for the ages."--Booklist (starred review)

"Iguodala's story is a compelling and important one that provides a glimpse into what people of color face, from little boys to the height of stardom, in a country 'designed to wreak absolute havoc on the confidence of black people.'"--Shelf Awareness

"A true insider's perspective of the Warriors' championship teams."--Library Journal

"A fascinating look at the intersection of class, race and basketball."--Axios

"A riveting read by one of the NBA's sharpest minds."--Forbes

"A deeply personal look at Iguodala's life growing up in Springfield, Ill., with his single mother and brother, who he says taught him how to be a defender early on. In reflective, conversational prose, Iguodala recounts his early awareness of segregation and racism, the strength and influence of the strong women in his life (and later, coaches), and his gradual realization of how to best harness his intelligence, ambition and drive."--Datebook
