A must read Dec 4, 2003
If you're a Knicks fan - or even just a basketball junkie - Garden Glory is for you. An easy read with great stories told by those who lived it. I could never have gone to the Old Garden, but the mental pictures the book creates is marvelous.
But the big unanswered question that I need to know is: What was Spree REALLY wearing when they came to his house in Milwaukee?
A must read...
