The 1980s were arguably the NBA s best decade, giving rise to Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Michael Jordan.
They were among the game s greatest players who brought pro basketball out of its 1970s funk and made it faster, more fluid, and more exciting. Off the court the game was changing rapidly too, with the draft lottery, shoe commercials, and a style driven largely by excess.
One player who personified the eighties excess is Micheal Ray Richardson. During his eight-year career in the NBA (1978 86), he was a four-time All-Star, twice named to the All-Defense team, and the first player to lead the league in both assists and steals. He was also a heavy cocaine user who went on days-long binges but continued to be signed by teams that hoped he d get straight. Eventually he was the first and only player to be permanently disqualified from the NBA for repeat drug use.
Tracking the rise, fall, and eventual redemption of Richardson throughout his playing days and subsequent coaching career, Charley Rosen describes the life defining pitfalls Richardson and other players faced and considers key themes such as off court and on court racism, anti-Semitism, womanizing, allegations of point shaving within the league, and drug and alcohol abuse by star players.
By constructing his various lines of narration around the polarizing figure of Richardson equal parts basketball savant, drug addict, and pariah Rosen illuminates some of the more unseemly aspects of the NBA during this period, going behind the scenes to provide an account of what the league s darker side was like during its celebrated golden age.
Review
Charley Rosen, the voice of NBA history, has dialed up a biography of Sugar Ray Richardson s experiences in life and basketball. Sugar is both a painful and empathetic experience of a man s quest to exorcise his demons. Basketball is his expression of joy, but life isn t that easy for Ray. It s a timepiece on NBA basketball in the 80s and on our society s ability to move through the blocks of our racial issues. -Phil Jackson
