Like elvis, he paid a terrible price, becoming a prisoner of his own fame. But that dream continues to exact a price on Pete's own sons. A renowned biographer—people magazine called him “a master”—Kriegel renders his subject with a style that is, by turns, heartbreaking, lyrical, and electric.
But even more enduring than the numbers was the sense of ecstasy and artistry with which he played. He was basketball's answer to Elvis, a white Southerner who sold Middle America on a black man's game. Pistol pete, a ballplayer unlike any other, was a product of his father's vanity and vision. Now acclaimed author mark kriegel has brilliantly captured the saga of an American family: its rise, its apparent ruin, and, finally, its redemption.
Almost four decades have passed since Maravich entered the national consciousness as basketball's boy wizard. The narrative begins in 1929, the year a missionary gave Pete's father a basketball.

And all these years later, no one else ever has. It also caused him to confuse basketball with salvation.
