Hang Time Podcast (Episode 150) Featuring Bestselling Author Jeff Pearlman « NBA.com | Hang Time Blog
Just because you were a great player in you era doesn't mean your talent transcends the times. Some guys were great during their era, but for a number of different reasons, they might not have attained the same status in another era. Just because you score a career-high and franchise-record 61 points against the Charlotte Bobcats, as LeBron James did Monday night, doesn't mean Hall of Famers like Dominique Wilkins are going to be impressed. We debate all that and more this week on Episode 150 of the Hang Time Podcast featuring The New York Times bestselling author and fellow hoops head Jeff Pearlman, whose definitive work on the "Showtime Lakers" is available now and absolute must-read. The story of the origins, Hollywood roller coaster that Dr. Jerry Buss, Magic Johnson, Pat Riley, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the rest of the Showtime Lakers took us on was one of a kind. The back story on how the dynasty was built and maintained is one that you won't want to miss.
