Game: An Autobiography

Hill eloquently narrates his own story that spans from his youth basketball days in the 1980s to the present day as an NBA team executive. He chronicles winning the 1991 and 1992 NCAA National Championships as a Duke Blue Devil, playing on the 1996 U.S. Olympic team, and his 19 years in the NBA (1994–2013) with four teams (Pistons, Magic, Suns, and Clippers). His account of his complex and lengthy ankle injury, including the multiple surgeries, sepsis, and extended recovery times, is exceptionally retold. Since retiring from the NBA, Hill continues his involvement in basketball as a co-owner of the Atlanta Hawks as well as a basketball analyst, most notable for his colorful commentary during the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Information on his work as an analyst could have been improved with insider details. Recaps of games are approached with the notion that listeners understand basketball and its terminology.
VERDICT For basketball fans and those who bleed Duke blue, but Hill’s autobiography is also a worthy addition to any library’s sports collection as Hill, once a role model on the court, is one off it as well.
