The gritty and sometimes funny, yet poignant details of Mike James’ struggle to overcome adversity in pursuit of his dream to play in the NBA is a must read for anyone with thoughts of being the best they can be. Mike details the hard work, determination and constant struggle to make it in a business that many desire but only few succeed. The dedicated, yet often misunderstood star point guard recounts the reality of being traded nine times in an 8-year career and the toll it has taken on his family as well as his psyche. He takes his readers on an emotional rollercoaster, which leaves them cheering for the underdog. Although Mike has tasted success as a member of the 2004 Detroit Piston’s NBA championship team, he still continues his quest for greatness in the ongoing Fight for His Dreams.
