Read the book, 3 October 1999
Author: pjcons from Perth, West Australia

I read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I struggled through the movie.

Did anyone else think that Rodman's mum had more than a passing resemblance to Steve Erkel? That dorky guy in that American comedy a few years ago???

The worst part was that the movie didn't even portray Rodman correctly. I know he doesn't do a spin move with such grace now, so why should he have been doing them back in College???

And to think I was going to get out Hoosiers and watch it again... :(
