Estimated Release Date Nov 2020

A young black boy, legally blind in one eye, from a hard-working family in the poorest section of Washington, D.C., leaps to the pinnacle of his sport: the NBA Hall of Fame. A rookie bank teller rises to become one of the nation's most celebrated black business leaders. A once-reluctant political neophyte answers the call to become mayor of America's most troubled city, and he establishes a mentoring program for African-American boys that serves as a model for the nation. All of these stories belong to Dave Bing. In Attacking the Rim, Bing shares this multifaceted personal saga with rare combination of modesty, moxie and powerful self-belief. Reflecting on his playing days with the Detroit Pistons, Washington Bullets, and Boston Celtics, Bing takes readers inside the exciting world of pro basketball at the moment when sensational athletes were turning a low-budget game into a high-powered, multi-million dollar entertainment spectacle. From inside the Detroit mayor's office, he offers a first-hand look at the city's plight, including intractable debt and corruption, massive unemployment, woeful city services and infrastructure, and the daily choices between the lesser of evils.
