After leaving the Bulls at the end of the 1997 1998 seasonthe year featured in the new ESPN documentary series The Last DancePhil Jackson had one year off and started to write this booktogether with his old friend, fellow player and coach, the basketball novelist Charley Rosen. Then Phil took the LA Lakers coaching job, Rosen followed him there, and by the time they finished writing this book it was 2000 and Phil had won yet another NBA championship, the first of five he would win with his new team.

This is Jackson in his prime, transitioning from the Bulls to the Lakers, a master of the art of winning, who would go on to claimNBA championships, eleven,thanany other coach in NBA history. As he writes in MorethanaGameof his newest championship team: We won because our fundamentals were sound, because Shaq was so dominant and Kobe was so creative, but we also won because we developed a certain confidence in our ability to win.
