Forever's Team: Duke fans, get ready

by Carino on Apr 7, 2007

Forever?s Team follows the Duke basketball team of 1978 and their coach, Bill Foster. With a chapter on each team member as well as the head and assistant coaches, author John Feinstein delves into not only the basketball, but also the deeper connection between the team members. The Blue Devils are tracked from the beginning of the season to the championship game. Though Duke lost, they had the time of their lives. They were a team playing basketball to?get this?have fun. The team, led by a freshman point guard, only wanted one thing: to win. Whoever got the job done needed to be in, even if it wasn?t the upperclassmen. The 1978 Duke team was a team of dreams. They were not torn by jealousy. They just wanted to play some ball. In 1979, Duke was expected to come back and win the NCAA Championship. Then, everything went wrong. Seniors were sick of sitting out while the underclassmen did all the work, and began demanding more time to play. Jealousies were apparent, and began to tear the team apart. Gone were the days of innocent basketball. These men?s lives had caught up with them. Needless to say, Duke did not win, and soon thereafter, Bill Foster decided to leave. John Feinstein writes an amazing story of the memorable Duke team of 1978, and takes you back to the good ol? days.
