Pistol Pete

Pete Maravich always makes me think of my brother. He had a borderline obsession with him back in his basketball playing years. Well this week I've been thinking about my brother a lot. A new book about Maravich came out this week, I've yet to read it but it's on my list. Get it here.
I also received the new Eastbay catalog this week and lo and behold Adidas is continuing its tribute to Pistol Pete with these great new shoes. You may remember that they came out with a Pistol Pete model last year that were pretty nice but nothing like these. I really like those hitops. Eastbay has the new shoes plus some of last years line, get them here.

Kingdom,

Thanks for the info. I am way ahead of you. I already read Pistol (bought an advance copy on ebay) and the other new Pete Maravich book called, MARAVICH. I know know more about Pistol Pete than I ever thought possible. That guy was amazing.

Both books are really great but MARAVICH (Federman/Terrill) has way more information. Have you read it yet? It's not even close.

My favorite place to watch the Pistol:
