    Brian Grant's autobiography "Rebound" coming out in April 2021

    Full disclosure: I work for the publisher of this book, so if the mods deem this plug to be too shameless, please feel free to delete.

    Brian Grant's book Rebound: Soaring In The NBA, Facing An Incurable Disease, And Finding What Really Matters is set to be released on April 6, 2021, co-authored by Ric Bucher. The book is now available for presale on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Rebound-Soari...dp/1629378119/

    After 12 years of playing basketball at the highest professional level, Brian Grant could have been forgiven for thinking that the hardest part of his life was behind him, that he’d be able to kick back and enjoy the fruits of his considerable labors. But soon after his retirement from the NBA, Grant was diagnosed with Young-Onset Parkinson’s Disease, ushering in a challenge greater than any he'd faced before as well as an opportunity to embrace what really matters in life. In Rebound, Grant shares his remarkable life before, during, and after those NBA years with no shortage of compassion and wit. In conversational, candid prose, he takes readers to Sacramento, Portland, Miami, and beyond; to the airplane 30,000 feet in the air where he first came to understand the source of the tremors in his hand; and to the summit of Mount St. Helens alongside five others with PD where he once again put himself to the test and defied expectations.

    Definitely in my top 5 all-time Muskies. He played during such a great era of college hoops when most stayed all 4 years but that didn't hurt their chances to play at the next level if they had the talent (and B Grant surely did)
