Présentation de l'éditeur
Throughout the pages of Heart Over Height, Robinson takes fans behind-the-scenes of his childhood, his career and his most famous moments. From outperforming LeBron James on one of the NBA’s biggest stages, to mapping out his iconic slam dunk contest win over Dwight Howard, to being named Washington’s high school football and basketball player of the year, Heart Over Height brings to life a story that personifies perseverance.
Beginning with his improbable selection as the New York Knicks’ first-round draft pick after only playing basketball full time for two years, and continuing on to his unprecedented three NBA Slam Dunk Championships, Robinson has defied the odds every step of his career; a career that many analysts and pundits felt would never happen because in a sport filled with seven-footers, Robinson stands only 5’9” tall.
Having just completed his 9th electrifying year in the NBA, Robinson has proven all doubters wrong. Heart Over Height tells the story of the people, places, teams and fans that helped make his rise to stardom possible.
