Earlier today we ran an excerpt from the great Roland Lazenby’s latest book, Showboat: The Life of Kobe Bryant. The book is fantastic (I am not yet finished, but what I have read is tremendous) and you can get yourself a copy right here through Amazon.
However, we have a special surprise for a couple of our readers — we are also doing a giveaway!
We have two copies to give out, so two of you will get a copy shipped to you. Our contest is straightforward enough:
- In the comments below, give your favorite Kobe story, anecdote, or comment about what his career meant to you.
- The two commenters with the most “likes” on their respective comment will win a copy. (Via livefyre, you have the ability to “like” someone’s comment — you will see the option for this underneath the comment and to the right. If you do not have a livefyre account, you will need to create one but that is free.)
It is really that simple. I will tally the “likes” on Sunday, November 6th. If you won, I will contact you to get your mailing address and then ship you your copy. The only disclaimer is that there is only one entry per commenter.
So, get to it and good luck!
