Publisher's Summary

Larry Miller is the tough-as-nails, fun-loving, working-class bad boy who in the 1960s saved young North Carolina coach Dean Smith's job by winning his first two ACC titles and a trip to the National Championship game. A two-time All-American, Miller is still the only Tar Heel ever named ACC Player of the Year twice. He was also the first heartthrob of the modern ACC before moving on to become "the Joe Namath of the ABA", setting the pro league's all-time single-game scoring record. And then he simply disappeared.

Now, for the first time, North Carolina's foundational player shares priceless stories from the locker rooms, road trips, parties, and fights of the teams that established Dean Smith's Tar Heel legacy...and from the raffish early days of modern pro basketball.

Larry Keith of Sports Illustrated calls Larry Miller Time "the great untold story of Carolina basketball...a fascinating tale with an unexpected ending". "Coach Roy Williams says, "Larry Miller was one of those mythical figures to me...he was one of my heroes". Charles Scott claims, "Larry was the winner who made Coach Smith a winner. Like Bill Russell started the Boston Celtics tradition, Larry Miller is the tradition that Carolina talks about. Everything starts with him."

Featuring original interviews with teammates Billy Cunningham, Charles Scott, Big-10 Commissioner Jim Delany, Coach Williams, and many others, Larry Miller Time is a candid, immersive narrative for every follower of UNC and classic basketball lore and a Brigadoon of America's good old days.

amazing listen!

Fascinating book about a legend I knew little about. I wish this narrator could do all the books I listen to, he really brought this book to life. Great job all the way around. A must read for hoops fans
