What were the unreported factors behind Michael Jordan's retirement from the NBA in 1993? Did he ever truly have a shot at making a major league roster? Why did he return to basketball eighteen months later, and how did his teammates feel about it? Which Bulls players want to continue playing with "His Airness", and which want out? Who among the NBA's cast of hard-nosed coaches, blue-chip rookies, trash-talking superstars, and buttoned-down league officials really wields the most power? In Second Coming, Sam Smith, author of the phenomenal bestseller The Jordan Rules, delivers answers to these questions and more. By turns startling, humorous, and provocative, this "story-behind-the-comeback story" evokes the true nature of life under the NBA big top with the Chicago Bulls in the center ring and Michael Jordan as ringmaster.
