San Antonio Spurs George Gervin, 1976 ABA Slam Dunk Contest SetNumber: X20203

Yesterday, George Gervin’s memoir Ice: Why I Was Born To Score came out through Triumph Books. The autobiography was written in collaboration with writer Scoop Jackson (ESPN, Sportscenter, Nike’s EQUALITY campaign) with a foreword by Kevin Durant.

The book recounts Gervin’s career from his childhood in Detroit through to his jersey being raised into the rafters by the San Antonio Spurs. His agility and poise on the court made him one of the more memorable players of his generation and a stand-out member of the Silver & Black.

Upon his retirement, Ice took his larger than life personae into the community starting schools. His legacy has been cemented in the city he has called home for 50 years.

An on-line review states: “Gervin also reflects on family, mental health, spirituality, and his continuing bond with the San Antonio community in this candid and conversational book.”
