Summary

Chicago Bulls legend Bob Love was a great basketball player, but his story goes well beyond the court. It's story about the rise and fall of a man who became a dishwasher after an injury cut short his playing career. It's a story about a man pulling himself out of obscurity and getting back into the game as director of community relations for the Bulls. Love also tells how he conquered his stuttering problem and now gives motivational speeches to more than a quarter-million teenagers and adults every year. His story is not only inspiring to young athletes, but to any person who is facing adversity.
