Jeff Pearlman is a New York Times best selling author.
Jeff joined Ed & Steve to talk about his new book “Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty Of The 1980’s.”
Jeff is from the same city as Ray Rice and Jeff started by talking about how the city is crushed and how they wear more Rice Raven’s jerseys then they wear Jets and Giants jerseys. Jeff called it an absolute heartbreak for the city.
Jeff then went on to share some amazing stories on the Lakers championship teams of the 80’s, focusing mostly on Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul Jabar.
