King Kelly Coleman

In a state where the love of basketball itself is legendary, there are its rare heroes who also, through the dispassionate lens of history, rise to legendary status. When that legend rises so far above the others as to acquire mythical, or rather, folk hero proportions and then enigmatically vanishes you have King Kelly Coleman. This shy, humble mountain boy blessed with extraordinary talent and drive captured Kentucky's hearts and its all-time record books with performances that have yet to be equaled even a half a century later. Never before in print, the authorized King Kelly Coleman story is told by award-winning author Gary P. West, from actual interviews and information from Coleman himself.
