Jack McCallum

Jack McCallum was a writer at Sports Illustrated for three decades, specializing in basketball coverage, and is still a Special Contributor. He lists his greatest achievements as winning the Basketball Hall of Fame's Curt Gowdy Award in 2005 and having the same telephone number for over 40 years. Some of his basketball books—including the New York Times best-seller Dream Team, Seven Seconds or Less, and Unfinished Business—are still in print and make great holiday gifts.
