Wayne Embry is a native of Springfield, Ohio, and was the first African American general manager in professional sports. He graduated from Miami University of Ohio with a B.S. in Education, and a minor in Business Administration. He is a member of the Miami University Hall of Fame and was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1999. Mary Schmitt Boyer is a general assignment sports reporter and feature writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. An award-winning sportswriter who has specialized in covering basketball and the Olympics, she has served as president of the Association for Women in Sports Media and secretary-treasurer of the Pro Basketball Writers Association.. In the fall of 1999, Wayne Embry was so highly thought of by his peers that he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame as a contributor to the game. In the summer of 1999, the Cleveland Cavaliers thought so little of him that they replaced him as general manager. Now in his new autobiography, The Inside Game, Embry, who was once sent home from a game in the old Richfield Coliseum when a bullet was found on his seat, tells the inside story of his fall from grace and the part he believes racism played in it. He deals with the unsavory dealings that led to his departure from the Cavs and introduces startling information about one of the most highly regarded coaches in the league. He discusses the social and economic changes affecting the league and other problems threatening to destroy it. What Embry most wants is to provide inspiration not only to those in the sports world, but to those in the worlds of business and education, where he has demonstrated leadership time and time again. His book is part historical perspective, part inside look behind the scenes, part business strategy and part social commentary, all told in a straightforward style sprinkled with humorous anecdotes. It is a virtual guide for how to develop and maintain successful intra-personal relationships.

Truly great One of the most interesting basketball books I've read. Wayne Embry gives you the story and development of NBA through his eyes and takes you into the locker room and board room.
I love it Excellent book.
... behind the scenes in the front office are the best part of the book Particuarly interesting if you followed the NBA in the 70s and 80s- the stories behind the scenes in the front office are the best part of the book. Embry did seem a little victimized by being let go as General Manager but that's the nature of the beast. He had a very long and storied career. Good book but with an agenda
One of the best basketball autobiographies I have read in a while One of the best basketball autobiographies I have read in a while. Wayne provides a fascinating glimpse of what it was like for a minority working in the front office of an NBA team. Well worth the read.
