    Pistol is more than the biography of a ballplayer. It's the stuff of classic novels: the story of a boy transformed by his father's dream -- and the cost of that dream. Even as Pete Maravich became Pistol Pete -- a basketball icon for baby boomers -- all the Maraviches paid a price.

    After Pete was booked on the show, Dr. Dobson invited Pete to join a group of guys to play a friendly pick-up game of basketball. None of us dreamed that would be the last day Pete would be on a basketball court.

Dr.   Maravich fouled out late on two charges that Kriegel’s book says were clearly bad calls. “He made the goal on that last one, and a free throw would have given him 71 with left,” Remy says.
