Kentucky Colonels of the American Basketball Association: The Real Story of a Team Left Behind gives an inside look at one of the most intriguing times in the history of professional basketball; and the city of Louisville and the state of Kentucky were enjoying every bit of it.And then as quickly as the Colonels appeared, they were gone. They had been around just long enough to win a world championship and showcase not only some of the best basketball players in the history of the game, but also some of its most colorful characters.Perhaps this book should have been written years ago, but there always seemed to be plenty of time. And then one day, a generation or two removed, someone asked what happened to that pro-basketball team back in the 60s and 70s? BAM, it hits you. This book had to be written.Here are never-before-told stories that only Lloyd “Pink” Gardner would know. He lived it and Gary P. West wrote it.“There is no doubt in my mind that the Artis Gilmore, Dan Issel led 1975 ABA Champion Kentucky Colonels would have been heavy favorites to beat the Rick Barry, Jamaal Wilkes led Golden State Warriors in a Unification Title Series. I would have watched and cheered out loud for the ABA.” Julius “Dr. J” Erving “The Kentucky Colonels franchise was among the best in professional basketball. They always had competitive teams with exceptionally talented players. Because of the large crowds, I always looked forward to playing in Freedom Hall.” Rick Barry “An affectionate and authentic look at the late, great ABA from someone who truly lived it.” Bob Costas Broadcaster – NBC Sports and Major League Baseball Network “Lloyd Gardner was a major part of the success of the Kentucky Colonels. Anyone who knows anything about the Kentucky Colonels and their history will tell you that. Lloyd had the perfect temperament to be a trainer, and the knowledge to get the players back after certain injuries, and the key thing of loyalty... to the players and the coaches.” Hubie Brown Interview with Drew Deener on WKRD Radio
