In routine and preparation, Bill Bradley was brought back to his playing days.
The Knicks legend had established a goal of telling his life story as a theatrical performance adapted to film, a 90-minute solo act that Bradley wrote and committed to memory during strolls around Central Park.
Before his live shows, Bradley made sure to regiment his meals, nap and exercise. It was like readying himself for a tipoff at Madison Square Garden. “It was like re-orienting my life to when I was a Knick,” Bradley tells the Daily News. “When the big night came at 7:30.”
Bradley was so nervous during the first rehearsal that his mind went blank.
