About

Jack McCallum was a senior writer at Sports Illustrated for thirty years and is still a Special Contributor to the magazine. Over his career, McCallum covered a wide array of sports, everything from pro football to bowling to squash, and also edited the Scorecard section of the magazine where he invented the popular “This Week’s Sign of the Apocalypse.” But he is best known for his coverage of the National Basketball Association.

He is the author of thirteen books, including four critically-acclaimed works about the NBA: Unfinished Business (about the 1990-91 season spent with the Boston Celtics), Seven Seconds Or Less (about the 2006-07 season spent with the Phoenix Suns); the New York Times best-seller Dream Team; and Golden Days (about the connections between the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers and the 2016-17 Golden State Warriors).

McCallum has won several journalism awards, including one from the Women’s Sports Foundation for feature writing, and in 2005 he was the recipient of the Curt Gowdy Award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. McCallum was also elected to the United States Basketball Writers Hall of Fame. McCallum, whose work has been selected for Best American Sports Writing, is the husband of one, the father of two and the grandfather of four.
