The Book of Basketball: The NBA According to the Sports Guy
There is only one writer on the planet who possesses enough basketball knowledge and passion to write the definitive book on the NBA.
Bill Simmons, the from-the-womb hoops addict known to millions as ESPN.com’s Sports Guy, is that writer.
From the age-old question of who actually won the rivalry between Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain to the one about which team was truly the best of all time, Simmons opens - and then closes, once and for all - every major pro basketball debate.
Then he takes it further by completely re-evaluating not only how NBA Hall of Fame inductees should be chosen but also how the institution must urgently be reshaped from the ground up.
Ultimately he takes fans to the heart of it all, as he uses a conversation with one NBA great to uncover all the mystique surrounding the sport.
