Best. Sports. Book. Ever,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Book of Basketball: The NBA According to the Sports Guy (Paperback)
Basketball nut Simmons basically packs every bar room argument, every eternal who-was-better debate and creates the most definitive all-time best player list all to a soundtrack of wisecracks, pop-culture references, mind-blowing detail, backed by the sports smarts of a man who has mined every ounce of material to back his theories up.
For someone who followed the NBA from afar, it was like a crash course in the sport from its inception and what it meant culturally to the US. I literally devoured it.
800+ pages, and yet soon as I'd finished, i started reading it again.
