The Britannica Guide to Basketball

$27.83

Despite its American origins, the fast-paced and often acrobatic game of basketball commands the attention of audiences around the world. The sport's seeming simplicity -- put the ball in the basket -- is delightfully offset by the complexity of the athleticism and strategy required to be successful at the game. Recounting the evolution of basketball and profiling greats from George Mikan to Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, and beyond, this gripping volume examines the story of a game that continues to dazzle American and global audiences alike.
