Publisher's Summary

This book is made up of 33 chapters. Each chapter is a different basketball question that needs to be answered. Some of them are obviously crucial (example: what's the most important NBA championship?) and some of them are secretly crucial (example: was Kobe Bryant a dork?).

But all of them are approached in ways that (I hope you think) are smart and fun and nuanced. Also, you should know ahead of time that some of the pieces go a bit sideways sometimes, like the chapter that ends up just being the script of an action movie, or the other chapter that's actually just a bunch of lists and nothing else. Basketball is fun. - Shea

Meh

For me, this book was an incredible waste of time. There will be no new information about the NBA for most who are already fans. The author seemed like the type of fan who goes completely nuts in celebration after someone gets crossed over, even if the guy misses the jumper immediately after.

For lovers of basketball (and other things)

An amazing book for anyone who truly loves basketball and the NBA. Serrano covers so much of what fans have discussed and argued about for decades and in a way that is more entertaining than just about any other book I have ever come across. Also, Sean Crisden’s performance is the best I have ever heard on an audio book. His tone and delivery makes this a must listen. Love this audiobook!
