Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Prolific author Benson (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly New York Giants) knows the Knicks. Listed alphabetically, each entry here begins with vital data for the player or coach in question, including college attended, jersey numbers, and birth and death information. Following that is a brief biography. Most are at least three paragraphs long, while biographies of prominent players and coaches (e.g., Walt Frazier, Pat Riley, Dave DeBusschere) are up to three pages long. There are other publications that tell the history of the teambetter-as opposed to separate bios-such as Dennis D'Agostino and Walt Frazier's Garden Glory: An Oral History of the New York Knicksor George Kalinsky's The New York Knicks, but this is a comprehensive book only lacking in additional photographs, especially of the earlier players. An essential purchase for libraries collecting the history of this team or of professional basketball generally.
