Overview

In the early 1980s, the National Basketball Association entered into an era of prominence that rivaled any in sports history. While the league had its share of stars, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Dr. J, it was the arrival of two fresh-faced, talented kids - Larry Bird and Earvin "Magic" Johnson - that infused new energy into the NBA at the beginning of the decade, sending the game into an upwards spiral that has made basketball the most exciting game in the world. The arrival of Bird and Johnson launched one of the greatest eras in the history of the sport, one that continues to this day. The game's popularity exploded, and its stars became household names throughout the world. Magic, Kareem, Larry, Dr. J and Michael became superstars, their images gracing the pages of magazines and the walls of adoring children. The game has everything: dynamic personalities, dramatic rivalries and the best athletes in the world. And its success is assured for years to come thanks to a new crop of superstars that includes Shaquille O'Neal, Grant Hill, Anfernee Hardaway and Chris Webber. NBA Hoop Shots captures this unprecedented era through the camera lens of NBA Senior Photographer Andrew D. Bernstein. From the efficiency of Kareem's skyhook, the precision of a Bird jumper and the jaw-dropping acrobatics of a Jordan slam, Bernstein's work will dazzle both the hard-core and casual fan with magical images of the game's greatest players. With a foreword by NBA Commissioner David Stern and an introduction by Magic Johnson, NBA Hoop Shots will take you to places of which you have only dreamed.
