Overview

Continuing Sports Illustrated's tradition of producing best-selling coffee-table books for the holiday season, SI presents The Basketball Book, a lavish celebration of the athleticism and pageantry of both the college and the professional game. With the same kind of unforgettable photographs and award-winning writing that propelled The Baseball Book, The Football Book, and The Anniversary Book to the New York Times best-seller list over the past three years, this volume brings to life the legendary players, the classic action and the great rivalries of the court. In 294 oversized pages, The Basketball Book commemorates the epic teams and characters, the personalities and performances and artifacts that have created legions of passionate fans since Dr. James Naismith nailed up a peach basket and devised the Original 13 Rules of the game more than 100 years ago.

Very informative. However, I myself do not support the NBA. I enjoy college basketball more than any other sport.
