Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
The National Basketball Association (NBA) has a rich tradition spiced by amazing individual and team performances. Many of the great players, coaches, and franchises have accomplished some things that are truly record breaking. In this encyclopedic look at NBA records writer Tyler Omoth provides readers with a handy guidebook to NBA records established through the 2011 season. While some records may have fallen or changed in the past three seasons, this compilation serves well as a starting point for basketball fans interested in knowing what players or teams hold some of the most impressive records in NBA history. For example do you know who holds the record for most points in a playoff game or what team had the most victories in a single season? The answers to those two questions are Michael Jordan with sixty-three points against the Boston Celtics in 1986 and the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls who had a record of 72-10. These facts, and many more, are all included in this colorful book. Also included are some short thumbnail sketches or stories about the players, coaches, and teams that ended up making records for better or worse. Basketball fans with an eye for statistics will enjoy perusing the pages of this book. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck; Ages 10 to 14.
