#1 New York Times bestseller
Who is the greatest dunker of all time? Which version of the Michael Jordan was the best Michael Jordan? What is allowed and absolutely not allowed in a game of pickup basketball? Basketball (and Other Things) presents readers with a whole new set of pivotal and ridiculous fan disputes from basketball history, providing arguments and answers, explained with the wit and wisdom that is unique to Shea Serrano. Serrano breaks down debates that NBA fans didn’t even know they needed, from the classic (How many years during his career was Kobe Bryant actually the best player in the league?) to the fantastical (If you could assign different values to different shots throughout basketball history, what would they be and why?). With incredible art from Arturo Torres, this book is a must-have for anyone who has ever stayed up late into the night debating basketball’s greatest moments, what-ifs, stories, and legends, or for those who are discovering the mythology of basketball for the first time.
Art and Ball
The art in the book is worth buying it. Shea raises some fun questions in each chapter. Interesting topics for most basketball fans. Downside for me was being a die hard fan I knew most of the hard info in the book already. Also given the style of the writing it screamed for video clips being included or at least links to highlights. FOH
Overall. Very good book. Unique perspective. Great artwork. Excellent gift.
Bound by honor
This is the story of three Mexicans cousins who grow up in los angles during the late 70’s. All three start out in a local gang but go on three different paths from there.
Buy the print book
This is a great book that everyone should read. Too bad the e-pub version is such a pale imitation of the real book. Not even all the text is in the right place.
