Summary
"Thirty-three chapters, each chapter a different basketball question that needs to be answered. Some of them are obviously crucial ... and some of them are secretly crucial. But all of them are approached in ways that ([the author] hope[s] you think) are smart and fun and nuanced"--Back cover
Summary
Shares lighthearted coverage of a wide range of fan debates about basketball history, from Kobe Bryant's actual league dominance to what rules are not permitted in pickup games
