Summary
"This inimitable collective returns with a bigger scope, deeper research, and renewed passion as [FreeDarko] takes on the whole of pro basketball history. Here we'll see the full evolution of the league: from the Celtics of Red Auerbach (compared by FreeDarko to the filmmaker John Cassavetes) clear through to the years of Frazier, Jordan, Iverson, and LeBron and Kobe. Of course, it's more than simply a history. In these pages we'll also see a taxonomy of every fight in NBA history, the relationship between Wilt Chamberlain's scoring and the atom bomb, and a feature known as the Mustache Index."--Amazon.com
