Summary
Presents information on the history of basketball and famous players, along with explanations of rules and techniques. Basketball brings together dynamic maneuvers, fast-paced athletic grace, and an especially sleek style for a sporting event loved the world over. The third book in an award-winning series, How Basketball Works combines Keltie Thomas's energetic writing with Greg Hall's witty illustrations to present an exciting look at the science and sport of basketball. Whether readers are fresh on the hoops scene or pounding the hardwood for a pro career, How Basketball Works has something to offer. The book looks at a wide variety of topics, including what makes a basketball the shooting, passing, and slam-dunking tool that it is; the parts of the court, floor, basket, and backboard - and how each affects a player's game; how to suit up for success in a uniform with attitude; refining skills like jump shots, passing, blocking shots, and more; going beyond the skills to develop mind and body for b-ball battle; tall tales - how height became a dominating force on the court; and much more. The book also includes photos of pro basketball players past and present, along with "Quick Hit" factoids and fun "Try This" activities to help in skill development
