Publisher's Summary

This book is made up of 33 chapters. Each chapter is a different basketball question that needs to be answered. Some of them are obviously crucial (example: what's the most important NBA championship?) and some of them are secretly crucial (example: was Kobe Bryant a dork?).
But all of them are approached in ways that (I hope you think) are smart and fun and nuanced. Also, you should know ahead of time that some of the pieces go a bit sideways sometimes, like the chapter that ends up just being the script of an action movie, or the other chapter that's actually just a bunch of lists and nothing else. Basketball is fun. - Shea

Terrible Narration, Good Book

It’s as if they don’t proofread these narrations. Dude called Dan Majerle “Dan Majorly!” He called Christian Laettner “Christian Lott-ner” and kept referring to Bryon Russell as “Byron Russell.” These are glaring and annoying mistakes in an otherwise good basketball book.

Very enjoyable book to listen to

The content was great. I liked the style in which it was written, I found myself talking back to it a couple times. Very engaging, entertaining, and the questions asked were fun. My only complaint (if you could call it that) is that the narrator mispronounced the names of a handful of players names. There were a couple times I had to back it up and figure out who he was talking about (Suns F Dan “Majorly”). That said, there were many more instances the narrator totally nailed the tone and tenor of different bits the author was portraying.

Aside from that, and it’s just a pet peeve, I very much recommend this book.
