Read full description of the books:



This is exactly the type of book that I really enjoy. It's about the history of the early NBA (from it's inception until the retirement of Bill Russell in 1970) done in an oral history style. This is a companion to Pluto's Loose Balls about the history of the ABA. This book was great but the one thing that was obviously missing was Russell. I don't know why he didn't participate but it was pretty glaring, as he was one of the most important elements of this time period. Pluto had quotes from most of the other great players of that era, but missing Russell was pretty major. Despite that there ware some amazing stories in the book. It's quite the comparison to the NBA of today, although that was a but of a let down, having all the superstars of that era bad mouthing today's NBA. It is definitely different but that doesn't make it worse. It was a bit disheartening to hear them all give the old line "back in my day..." Despite these couple of knocks this was still an amazing book and I loved learning about a lot of the stars that made the early NBA great.
