FreeDarko Presents the Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac by Bethlehem Shoals
Book DescriptionUnlike regimented football or stats-happy baseball, The National Basketball Association is above all else a league of "characters." Over the course of a season, games are, of course, won or lost, but for millions of devoted fans, the final result is almost incidental to the way the league's best players perform on - and off - the court. This book is the indispensible companion to today's game - a roundball Rosetta Stone that hilariously decodes the trends and tendencies of this enormously popular game. The NBA of the moment is a league of hugely charismatic celebrities, crackling aesthetic intrigue, socio-political undercurrents, and raw humanity: every Kobe Bryant pump-fake or LeBron James dunk symbolizes the changing landscape of professional sports and holds within it a Shaq-sized load of meaning. Fans who know the sport recognize how much more there is to basketball than, well, basketball. "The Macro-Phenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac "is a brilliantly illustrated guide to this tumultuous and exciting landscape. It explains what each player--from Tim Duncan and Gilbert Arenas to Amare Stoudemire and Lamar Odom--reveals, through their play and conduct, about who they are and, more importantly, who the fans want them to be. Like the game it celebrates, "The Macro-Phenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac" is simultaneously authentic and cerebral, funny and accessible, wholly original, and always entertaining.
