Who's Better, Who's Best in Basketball? by Elliot Kalb
Book Description'Whatever the issue or debate in sports, 'Mr. Stats' has more than just the facts' - Bob Costas. 'For NBA fans, there is no one better at what he does than Elliott Kalb - he's simply the best' - Bill Walton. Should Michael Jordan really be ranked number 1? Is Dennis Rodman a Hall of Famer? Who's better - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or Wilt Chamberlain? Who was the best point guard in NBA history: Cousy? Stockton? Kidd? How good was Julius Erving in the ABA? These are only a few of the questions that have launched a thousand heated debates among NBA fans - and you can find the answers here, from the one and only "Mr. Stats."'No one is more qualified, more of an NBA historian, more opinionated than I am,' writes Elliott Kalb in this tremendously satisfying book - and he's right. Known to TV viewers as "Mr. Stats," Kalb is the ultimate authority in armchair athletes' disputes. Here, he gathers together the informed opinions of coaches, players, broadcasters, and super-fans, interweaving numbers, facts, and anecdotes to flesh out the central question in basketball: Who's the best? Along the way, Kalb revises the list of the fifty greatest players in NBA history, presents eye-opening essays on all-time greats, and puts today's stars in context with the legends. This ultimate behind-the-numbers story will provide powerful ammunition for your next debate - and who knows, in the end, Mr. Stats may even convince you that Jordan really isn't number 1.
