NBA's GreatestBook - 2003
Imagine being one of only 4.12 fans to witness the unthinkable on a cold night in March as Wilt Chamberlain scores 100 points in a single game versus the New York Knicks in Hershey. Pennsylvania? Or sitting courtside at the fabled Boston Garden as John Havlicck swoops out of nowhere to tip a Hal Greer inbounds pass away from Chet Walker and toward teammate Sam Jones, who dribbled out the clock as fans poured onto the court? The greatness of Oscar Robertson, who not only averaged a triple-double for an entire season but actually averaged one during the first five seasons of his career? What about the scoring brilliance of Kobe Bryant as he shot an NBA single-game record 12 three-pointers, including an incredible nine in a row? Or the unparalleled excellence of the Boston Celties winning 11 championships in 13 seasons? Great players. Great teams. Great games. Great moments. Since the NBA debuted more than 50 years ago, thousands of players have logged at least one minute of NBA action yet only a sclect few have left an indelible mark on the game. NBA's Greatest profiles these players plus the greatest teams and coaches in NBA history as well as reliving the greatest moments and games. Book jacket.
