A great book


I've been reading a great basketball book called "The Art of a Beautiful Game" by Chris Ballard.

For all you basketball junkies here at Clips Nation it is a must read. The author is a writer for Sports Illustrated and provides great insights to the game.

I've read Bill Simmons book and am also reading the Free Darko guys new book, but I find this one the best of the bunch.

This isn't a history of the NBA book , rather it's goes more into the intricacies of the game.

Chapter titles include:

Killer Instinct: Why Kobe Bryant wants to beat you at everything

The Rebound: Dwight Howard and the science of extra Possessions

The Dunk: Why we all wish we could fly

Free Throws: Standing in the lonliest place in the world

Buy it. You won't be disappointed.

I have no interest financial or otherwise in the book. I just think you guys would enjoy the read.
