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.
