Summary, etc.:
"A 75-year history of the National Basketball Association."-- Provided by publisher.
Celebrate the NBA with stories that capture the association's larger-than-life players and jaw-dropping events. From 1946 to 2020, there are stories and archival images that cover the best dunks, shots, dribble drives, and cross-overs. And the retrospective doesn't shy away from controversy, covering the league's struggles with racial bigotry, Magic Johnson's HIV diagnosis, and the cocaine-fueled late seventies when the Finals were broadcast tape-delayed. A definitive guide to the history of the NBA. -- adapted from back cover
