NBA 75: The Definitive History

Celebrate the NBA with stories that capture the association’s larger-than-life players and jaw-dropping events. The world’s greatest basketball league, all 75 years, is chronicled in this beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully written volume. This collection covers the biggest moments and greatest superstars, with over 75 stories ranging from Jerry West’s 33-win streak Lakers, through Jordan’s repeat three-peat Bulls, to Steph Curry and the 73-win Warriors and beyond. This retrospective doesn’t shy away from controversy, covering the league’s struggles with racial bigotry, Magic Johnson’s HIV diagnosis, Len Bias’s tragic draft-night death, and the cocaine-fuelled late seventies when the Finals were broadcast tape-delayed.

Each compelling story is illustrated with over 150 archival images that cover the best dunks, shots, dribble drives, and cross-overs since the league’s tip-off. Wilt, Russell, Bird, Kareem, Kobe, Lebron, KD, and MJ — they’re all here. From the association’s early barnstorming days to the multibillion sports industry it is today, NBA 75 is the definitive guide to the history of the NBA — perfect to learn more about the game you love or catch up on what you’ve been missing.
