Staff Reviews


Shea Serrano is apparently setting up a cottage industry of producing books that speak to 25-35 year olds everywhere. His first book, The Rap Yearbook, was a loving look back on the history of hip-hop. His newest title, Basketball (and other things) is even better.
Presented in a fully illustrated, oversized format, Basketball (and other things) might just be THE perfect basketball book. Each chapter tackles a hypothetical question, that Serrano then sets out to answer. Which Jordan is the BEST Jordan? Which player is remembered for the wrong thing? And perhaps, most importantly, was Kobe Bryant a dork? — Chris Linendoll

Description


This book is made up of thirty-three chapters. Each chapter is a different basketball question that needs to be answered. Some of them are obviously crucial (Example: What's the Most Important NBA Championship?) and some of them are secretly crucial (Example: Was Kobe Bryant a Dork?). But all of them are approached in ways that (I hope you think) are smart and fun and nuanced. Also, you should know ahead of time that some of the pieces go a bit sideways sometimes, like the chapter that ends up just being the script of an action movie, or the other chapter that's actually just a bunch of lists and nothing else. Basketball is fun. -Shea.
