Read full description of the books:
Basketball in its early years was rough and rowdy, on the courts and off. Players had names like Feets Broudy, Sweetwater Clifton, and Easy Ed Macauley. There was no twenty-four-second clock, no jump shot, and only one referee, and fouls were called only for real injury. But from the very start the game won fans. From Set Shot to Slam Dunk brings back the glory days of basketball as lived by fifteen old-time players and officials.
