Basketball books and basketball goals

Every once in a while you come upon something that makes you say, “Wow. Just wow.”

Bill Simmons is the writer of the “Sports Guy” column for a couple of ESPN products, a blogger, writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live and author of books, now numbering 2.

It was his second book, The Book of Basketball, that made me go, “Wow. Just wow.” It’s sub-title is The NBA According to the Sports Guy. And that pretty much says it.

With a dash – no, a pound – of humor, a passionate (and opinionated) viewpoint on basketball through the years and a big slice of background knowledge, he provides a relevant current and historic picture of basketball and life on the courts.

With a unique structure, one of my favorite parts of the book is Chapter 4 – the What-If Game. I mean he hits the nail right on the head when he starts what-iffing his top 33 what-ifs in NBA history. He’s actually thought each scenario through to “dream out” what difference the decision or event might have made.

There’s no second-guessing with the Basketball Goal Store

You don’t have to what-if like Simmons when you make the decision to surf by the Basketball Goal Store in your search for an in-ground basketball goal system for your house.
