I loved this book because I enjoy reading about the early years of the NBA and all of the great players who contributed to that beginning. Living in Marion, IN at the time and at 13 years of age I was excited about the NBA getting started and was able to attend many games. Not many people will recall that Indiana had three teams in the NBA at one time. They were the Anderson Packers, the Indianapolis Olympians and the Ft. Wayne Zollner Pistons. There are great stories behind all of these teams that basketball fans should be interested in finding out about. I had two favorite players in those early years. Frankie Brian, an All-American out of LSU played for the Packers and the Pistons and Paul Arizin out of Villanova were great players. I got to talk to Frankie not long ago and he is in his 80s and shoots free throws every day. Arizin lead the NBA in scoring a few times and he and I met while I was in high school. He sent me a signed players card and a nice note reminding me that he remembered our meeting. All in all, this book was quite nostalgic for me because I remember seeing games where players mentioned in the book played. Of course TV played a big part in exposing the NBA and I saw many games that way as the league developed. Names like George Mikan, Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain will go down in history as those who made the NBA what it is today. Thanks to the author for bringing back many great memories.
