The Pro Basketball Prospectus is a must have reference guide for any serious basketball fan. It's jammed full of useful facts and stats as well as insightful commentary on each team.

Using the information in this guide in combination with the score prediction models presented in  will open your eyes to an entirely new way of looking at what is happening on the basketball court.

2012-2013 Prospectus is a big step up from 2011-2012 and contains even more in depth info that will be of interest to big NBA fans (and especially fantasy players). I keep the book around for reference while watching games to get a recap on teams and stats. Awesome book, this will likely be a recurring investment each season for me.

This book was a gift to my son who is a big basketball and stats fan. He is really enjoying it.

Gets no better than this. Every year these guys put together a book detailing where every NBA team stands, how they performed the prior year and what their chances are in the upcoming season. Each team has a 3 or 4 page essay while every single PLAYER even has a short essay covering his abilities and whatever individual narrative there may be.

It's a thoroughly objective and stats-oriented approach but the numbers don't ever get in the way of the prose. It's well-written material that only references arcane stats when necessary, and usually in a fashion that makes the picture understandable.

It's incredible to me that this all written by two guys. Every single team, every single player, covered in detail. The annual bible for the intelligent NBA fan.

(And for those who are familiar with BASEBALL Prospectus, the book is in a similar format but the writing isn't nearly as snarky and satirical as the Baseball guys tend to get. They also tend to be a bit less reliant on the stats to tell the story.)

Its a shame that the authors discontinued this book after 2012-2013. This book has great information about every player in the league. I love this book.

The authors have been hired fulltime by ESPN, so there won't be another one of these. Anyone know of anything out there that might fill this void?
