The level of competition and skill is at an all-time high, with each game playing host to a series of highlight-reel dunks. From the cornfields of Indiana, the bluegrass of Kentucky, to the urban sprawl of New York City and L.A., love of the game stretches from coast to coast.

Featuring Top Ten Lists to chew on and debate, and a Top 40-style Timeline of Key Moments, this comprehensive collection includes insights into the greatest dynasties, from the Bill Russell-era Celtics to the Michael Jordan-led Bulls, along with all-time all-stars such as Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, and LeBron James. And of course, it's all about reaching the finals-Howard Bryant delivers a blow-by-blow of the most unforgettable, action-packed NBA Finals matchups. Here is the perfect book for young fans who dream about stepping on an NBA court.
