How Basketball WorksBook - 2005
Whether readers are fresh on the hoops scene or pounding the hardwood for a pro career, How Basketball Works, part of the How Sports Work series, will inspire anyone's game. Text that is as exciting to read as the sport is to play looks at what makes a basketball the shooting, passing, and slam dunking tool that it is; the parts of the court and how each affects a player's game; the science behind refining your skills; and how height became a dominating force on the court. How Basketball Works brings together dynamic maneuvers, fast-paced athletic grace, and an especially sleek style for a comprehensive look at a sporting event loved the world over.
