4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book but prefer the book: NBA’s 50 Greatest Basketball Players of All-Time
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 28, 2018
Good book but with a heck of a lot less stastical reference than the frequently bought : 2013-14 book NBA's 50 Greatest Basketball Players of All-time which is the most informative "factual and statistical" references put together on the market.

The book NBA’s 50 Greatest Basketball Player of All-Time also has a handy “chart” in the back of the book with hundreds of entries for a Players total: MVP awards, Finals MVP awards, Defensive Player of the Year awards, All-NBA First Team and Second Team selection, All-Defensive First Team and Second Team selections, Scoring titles Rebouding titles, Assists titles won, etc.
