This all-in-one revised edition book of basketball is a great statistical and factual reference with outstanding player descriptions, analysis and skill sets (In the "Kindle edition" the on-line preview for the chapter title's do not appear aligned until compressed and viewed on your Kindle device). Also included is a handy one-page chart (over 450 entries) of the greatest players of all-time individual scoring, rebounding, assist, steals and block titles, key second place finishes, and awards and honors!To begin (If you are a big-time basketball fan and like objective-facts and numbers, this resource is like a mini encyclopedia in the palm of your hands) After you read the description, and the first few pages on Amazon's preview (Look Inside!), make sure to click Surprise me! - to get a true glimpse of what this book is all about - better yet, click on Search Inside this book and punch in your favorite player! And that includes you too, Skip Bayless from ESPN's First Take. So far at the end of August, a panel of experts (so to speak) on the show have been giving their selections for Top 3 Greatest Players of All-Time soon after LeBron James publicly announced his. He chose, of course Michael Jordan, and then Dr. J & Larry Bird - followed by Magic Johnson after he was asked to name a fourth. And then more recently, current and past players were giving their Mount Rushmore picks (Top 4) with assortment of mixed opinions. LeBron gave his in a more serious interview during the 2014 All-Star break when he then chose Jordan, Magic, Bird, and then Oscar Robertson! Hard to argue with those picks.Well, also, this is partly what this new 2013 release is all about, ranking the greatest players of all-time. LeBron himself would be amazed of what is written about him as a player. In addition, every chapter on every player has an awesome and unmatched description of his attributes an very own skill set!This book is a must have for all basketball fans. It contains hardcore facts and stats of The NBA's 50 Greatest Players of All-Time (rankings of Magic, Bird, Jordan, Wilt, Russell, Oscar, Dream and the rest of the greats of the game- find out who's in the top 10?) with exclusive projected rankings of seven current players? As they approach their primes and where they might end up in the Elite Rankings of All-Time! On the cover of the book and on its first page title, instead of changing the subtitle from projected pick six?, to a projected super seven! I have decided to keep both subtitles. Within the 57 chapter player rankings, there is also an additional 50 plus players written about exclusively and extensively including Kevin Love in Blake Griffin's chapter as potentially becoming the greatest power forward of the current era. In the player comparisons throughout, it distinguishes which players are better than others from an objective point of view- which in turn allows you to judge for yourselves! For example: Is Wilt Chamberlain better than Bill Russell or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar? Is Magic Johnson better than Larry Bird? Is Kobe Bryant better than Jerry West? Is Tim Duncan better than Karl Malone? Is John Stockton better than Isaih Thomas? Also listed is an All-Time NBA First Team, Second Team, and Third Team based on projected rankings. The book is filled with player introductions including a mini-biography, player opinions from past and current great players, player attributes and skill sets, records and individual accolades, award and honors, player rankings and player comparisons throughout, and a player's chronological history year by year with interceding player evaluations of the NBA's elite and players outside the top 50. The book was completed at near 200,000 words. And finally the most interesting part of this book, is that I have created a one-of-a-kind chart (as mentioned above) for individual accolades, honors and awards of the 50 greatest basketball players of all-time!
Why Africa? an abstract first painted in 1993 and reproduced in collage in 2004, is variously described by his admirers as an emotional revelation. The work depicts the African question problems and prospects including political instability, corruption, and poverty in the midst of rich natural and human resources. Thus, Why Africa? inspired him to write a book on the subject, applying his creativity with a unique perspective on the African case. Bona has written one book (unpublished) titled: The Ancient and Modern (1992) a story on Urualla, his ancestral origin in Nigeria.
