Hoops fans want to know more than just who won the game. They want to know the hows and whys and the reasons and statistics to back up their knowledge. Sure, like all fans they're opinionated-but they want to have reasoned opinions and engaging insights. Thanks to PRO BASKETBALL PROSPECTUS, they can have all that and more.Where other basketball annuals simply reflect statistics back to the reader like a mirror, John Hollinger in PRO BASKETBALL PROSPECTUS instead treats statistics with an x-ray machine. He shows how you can break down statistics to try to determine the root cause of a problem as well as how you can combine certain statistics for an overall view of a player or team. He doesn't just tell you who is good or bad; he gives you a new way to appreciate every player's skills and weaknesses.In last year's edition, Hollinger discussed the many facets of quality defense and examined who was the best rebounder of all time. This year, Hollinger gives you an in-depth look at rookies and how they develop-or sometimes don't. Every basketball fan will gain incredible new insights into the game with PRO BASKETBALL PROSPECTUS.
