Vintage NBA June 7 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The pioneers of the NBA is a great piece of history that should be heard. After all they paved the way for today's players.
Want to know how the NBA got started? July 14 2011
By Norman Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I feel fortunate in that I was very close to the beginnings of the NBA. Living in Marion, Indiana in the late 1940s and early 1950s I was able to see the NBA formed. Few people know that Indiana had three teams in the NBA in the early years. They were the Anderson Packers, the Indianapolis Olympians and the Ft. Wayne Pistons. I saw them all play and have recently been privileged to even talk to some of those old time players. Needless to say, this book held my attention as I learned even more about the formulation of the NBA. It is a fascinating book for anyone to read who has the slightest interest in how the NBA got started. I loved it. Norman Jones, Ed.

Perspectives from the players themselves Nov. 20 2008
By Peter Robert Casey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There's no better way to learn about basketball history than to hear directly from the players that created it. I learned a lot from this book and I hope that these pioneers are considered for future pension inclusion.
