Full description for FreeDarko Presents the Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac
The indispensible, amazingly illustrated companion to today's NBA--a roundball Rosetta Stone that hilariously decodes the trends and tendencies of pro basketball. The NBA of the moment is a league of hugely charismatic celebrities, crackling aesthetic intrigue, sociopolitical undercurrents, and raw humanity: every Kobe Bryant pump-fake or LeBron James dunk holds within it a Shaq-size load of meaning. "The Macro-Phenomenal NBA Almanac" is a one-of-a-kind guide to this tumultuous and exciting league. In a series of brilliantly illustrated chapters--from Master Builders like Tim Duncan to Destiny's Kids like Amare Stoudemire to Lost Souls like Lamar Odom--the almanac breaks down the styles of the NBA's most colorful characters, showing what each one reveals through his play and conduct, both on the court and off. Filled with some of the smartest, funniest sportswriting known to fankind, this book will cast an entirely new light on one of our favorite games.
