Michael Grange has profiled the 50 greatest and most exciting of these players in Basketball's Greatest Stars.

Review quote

'Basketball's Greatest Stars is a collection of 50 profiles of some of the greatest players in the game, from Bob Cousy and Bob Pettit to Michael Jordan and LeBron James. Grange divides them in the "Best of the Best" and the "Best of the Rest." given over to players who, despite their great talents, never quite made superstar status' Dave DeBusschere, Elvin Hayes, Pete Maravich, and John Stockton. 'It's loaded with great game images of high-flying, slam-dunking players' James D. Watts Jr. "Tulsa World".show more
