Slam Dunk! The Top 10 Lists of Everything in Basketball by Sports Illustrated Kids

Greatest basketball player of all time...well, let’s just say that SIK’s pick won’t surprise you and this book is full of rankings that will inspire controversy among readers passionate about basketball.  The large format size emphasizes the full-color photos, sure to appeal to social readers and browsers, as well as serious fans and players.  Foregoing an introduction in favor of jumping right into “Top 10 Greatest Players,” this volume encompasses thirty-two lists, some spread out over several pages, and including topics such as “coolest jerseys,” “teams,” “trades,” and “WNBA players,”... What’s that?  You can’t believe that women don’t show up until page thirty-four and none are among the “greatest players?”  Me neither.  This book will be popular anyway.  Fodder for discussion on multiple fronts.--Jessica Fenster-Sparber
