Relive spectacular moments from the history of basketball that illustrates the grace, speed, and power of the game. Whether its Michael Jordan's last jump shot as a Chicago Bull, Dr. J's spectacular baseline moves in the 1980 Finals, or a jaw-dropping dunk by Kobe Bryant, Basketball's Best Shots shows some of the greatest athletes in the world performing the most stunning, gravity-defying feats ever caught on film. Brought to you by NBA Entertainment photographers, this is basketball at its most thrilling. Including more than 300 photographs and a foreword by Walt "Clyde" Frazier, this book captures the grace, passion, and energy of one of the world's most popular sports.

About the Author:

Walt Frazier, one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History, currently serves as an analyst for Madison Square Garden Network's coverage of the New York Knicks. A seven-time NBA All-Star and a member of Basketball's Hall of Fame (1987), Frazier helped lead the Knicks to two NBA championships (1970 and '73).

From Publishers Weekly:

Pictures of athletes in motion are often great photographs-qua-photographs, capturing the twitch of a perfectly honed muscle or the flash of magisterial bravado over a beautiful young face-but according to this glossy compendium, they also contribute to a cultural narrative beyond their decisive moments. More than a simple document of basketball players in flight, Basketball's Best Shots seeks to tell a story about changing cultural styles and even, ambitiously, about the invention of modern sports celebrity itself. Stars such as Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and-of course-Michael Jordan appear, along with many other recognizable figures, to trace an evolution of glitziness and grit, as told through the years in still images of soaring men in short shorts and, more recently, soaring men in large, baggy shorts. Sometimes the book veers off the court as well, to include such piquant images as Frazier in a velour hat and elephant coat, leaning on his Rolls Royce, or Pat Riley staring at a golden trophy. Whether it delivers its argument about the power of images to create myth in the end is doubtful, but this volume covers familiar ground with panache.
