NBA 75: The Definitive History
By Zarum, Dave        
Hardcover - English

The most iconic moments and stories of the NBA.

In NBA 75, sports writer and basketball super fan Dave Zarum tells the story of the NBA, all 75 years -- from its early barnstorming days to the multi-billion-dollar sports league it is today.

Readers are treated to all the biggest moments and greatest superstars, with over 75 stories ranging from Jerry West's 33-win streak Lakers, through Jordan's repeat three-peat Bulls, to Steph Curry and the 73-win Warriors and beyond.

But this retrospective doesn't shy away from the league's controversies, covering its struggles with racial bigotry, Magic Jonson's HIV diagnosis, Len Bias's tragic draft-night death, and the league's cocaine-fuelled late seventies when the Finals were broadcast tape-delayed.

Each story is fully illustrated with iconic photos and accompanied by stat boxes and side stories of some of the Association's more curious and overlooked moments.

Some of the events covered in NBA 75:

  • 1946: The first professional basketball game between the New York Knicks and the Toronto Huskies
  • 1969: The legendary duels between Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell
  • 1976: The merger of the ABA and NBA
  • 1980: The arrival of Larry Bird and Magic Johnson
  • 1993: Air Jordan and his Bulls dynasty
  • 2006: Kobe Bryant scores 81 points
  • 2010: LeBron James makes his Miami decision
  • 2016: Steph Curry and the Warriors blow a 3-1 lead
  • 2020: The COVID-19 stoppage in play and the Bubble.

NBA 75 is the definitive guide to the history of the NBA -- perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about the league they love or simply catch up on what they've been missing.
