The Book of Basketball is…


…is like the New Bill James Historical Abstract if Bill James was into basketball and pop culture and a little more Bones McCoy than Spock.

That was my take on it. Kevin Pelton goes into a little more depth.

One section that Simmons wrote was about a wine cellar list, where he picks certain vintage of players for a game where the earth’s survival hinges on the outcome. I think it would be neat to spitball a similar baseball team. Who’d get picked first? ’23 Ruth? ’09 Honus Wagner? Or are has the game changed too much since then?
