In the 40 years the San Antonio Spurs have been in the NBA, Tim Duncan played 19 of them. A star from the moment he put on the Silver and Black, and productive through his final season, Duncan's career is among the best the league has ever seen. The Big Fundamental won Rookie of the Year in 1998 and his first NBA championship in 1999, on his way to five NBA titles, three NBA Finals MVPs, two NBA regular season MVPs, 15 All-Star game appearances, and countless other accolades. Perhaps most impressive, he achieved it all without putting himself before the team, and he left the game with his franchise still in contention for an NBA title. Tim Duncan: Team-First Superstar is the ultimate tribute to the Spurs legend, covering 19 years of hardwood genius – including nearly 100 full-color photographs, giving fans a glimpse into the early days of Timmy's career when he burst onto the NBA scene as the sidekick to David Robinson, to establishing the renowned Spurs culture with Coach Gregg Popovich, to avenging a 2013 NBA Finals loss to the Heat with a dramatic title in 2014. The book also explores Duncan's status as one of the best teammates of all time, celebrating his relationships with fellow Spurs heroes Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. A must-have keepsake for Spurs fans and Duncan aficionados alike, Tim Duncan: Team-First Superstar is the perfect commemoration of an NBA icon; one of the most humble superstars in all of sports history.

What do Julius Erving, Larry Brown, Moses Malone, Bob Costas, the Indiana Pacers, the San Antonio Spurs and the Slam Dunk Contest have in common? They all got their professional starts in the American Basketball Association. What do Julius Erving, Larry Brown, Moses Malone, Bob Costas, the Indiana Pacers, the San Antonio Spurs and the Slam Dunk Contest have in common? They all got their professional starts in the American Basketball Association. The NBA may have won the financial battle, but the ABA won the artistic war. With its stress on wide-open individual play, the adoption of the 3-point shot and pressing defense, and the encouragement of flashy moves and flying dunks, today's NBA is still—decades later —just the ABA without the red, white and blue ball. Loose Balls is, after all these years, the definitive and most widely respected history of the ABA. It's a wild ride through some of the wackiest, funniest, strangest times ever to hit pro sports—told entirely through the (often incredible) words of those who played, wrote and connived their way through the league's nine seasons.

Foreword by Malcolm Gladwell Newly updated with fresh takes on LeBron, Kobe, the Celtics & more* Bill Simmons, the wildly opinionated and thoroughly entertaining basketball addict known to millions as ESPN.com’s The Sports Guy, has written the definitive book on the past, present, and future of the NBA. From the age-old question of who actually won the rivalry between Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain to the one about which team was truly the best of all time, Simmons opens—and then closes, once and for all—every major pro basketball debate. Then he takes it further by completely reevaluating not only how NBA Hall of Fame inductees should be chosen but how the institution must be reshaped from the ground up, the result being the Pyramid: Simmons’s one-of-a-kind five-level shrine to the ninety-six greatest players in the history of pro basketball. And ultimately he takes fans to the heart of it all, as he uses a conversation with one NBA great to uncover that coveted thing: The Secret of Basketball. Comprehensive, authoritative, controversial, hilarious, and impossible to put down (even for Celtic-haters), The Book of Basketball offers every hardwood fan a courtside seat beside the game’s finest, funniest, and fiercest chronicler. *Including even more footnotes! From the Trade Paperback edition.

When Mexicans Could Play Ball

In 1939, a team of short, scrappy kids from a vocational school established specifically for Mexican Americans became the high school basketball champions of San Antonio, Texas. Their win, and the ensuing riot it caused, took place against a backdrop of shifting and conflicted attitudes toward Mexican Americans and American nationalism in the WWII era. “Only when the Mexicans went from perennial runners-up to champs,” García writes, “did the emotions boil over.” The first sports book to look at Mexican American basketball specifically, When Mexicans Could Play Ball is also a revealing study of racism and cultural identity formation in Texas. Using personal interviews, newspaper articles, and game statistics to create a compelling narrative, as well as drawing on his experience as a sports writer, García takes us into the world of San Antonio’s Sidney Lanier High School basketball team, the Voks, which became a two-time state championship team under head coach William Carson “Nemo” Herrera. An alumnus of the school himself, García investigates the school administrators’ project to Americanize the students, Herrera’s skillful coaching, and the team’s rise to victory despite discrimination and violence from other teams and the world outside of the school. Ultimately, García argues, through their participation and success in basketball at Lanier, the Voks players not only learned how to be American but also taught their white counterparts to question long-held assumptions about Mexican Americans.
