James Littlejohn's words leap off the page and bring legends to life, while Matthew Shipley's colorful, stylish illustrations are sure to delight fans young and old. What started as a successful Kickstarter project from two passionate NBA fans is now the perfect read for little ballers everywhere!


"The dynamic, eyecatching artwork is appealing, and the breathless enthusiasm of the text is pretty infectious. For little ones with die-hard NBA-fanatic adults in their lives, this could be a lot of fun.?"—Booklist
