"Splendid. . . . Like an all-star game between hard covers."
--David M. Shribman, The Wall Street Journal

"A great hoops book. . . . Casts a wide net that goes far beyond the NBA . . . [to] speak to the multitudes contained within the game, whether it's played on the biggest stage in the world or a playground after dark."
-- Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News "An embarrassment of riches. . . . This collection is a slam dunk for anyone who loves basketball."

"Deserves a place on the shelf of any self-respecting hoops fan."
-- Alex Belth, Stacks "What a terrific book. . . . Wolff's basketball anthology is such a wonderful surprise."
