Book excerpt: Basketball has evolved to one of the most commonly played sports worldwide. Regardless of how well you think you know basketball, there’s bound to be questions in this book to challenge and entertain, to stimulate discussion, and to start and settle arguments. Featuring questions from the professional, collegiate, and women's games, this book covers it all—the players, the coaches, the arenas, the Olympics, and much more. Some of the questions the book answers include: &bull Why is uniform No. 6 retired by the Sacramento Kings? &bull Who holds the record for most points in Game 7 of the NBA Finals? &bull At what Big Ten school was baseball slugger Frank Howard also a basketball standout? &bull Where was the first NCAA Final Four in 1939? &bull Who was the MVP in the WNBA’s first season? &bull And 996 more!
