Basketball History Book

Add to wishlist

Basketball gifts typically run the gamut from balls to, well, balls, but when you're looking to break out from the pack and score a three-pointer, you need a present that's guaranteed to score. The answer? Skip all those ordinary gifts for guys and pick up one of these Basketball History Books that illustrates the backstory of your dude's favorite team in vivid detail.

What's better than a gift for men that takes their personal preferences into account? Choose a basketball team and this historical offering from The New York Times will catalogue all the headline-making stories that make NBA's finest franchises what they are today. Game coverage, in-depth features, playoff results, biographies, and even obituaries — they've all been dug out of the paper's archives and assembled into an elegant leatherette book worthy of a place of pride on your friend or family member's coffee table, mantel, or desk.

Does your dad love the Golden State Warriors? Does your brother know every Knicks stat like he works in the front office himself? Is your cousin the queen of all things Cavaliers? Whether you’re looking for a present for the person who feels more at home on the court than anywhere else or you want a surprise for a total non-athlete who still has a deep, all-encompassing love for the game that made Jordan, Johnson, Bird, and Lebron into household names, this book is a slam dunk.
