The perfect team : the best players, coach, and GM -- let the debate begin! by Natinal Basketball Association( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you could select the greatest basketball team in history, who'd make your roster? How do you even build a team--with pure talent alone or with a combination of talent and role players? In this book, the NBA tapped into top basketball experts, rounded up the greatest players, coach, and GM from different eras of the game, and now presents its argument for basketball's most unbeatable lineup. Each member of the team has been picked as the embodiment of a particular trait such as leadership or competitive drive, rather than simply for being best at his position. And each player tells his story, shares his ideas about "the perfect team," and talks about what makes great basketball. Not just an argument for the best team of all time, this is an anatomy of the game presented by those who love it most and play it best.--From publisher description
