When the NBA released its supposedly authoritative list of the top 50 players, basketball fans everywhere begged to differ. In Who's Better, Who's Best? Elliot Kalb, known to TV viewers as ABC's 'Mr. Stats,' interweaves numbers, facts and anecdotes to flesh out the central question in every basketball fan's mind: Who's the best? His choices are provocative (Michael Jordan isn't #1; he's not even #2), framed by discussions with unorthodox sources and respected NBA experts, players and coaches. A satisfying book for anyone hungry for statistics, bar bets and debate, this is the ultimate behind-the-numbers story of the best of the NBA. 410 Pgs. 2004.
