What I’ve Been Reading – FreeDarko Presents: The Undisputed Guide to Pro Basketball History
I’m going to keep this short.
What I’ve Read:
I love basketball. Love it. It’s the best. Absolutely the greatest sport ever created.
I love basketball history. I love everything from Mikan to Shaq, West to Paul. And I love reading books about basketball history.
I love great writing. I worship at the altar of Steinbeck, always searching for beautiful prose. And for that reason, I’ve always found a lot of enjoyment in Free Darko – basketball writing with a literary slant.
With a joy for the game unlike any other. With passion. With soul.
The Free Darko collective’s first book (FreeDarko Presents: The Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac) was sublime. But combine that with the history of America’s most beautiful game, illuminate it with Jacob “Big Baby Belafonte” Weinstein’s illustrations, and you’ve got a masterpiece.
That’s all. I promised to keep it short.
