You’re Only As Good As Your Next One: 100 Great Films, 100 Good Films, and 100 for Which I Should Be Shot by Mike Medavoy (with Josh Young)
The Book of Basketball: The NBA According to the Sports Guy by Bill Simmons
- From ranking the top 96 players of all time, the top 10 greatest teams of all time and deciding which 12 players he’d select in a game against martians with the fate of mankind on the line, Simmons covers it all. If you like anything that Simmons writes for ESPN, and you like basketball, you’ll love this. No one cares more about the NBA as evidenced by the fact that Simmons spent 3 years watching hundreds of NBA games, reading countless books on the history of the league and exhausting the vaults of sites like Sports Illustrated. Oh yeah, and his son’s middle name is “Oakley,” after the real life “Shaft” of the NBA, Charles Oakley.
