Why do NBA players only have 24 seconds to score a basket? What's the geometry behind making the perfect shot? Become a basketball pro and learn all about the numbers and math behind this popular sport.

Numbers are everywhere in basketball--from the dimensions of the court to the points you can score to the digits on each player's jersey. In this awesome new book, you'll learn how these numbers make basketball the game we know and love today, and also get a few tips along the way on how to improve your game. As Kobe Bryant wrote in his Foreword for the book, Sucess is in the detail--and the detail is in the math. Read about amazing statistics and learn how to track the stats of your favorite basketball stars. Discover how to improve your bounce pass and chest pass with geometry and physics. Colorful graphics explain the math behind the sport, and cool photos make you feel like you're right on the court.

   MATH = BASKETBALL = FUN
One of the great equalizers of basketball and math. As a parent, I can see why kids can't put it down. This book is easy to pick up and read a few pages or read straight through because it is filled with cool ways that math and numbers connect to basketball, the photos and pictures are bright and fun, and the footnotes are easy to read. This book is by far the best. This book was recommended to me by a 3rd or 4th grader. If you think you know what I'm talking about, get it! This book will set records.
