Praise For…


“Shea Serrano’s new book… is a hilarious, informative group of passages that answer questions you never realized needed to be asked."


"Shea Serrano's Basketball (And Other Things) is equal parts hilarious and enlightening... this is the ultimate book on basketball fandom.”


“Cleverly written and beautifully illustrated… It's a must for any basketball fan.”
 


“Even if you’re a basketball novice or die-hard Spurs fan like Shea, this is a perfect companion to his Rap Year Book: full of myths, what-ifs, and hyperspecific fanaticism.”


“The book is Serrano’s testament to the great joys of basketball fandom…”


“It's full of hilarious hypotheticals, fun footnotes, and magnificent illustrations…”


"...hilarious and insightful..."


With colorful, comic-book depictions of Spurs great Tim Duncan and other NBA stars by artist Arturo Torres, Serrano drops some serious and seriously funny knowledge on a sprawling range of hoops debates.“


“The sports-obsessed teen will definitely love this (even if they don’t read any other books).”


“…weird and very fun…”


“An original work that captures the spirit of basketball.”


"All of the musings—the book spans 240 pages and is comprised of 33 chapters—is playfully illustrated by Arturo Torres and serves as a reminder that although basketball fans may get all riled debating GOAT status and greatest teams, the NBA, at its core, is just plain fun."


“The questions Serrano asks and answers (and that Arturo Torres illustrates in engaging graphic-novel style) includes many barstool argument-starters ("Who's the Greatest Dunker in NBA History?," "What Year Was Michael Jordan the Best Version of Michael Jordan?") as well as some nerdily conceptual ones.“
 
 

— Jim Higgins

"Amazing artwork by Torres adds Jack Kirby-esque crackle to the book..."



“Serrano deftly unravels the history of basketball via ridiculous debates, quirky answers and unexpected wisdom.”
