By Terry Pluto
Another gem from the man who brought us Tall Tales and
Falling From Grace.
This book is in the panel discussion forman that Pluto often uses and tells the history of
the ABA. It covers the owners, the players, the franchises, the gimmicks, the
stories, and the behind-the-scenes stories.
I preferred Tall Tales more, but that is because I found the story interesting. If you want to learn more about the ABA and it's stars (such as Dr. J, Connie Hawkins, David Thompson, Mel Daniels, Rick Berry, etc), then this book is a must grab.
