Basketball Booklist: Books on the “To Read” List

I love reading almost as much as I love writing.  I have an constantly-growing list of books that I am planning to read that are non-sports related, but the list of basketball-related books has been growing as well. Here is a list of basketball books that I hope that I’ve read at some point in the next five years.

Basketball books on the “To Read” list:

King of the Court: Bill Russell and the Basketball Revolution by Aram Goudsouzian
