"An entertaining and informative narrative that re-creates the golden age of the NBA."--The New York Times Book Review "Pluto has been steadily building a reputation as one of the nation's top basketball writers... This fine oral history will surely enhance that reputation. After a brief account of the National Basketball Association's formative period, which ended in 1954 when the 24-second shot clock changed the game forever, Pluto describes the exciting events in basketball during 1956-66, when the Boston Celtics dominated the league. Unlike many comparable histories in which the superstars have declined to participate, this one includes contributions from Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Red Auerbach and dozens of other players."--Publishers WeeklyFrom the Publisher:
Using a lively oral history format, Terry Pluto provides the best look yet at the glory days of the NBA. "Tall Tales' is essential reading for any fan who understands that the history of the league does not begin and end with Michael Jordan. Terry Pluto is a sportswriter for the "Akron Beacon Journal" and the author of several books, most recently "Our Tribe: A Baseball Memoir".
