What's new @ the library

Basketball is Back !@your Library

The 74th season of the NBA begins on October 22. Those of us who cheered on the Toronto Raptors last season are eager to see who is on the team for this season. With the loss of Kawhi Leonard – will they be as effective?

If you want to once again indulge in the glorious final few weeks of last season with the Raptors, you can check out the book We The Champs, a commemorative book by Alex Wong and Sean Woodley. With full colour photos of dazzling plays and shots, features on key players and summaries of the games – this is a beautiful tribute to the team that did what no other Raptors team has done.

One of the many memorable moments last year, was the long awaited return of Raptors opponent Kevin Durant to the Golden State Warriors and unfortunately, his almost immediate injury. Who is this player that meant so much to the Warriors team? Sportwriter Marcus Thompson II has written a biography of this often controversial star of the game, titled KD: Kevin Durant’s relentless pursuit to be the greatest.

No matter which team you cheer for, if you love the NBA and the game of basketball, you will enjoy Kirk Goldsberry’s book Sprawlball: a visual tour of the new era of the NBA. Since the introduction of the three-point line, the game has changed drastically with players like Steph Curry leading the way. This book is a celebration and a critique of the modern game featuring in-depth analysis, behind-the-scenes stories and amazing facts.

Enjoy these and other basketball books at the Bracebridge Public Library as you prepare for the upcoming season.
