The first game was played in a YMCA in 1891, with a soccer ball and peach baskets nailed to the supports of a running track that circled the gym. A century later, hundreds of millions of people watched as the greatest player of all time clinched his sixth championship in eight years.
Along the way, the sport of basketball has been remade and refined, often on the strength of a single person's determination, or in response to a team that dominated an era.
BASKETBALL: THE DREAM TEAMS is an all-encompassing look at how the evolution of the sport, both on court and off.
We'll examine the impact of landmark teams like the original Celtics (who hailed from New York!) and John Wooden's UCLA squads, and meet the pioneers who introduced the jump shot and other innovations to the game. And we'll detail the turning points in basketball history, from Bill Russell's arrival in Boston to the 1979 NCAA Finals showdown between Larry Bird and Magic Johnson that foreshadowed a new era in the NBA.
Over thirty players, coaches and scholars share the great moments that have left their mark not just on the sport, but society as well.
