Hoops fans want to know more than who won the game. They want to know why their teams won or lost, how they can improve for the next season, and what their chances are to make the playoffs. Pro Bastketball Prospectus answers these questions and more. Where other basketball annuals just regurgitate the basic statistics, John Hollinger offers an innovative interpretation of the numbers. He doesn't just tell you who is good or bad; he gives you a new way to appreciate every player's skills and weaknesses. Pro Basketball Prospectus leaves no aspect of NBA basketball unconsidered. Every player's ability to rebound, pass, and score and how his skills affect the team's success are treated in depth. Hollinger's evaluations often vindicate common knowledge, like the historic greatness of John Stockton's passing, but he also shows why Antawn Jamison or Keith Van Horne are also among the league's best. He analyzes teams on the basis of what has happened in past seasons and forecasts what can be expected in the season ahead. For example, who should the Lakers feature offensively, Kobe Bryant or Shaquille O'Neal? In addition, Hollinger evaluates how the change in defensive rules have influenced the game and altered the way some teams play. Every basketball fan will gain incredible new insights into the game from Pro Basketball Prospectus.
