About the Author
"Beautifully illustrated and sharply written, SprawlBall is both a celebration and a critique of the three-point shot and how teams like the Warriors and Rockets have used it to dominate basketball. Whether you come away appreciating today's NBA even more or longing for the days of the post game and the mid-range shot, if you want to understand how the modern NBA came to be, you'll need to read this book."
-- Nate Silver, editor of fivethirtyeight.com
- Shea Serrano, best-selling author of Basketball (and Other Things) and The Rap Yearbook
"Basketball has changed so much in the last twenty years. This book does an amazing job of describing where the NBA has been, where it is now, and where it's going."
-- Chris Bosh, two-time NBA championship winner
-- Sports Illustrated "This is a fascinating read for today's NBA fans, and the jaunty illustrations by Aaron Dana add both depth and fun."
-- Booklist "Highly recommended for fans of today's NBA and anyone interested in sports analytics."
-- Library Journal "Goldsberry is the premier student of long-range shooting in the N.B.A, and now . . . its premier chronicler as well."
-- New York Times Book Review "Goldsberry has applied his mapmaking skills to basketball. It is not hyperbole to suggest that he has changed the way the game is played by figuring out from where, how often and how well players shoot on the court -- and then visualizing, or rather mapping, the data."
-- Washington Post
