Summary

Basketball's biggest stars, with special emphasis on how nice guys finish first!

Basketball Stars is chock-full of the biggest superstars of the NBA, as well as a primer on the parts of the game that matter most to kids.

Players like Steph Curry, LeBron James and Kevin Durant line the pages of this book because their tremendous hardcourt skills have paired with their will to succeed.

From backgrounds as diverse as the population of the world, these all-star ballers have had to deal with all manner of road blocks to get to the top of the basketball world.

Through adversity, defeat and triumph, players like DeMar DeRozan, Russell Westbrook and Zach Randolph have carved a space in basketball history for themselves, and each one gives back to the community in ways that will benefit kids today.

Lighting up smiles by day and hoops by night, the athletes featured in Basketball Stars are a shining example of what can happen if you keep focused on your goals and make the right choices.

These basketball stars are role models for today's generation.
