Book Review: Swish

When most people think of basketball they think of Lebron James or Kobe Bryant flying in for a dunk. But in Swish, the Quest for Basketball's Perfect Shot it talks about the other shots that maybe you don't normally see. It also talks about the great moments in basketball history like when Christian Laettner hauled down a 70 foot pass from Grant Hill, turned, dribbled and then put up a shot. Swish! It also talks about the different shots that you see every day. This book talks about the amazing records that people have set and some that might never be broken. Here is a cool fact you may read about...The record for most free throws in a row is 97 that was set by Michael Williams in 1992-93 to 1993-94. In all, this book talks about the lighter side of basketball.
