Dust jacket has some wear, the inside pages are clean, tight & unmarked.     SynopsisFull Court tells story of an often-forgotten but remarkable time in St. Louis sports history--the era of the NBA's St. Louis Hawks. Author Greg Maracek has woven together a compilation of interviews from the Hawks players to deliver a history of a former perennial power in the National Basketball Association. Between 1955 and 1968, pro basketball closely rivaled the attention--and at times outstripped the success--of the baseball's St. Louis Cardinals. A storied rivalry with the fabled Boston Celtics is credited by many as the single most important catalyst to the national growth of NBA interest. Names of Hawks' stars became legendary to basketball fans. Leading the way is Hall of Fame superstar Bob Pettit, the first player to score 20,000 points--and later 25,000--in a career. Other Hall of Fame Hawks include Cliff Hagan, Slater Martin, Len Wilkens, and "Easy" Ed Macauley. Pettit's 50-point performance in the 1958 championship game, NBA doubleheaders at Kiel Auditorium, owner Ben Kerner's sometimes wild and wacky postgame promotions, division and conference titles, sold-out crowds, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Bob Cousy, and one incredible St. Louis World Championship season makes for riveting reading not only for fans of St. Louis sports but also for lovers of NBA lore. Greg Marecek has been in the sports business for 35 years, serving as a sportswriter and editor, sportscaster, national sports syndicate, and sports-radio owner. He is a member of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame.Product IdentifiersISBN-101933370033ISBN-139781933370033eBay Product ID (ePID)59139341Key DetailsAuthorGreg MarecekNumber Of Pages224 pagesFormatHardcoverPublication Date2006-04-01LanguageEnglishPublisherReedy PressPublication Year20060000Additional DetailsIllustratedYesDimensionsWeight18.1 OzHeight0.9 In.Width6.3 In.Length9 In.Target AudienceGroupTrade                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 If you like deals on books check out my                                                               "Bulk Lots of Books" category                                                                                    in my eBay store.
