Book Review: Loose Balls

Loose Balls was written by Terry Pluto in 1990 documenting the short but eclectic life of the American Basketball Association.  I read this book two years ago but I had to do a review.  This book was very entertaining.  Anyone who enjoys basketball from the 70's should pick it up.  It is an easy read detailing the wild ride by players and owners of the upstart ABA.  While not specifically written in a comedic manner the shenanigens pulled during the life of the ABA can't help but make you smile and even laugh.  The book does a great job in detailing what went on in a league with crazy characters, future NBA stars, teams that were lucky to last a full season, and where nothing surprised you if it happened.  This isn't a long review and is short on details but again pick it up if you have any interest whatsoever in basketball of that era, the ABA, or the NBA.  You won't be disappointed.
