Learn the Incredible Story of Basketball Superstar Tim Duncan!Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device!In Tim Duncan: The Inspiring Story of Basketball's Greatest Power Forward, you'll read about the inspirational story of basketball's greatest power forwards Tim Duncan. Tim Duncan has kept the San Antonio Spurs relevant in the NBA for every year of his long NBA career. In this short book, we will learn about how Duncan became the incredible power forward that he is today. Starting first with a look into his childhood and early life, we'll learn about Tim Duncan prior to entering the NBA, along with his time in the NBA playing alongside David Robinson to his time playing with Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili leading the San Antonio Spurs.Tim Duncan is easily one of the greatest, if not the greatest power forward to play the game of basketball. For a man who once was just a kid fulfilling a promise to his parents to earn a college degree at Wake Forest, Tim Duncan has come a long way over the course of his basketball career.It will be exciting to see how Duncan and the Spurs do in this year's 2013-2014 NBA playoffs.Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood College Years at Wake Forest Duncan's NBA Career Tim Duncan's Personal Life Tim's Impact on Basketball and Beyond Duncan's Legacy An excerpt from the book:A half-decade ago, the Spurs were the most hated team in the league. In the eyes of the media and fans alike, they were not the brilliant, beautiful team that executed basketball at a level which no other team could do. They were an ugly, defense-first boring team that would never hesitate to use dirty tricks, flop, or work the referees to beat more exciting, fun teams like the "Seven Seconds or Less" Phoenix Suns. Bruce Bowen was a nasty piece of work who would kick an opposing player in the face if he could get away with it, Robert Horry hip-checked Steve Nash into the stands in the playoffs and Manu Ginobili was a cowardly flopper. Duncan may not have received quite the ire of his teammates, but he was boring. A superstar without a doubt, but one who got to play on stacked teams unlike Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant who struggled on mediocre teams in the mid-2000s. But do the Spurs care about the fact that those who love them today are also those who castigated them in the past? Not in the slightest. They just keep winning one 50-game season after another, chasing championships and glory. Right in the middle of that, Tim Duncan, oblivious to the roars or boos of the crowd, continues to play, with the same efficiency and genius that he has brought to the NBA over the past 17 years of his career.

Steph Curry's success is not an accident. Steph Curry has transformed the Golden State Warriors franchise, spearheading the Warriors in the 2013-2014 NBA season to their second consecutive playoff birth. While the Warriors ultimately fell to the Clippers in Game 7, an exciting future presents itself for Golden State as the organization extended Klay Thompson's contract to keep the Splash Brothers together for several more years to come.

The team was losing by as many as eleven points at the start of the second half, but Curry put on a heroic performance managing to score thirty points in the second half. This gave the Wildcats their first win in a NCAA tournament since 1969. Something similar happened in the second round as well. Curry was limited to five points in the first half against heavy favorites Georgetown and his team was trailing by seventeen points at one point. Curry managed to score twenty-five points in the second half, helping his team advance to the next round. Georgetown was the second seeded team in the nation that year. The whole nation noticed Curry's talent as the Wildcats lost to the top seeded Kansas Jayhawks after winning another battle versus third seeded Wisconsin. Curry managed to break several records in the process including: most three pointers in a season and joined an elite group of players to score more than 30 points in their first four games of a NCAA tournament. Stephen Curry made sure that Davidson's name would not be forgotten in the near future with his performances over his three years there. Now Curry has transferred his work ethic, attitude towards the game, and personal values into his NBA career. The future looks bright for Steph Curry at the age of twenty-five as he has already left a significant legacy at Davidson College and in the NBA as well.

DeMar DeRozan has quickly emerged as one of the premier scorers in the NBA, with a ruthless ability to score that reminds many of none other than a combination of Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady. Since being drafted as the ninth overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft, DeMar has played a significant role in the Raptors' emergence as a force in the Eastern Conference. Paired with Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan and the Raptors are a formidable team in the East, and will likely remain so for years to come. In this unauthorized biography, we'll explore DeMar's incredible life story and impact on the game of basketball. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Childhood and Early Life High School Career College Career NBA Career Getting Drafted, The Rookie Campaign, The Development Years Teaming Up with Kyle Lowry, the Rudy Gay Experiment, First All-Star Season, Playoff Debut, Injury Struggles, Lowry's Evolution into an All-Star Breaking Through to the Conference Finals, Road to Becoming Elite International Career Personal Life and Impact on Basketball Legacy and Future An excerpt from the book: The shooting guard position has always been one of the more difficult spots to play in the NBA. Shooting guards are required first and foremost to be among the best scorers on their team since their primary role of the team is to, of course, shoot and make their shots. While scoring the ball may not sound like the most difficult task to do, what makes the shooting guard a difficult position in the NBA is the level of skill required to be elite. As far as the history of the league is concerned, there have not been a lot of great shooting guards compared to centers, point guards, and forwards due to the relative difficulty the position requires for the player to be elite. But even though there have not been a lot of great shooting guards in the NBA's history, the best of the best happen to be those that play that position. Since the dawn of the league, the first great shooting guard was the NBA logo himself, Jerry West. Then there came guys like George Gervin and Pete Maravich during the dark 70's era of the league. Come the 80's and 90's, Reggie Miller and Clyde Drexler dominated the position. Those that came after them were Kobe Bryant, Ray Allen, Vince Carter, and Dwyane Wade. And Michael Jordan, the greatest player to have ever played the game, is known as a shooting guard. There have not been a lot of great shooting guards, but they were always the best of their respective eras.

Learn the Incredible Story of Basketball Superstar James Harden!Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device!In James Harden: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Premier Shooting Guards, you'll read about the inspirational story of one of basketball's premier shooting guards James Harden. James Harden has been making a splash playing in the National Basketball Association for the Houston Rockets. In this short book, we will learn about how James became the star shooting guard that he is today. Starting first with a look into his childhood and early life, we'll learn about James Harden prior to entering the NBA, along with his time in the NBA as a sixth man for the Oklahoma City Thunder behind Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant to his time leading the Houston Rockets.James Harden has revitalized and ignited a fire in Houston, leading the Rockets alongside Dwight Howard into the 2013-214 NBA Playoffs. It will be exhilarating to see how James and the Rockets do in this year's NBA playoffs.Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood High School Years of James Harden College Years at Arizona State James Harden: Draft Bust? Harden's NBA Career Fear the Beard and Unique Fashion Style Impact on Basketball and Beyond James Harden's Legacy An excerpt from the book:On April 4, 2014, the Houston Rockets were in trouble.With the arrival of superstar center Dwight Howard, the Rockets were looking to win a championship for the first time in 20 years. Yet while the 2013-14 NBA season had gone smoothly for the Rockets, a potential catastrophe loomed on the horizon. They had just lost three straight games for the first time all season. Dwight Howard was not playing due to ankle issues. And if that was not bad enough, the Oklahoma City Thunder, led by probable MVP Kevin Durant, were in town. The Thunder had defeated the Rockets in all three of their earlier games, blowing them out by 31 points in the first contest. Houston faced the very real possibility of losing the first-round home court advantage that they fought so hard all season to earn.But James Harden would have none of it. He knew how important it was for the Rockets to break the three game losing streak, and he also knew that Houston would clinch a playoff spot with a win. So he got to work immediately. On the first possession, he passed the ball so Terrence Jones could hit a wide-open jump shot. On the second possession, he drove the ball in for a layup. Whenever Houston needed points, Harden was there hitting 3-point shots, drilling free throws, and charging to the basket. His former teammate Kevin Durant finished with 28 points for the night, his 40th straight 25-point game - but it was James Harden, with 39 points, who led Houston to the huge 111-107 win. As the seconds ticked off the clock, he hugged his teammates, and then went over to acknowledge another former Thunder teammate, Serge Ibaka, before walking off the court. The Rockets had just clinched the playoffs, and Harden had shown another example of how he is one of the best shooting guards in the NBA today.
