The N.b.a.’s Infancy

Thank you for the article on the National Basketball Association (“The First Season,” May/June issue); it certainly does give a bit of much needed perspective about our “roots.” If I tried to convince some folks that N.B.A. basketball and its precursors were accurately described there (as I know they were), people would assume that I was hallucinating. It was a great read.
