Book Reviews & Awards

• “Lukasz Muniowski covers a lot of ground in his look at the history of sixth men in the NBA, a book worthy of a starting role.”—Kerry Eggers, author, Jail Blazers: How the Portland Trail Blazers Became the Bad Boys of Basketball

• “Łukasz Muniowski broadens the perspective of basketball with Sixth Men: NBA History off the Bench. All of the legends and their roundabout paths to stardom are here: From Kobe Bryant and Kevin McHale, to James Harden and Bob McAdoo, to Boris Diaw, Robert (Big Shot) Horry and Frank Ramsey, who established the necessity of the sixth man as the Boston Celtics formed their original dynasty in the 1950s. Sixth Men, like the players it depicts, is a game changer.”—Ian Thomsen, author, The Soul of Basketball
