Former New York Times journalist Harvey Araton's 8th book, "Elevated: The Global Rise Of The NBA," arrives April 16th. It's an interesting and unique look at the history of the NBA through a curated collection of New York Times articles published in the paper over the last 30-40 years. Harvey specifically speaks to Magic Johnson's welcome back after his HIV announcement, Michael Jordan's leadership style with the Bulls (and a great huddle story involving Scottie Pippen during the playoffs against the New York Knicks), Ronald Reagan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Red Auerbach's prediction of the NBA's demise with the advent of free agency. Harvey also offers thoughts on why Michael Jordan wins the GOAT debate in his opinion, what competitive balance means in today's NBA, and the two changes he'd make if he were commissioner for a day! via Knit
