Ever since I started reading Pacific Rims a book written by Rafe Bartholomew who lives in New York, where he is an assistant editor at Harper’s Magazine at that time he wrote his book. He traveled to Manila in November 2005 on a U.S. Fulbright grant and remained in the Philippines (with a few brief returns to the States) until October 2008, I wanted to read more and learn more about the history of basketball including seeing a video clip of the ball game from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s up until the late 80’s.
Luckily I was able to find one on the Internet. Thanks to YouTube and other video sharing sites I can not only see a video clip but a full length basketball games and documentaries on how basketball evolves, how the rules changed, the court designs and get to know NBA players from the past to present.
You too can watch it, thanks to certain JamesJones22 account and www.shortform.com in uploading videos credits are due to them. Grab a pop corn and Enjoy watching NBA Classics!
