Rise and Fire: Videos

During my research for Rise and Fire, I took full advantage of modern technology. The countless YouTube videos of great basketball players -- from today and decades past -- proved invaluable. Here is a compilation of the videos I used throughout the book, broken down by chapter. Special thanks to Wilt Chamberlain Archive on YouTube, one of the great basketball channels on the site.
