Pro Hoops History

Authored by veteran sports writer and basketball historian Curtis Harris, Pro-Hoops History is "dedicated to spreading and creating knowledge related to the history of professional basketball." Harris earned an MA in History from American University, where he wrote his thesis on the early history of basketball between 1891 and 1910 (visitors can download and read his thesis via the April 30, 2014 post on this blog). Here, readers may learn about many aspects of basketball history, from its late nineteenth century origins through the present. Blog posts include profiles of players throughout history, statistical analysis, franchise histories, and more. Harris also discusses Irish basketball; an excerpt from a new biography of Earl Lloyd (the first African-American NBA player); and what the NBA record book looked like in 1964. Those interested in learning more about the history of basketball will want to check out the Historiography and Sources section. Basketball fans will also want to check out Harris's Facebook page, @ProHoopsHistory.
