KIRKUS REVIEW

Some, like Dave DeBusschere and Hal Greer, are overshadowed by ""flashy"" superstars on their teams. Some, like Mel Daniels and Dan Issel, play in that other league (the ABA) and consequently don't get the sports-page ink. One, Gus Johnson, has been interrupted by injuries. Another, Lenny Wilkens, is just too quiet. And there's Bob Love who simply wasn't given a chance until last season (he's now sung in Chicago). And there's controversy:prone Charlie Scott whose ""outspoken personality"" has obscured his hoop talent. Readable profiles which make the point that not everyone can be a Chamberlain or Maravich.
