Super Basketball Infographics
From the Series Super Sports Infographics
Keeping up with the fascinating facts about basketball can make your brain feel like it’s been dribbled down the court! You hear about great players (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was named NBA MVP six times), powerful dynasties (the Boston Celtics won eight NBA championships in a row), and huge performances (Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in a single game).
Colorful infographics convey key information about basketball—such as diagramming plays, explaining game strategies, and celebrating record holders. Content-rich “data art” allows readers to take in information through visual literacy skills. The vibrant infographics on each spread appeal to struggling readers and help them analyze and interpret information and statistics.
