The Basketball Manifesto
November 17th, 2020
The Basketball Manifesto is a 3,775 page, 1.2 million word-ish basketball reference book. And it is free to download.
It contains reviews, strategies, ideas, opinions, and a whole lot of thoughts on stuff. This document contains reviews, strategy, assessments, ideas and plans for every NBA team and every NBA player. It seeks to:
1) Look at the assets a team has to work with.
2) Look at what it already has.
3) Look at what it needs to address.
4) Lay out conceptual strategy for it all.
5) Discuss without preaching, except in some slightly preachier moments.
It does this 30 times for 30 NBA teams. Then it does the entire G-League, twice. Then it does the annual draft pool, twice. And then it does the EuroLeague…..twice. You get the idea, and if you don’t, you will do once you open it. It’s very, very densely full of content. All in all, it gets quite big.
This is a PDF file, and a live document. The links are navigable; the thing self-references. It is, I hope, a website you can download. And it is the pride of my life.
Download it at the link below, do please share it to all other basketball fans, email me your thoughts, and let’s have a conversation.

Alternatively, if you want to just download separate sections of The Basketball Manifesto, rather than the whole shaboodle, use the following links:
I am continuously intrigued by the esoterica and minutiae of all the aspects of building a basketball team. I want to understand how to build the best basketball teams possible. No, I don’t know why, either.
