Question For The History buffs
I know the Bucks Raptors series is not yet over; but has a team ever won a playoff series with 2 rookies starting? Especially in the modern day.
I'm inclined to say the first playoff series ever played after the first season would have technically been a game with all rookies.
Oh shoot, we're going back to the first season ever? I'm not qualified to be in this conversation
1989-90 Spurs. Admiral and Sean Elliot both started as rookies.
Thank you, I forgot about Sean Elliott.
Amazingly they also had two 2nd-year players starting: Rod Strickland, whom they acquired midseason in a swap with the Knicks for Maurice Cheeks, and Willie Anderson. Their only "vet" in the starting lineup was Terry Cummings. Larry Brown was their coach. I remember watching the second-round playoff series with Portland, that the Blazers won in 7 games. It was a nail-biter.
