with all fairness, i want answer these questions without doing any research, just off the top of my head.
1-Last team to have 3 top 5 picks.------------Ill go with the dallas mavericks when they had Jason Kidd, Jamal Mashurn and Jimmy jackson all together. WOuldnt be surprised if there was a more recent team though.
2-Dr J retired in 1987?
3-Obviously it must be a laker rookie. Ill go with Devean George?
4-It's David Lee
5-It's Chris Bosh
6-Im not sure but ill guess Dwight Howard?
7-Kobe Lit up the Raptors. ANd I'll add he had 26 in the first half and the lakers were down by like 15 so he decided to take over in the second half and dropped 55.
8-This is too easy. Gilbert got in trouble for a gun and ron admitted to drinking at halftime.
9-Im gonna guess sf because thats what i always thought he played but im guessing thats too obvious and it will be pf.
10-Man, I remember this play, but cant remember the coach. Im gonna guess Mike Woodson?
Lol, i just saw the answers. I can pretty much gaurantee you Dr J retired before 1997. I did okay on the rest.
Yeah.. i meant to put Dr. J retired in 1987 ..his 76'ers lost in the playoffs to milwaukee..too bad they will not let u edit..lol
Since this thread was answered quick, ill add my own questions off the top of my head:
1-Who was the first NBA player to hit 10 threes in a game?
2-What 4 ABA teams were added to the NBA when the two leagues merged?
3-who holds the record for best FT% in a season(minimum 100 attempts)?
4-who holds the record for most assists in a game and how many?
5-who were the recipients the last time the NBA gave out co-rookie of the year awards?
6-who was the youngest player to ever be drafted?
7-Before Kevin Garnett, who was the last player to be drafted right out of highschool?
8-who holds the record for most consecutive games played?
9-During the lakers 3=peat from 2000-2002, they had a differnt starting pf each year. Name all 3 of them.
10-When the Raptors and Grizzlies joined the NBA in 1995, who were their first picks in the draft for each team?
1.thats easy it happen this year..it was done by jesus shuttleworth
2.new jersey..indiana..san antonio..& denver
3.calvin murphy i think or rick barry
4.scott skiles..i think shorty had 31 assists
5.steve francis & elton brand in the 99-00 season
6.andrew bynum or jermaine o'neal
7.bill willoughby..i think thats how u spell his name
9.ac green in 2000..horace grant in 2001..samaki walker in 2002
10.in 95 the raptors selected damon stoudemire..grizzlies selected big country
yeah, you actually corrected me on a few of those rudeboy. I thought hill and kidd were the last 2 co-roy's but you were correct with brnad and francis. You were also right about willoughby being the last highschooler selected, i was thinking it was moses malone.
However, i cant belive you thought ray allen was the first to hit 10 3's in a game this past season and said it was easy. Numerous players have hit 10 threes before. Kobe and Donyell Marshall both hit 12 in game. The answer is Brian Shaw back around 1993 he hit 10.
number 3 is jose calderon. He went like 153 for 157 from the ft line a few years ago.
Skiles had 30 assists and is correct and bynum was the youngest ever drafted.
2 Spurs Warriors,
3. Jose Calderon
4. Scott Skiles 26
5. Cwebb and Jason Williams
6. Andrew Bynum
9. no idea
10. Damon stoudamire and Shareef Abdul Raheem
before kevin garnett? i thought the absolute last player drafted out of high school was amir johnson.. but i think i may have misunderstood the question?
1. No idea
3. Derek Fisher?
4. David Lee
5. Chris Bosh
6. Emeka Okafor
7. Toronto Raptors
8. He had a gun. No idea.
10. Mike Woodson
I didn't do all that well.
1. Donyell Marshall
2. Nets, Spurs, Sixers, Bullets?
3. Mark Price
4. Scott Skiles, 30
5. No idea
7. Moses Malone
9. Samaki Walker, Horace Grant, ...
10. No idea
I think number 1 is the Heat, with Shaq, Alonzo and Christian Laettner! I could be wrong and this was in like 2005.
4) David Lee- I think he was the last pick in the 1st round.
5) Easy- Chris Bosh
6) I think its Okafor- good first year but never got much better.
7) Easy- Toronto
10) Mike woodson
I love me some trivia.
1-Who was the first NBA player to hit 10 threes in a game? Craig Hodges. Not for sure. Rex Chapman is my other guess.
2-What 4 ABA teams were added to the NBA when the two leagues merged? Nuggets, Pacers, Spurs, Nets.
3-who holds the record for best FT% in a season(minimum 100 attempts)? So many great FT shooters have been in the league. Mark Price is my guess.
4-who holds the record for most assists in a game and how many? None other than Scotty Skiles with 30 when playing for the Magic.
5-who were the recipients the last time the NBA gave out co-rookie of the year awards? I remember Kidd and Hill shared, but I'm thinking there was one after that. Francis and Brand is my guess.
6-who was the youngest player to ever be drafted? Andrew Bynum.
7-Before Kevin Garnett, who was the last player to be drafted right out of highschool? There was some guy with the Hawks back in 93-94 or 94-95 that was pretty young. Can't remember if he jumped from high school though. Can't remember his name either. I'll have to go with Moses Malone.
8-who holds the record for most consecutive games played? AC 'Ironman' Green. Is he still a virgin?
9-During the lakers 3=peat from 2000-2002, they had a differnt starting pf each year. Name all 3 of them. Toughie. Horace Grant, AC Green, Medvendenko? Not so sure on the last one.
10-When the Raptors and Grizzlies joined the NBA in 1995, who were their first picks in the draft for each team? Bryant 'Big Country' Reeves for the Grizz and Damon "Mighty Mouse' Stoudamire for the Raptors.
How did I do Perez?
I want more trivia. NOW.
the answers for my questions: 1-brian shaw, 2-denver, indiana, new jersey, san antonio, 3-jose calderon 4-scott skiles, 5-brand & frnacis, 6-bynum, 7-bill willoughby, 8-ac green, 9-ac green, horace grant, samaki walker, 10-damon stoudamire, bryant reeves.
