Default How well do you know your NBA trivia?

See how many you can get.

Just type in name of the team or the last name of the player.

Quiz #1 - Can you name the NBA Playoffs Champions and Category Leaders (1980-2009)? - sporcle

I managed 136/150.

Quiz #2 - http://www.sporcle.com/games/nbadraft.php (warning... you gotta be old to do well in this one lol)

I managed 33/42.

Quiz #3 - http://www.sporcle.com/games/nba50greatest.php

I managed 35/50.



Pretty cool site for anyone who hasn't seen it before.

Remember this isn't overall league stats.... it's playoffs.

That's why you see Dirk won a year for REBS.

You beat me, TORap. I managed a 134. 10 of the 16 I missed were from 1980-1985.

Spelling hurt me a bit. I lost 5 potential points for screwing up the spelling of Dikembe, Kareem and Parish (I started by typing 2 "r" like "Parr" and it never recognized it).

Also, I'm a total douche for forgeting about Bill Laimbeer. I didn't even try typing it, because I just flat out forgot about him.

I wonder what some of the forum members who are over 30 would score. I wouldn't be surprised if LX, 'trane or Acie ran the whole table. There is one that is particularly difficult to guess, so a score 149 would be very impressive.

Edit - haha all the answers are getting revealed in the thread. It will be hard not to get 150 now!

I'm over 30 and it's not that easy.

Even if you know all the names (the only one I drew a complete blank on was Maxwell) it's tough to remember them all in 10 min.

The only one I missed on my third try was Caldwell Jones. Who the hell is that?

Do you want to know something revolting? I was stuck on who the assists leader was for 2008 and 2009. :facepalm: I mean, major :facepalm:

128/150
