OK here are the questions for CT 3!

Part 1: Name the college or high school this ex-Celtics player played last before the NBA (4 points each).

Von Wafer
Justin Reed
Cedric Maxwell
Theo Ratliff
Dana Barros

Part 2: Name that player (5 points each)
1. I was born in Lagos, Nigeria, wen to the University of the Pacific, was drafted by the Clippers, and was on the All-Rookie 2nd team in 1999.

2. I was drafted by the Washington Capitols, led the league in free throw percentage seven times, and was named the MVP of the 1955 All-Star Game

3. I played for five teams from 1989-99, have recorded at least 20 assists in both NCAA and NBA games, and revolutionized the "floater" shot in the lane.

We'll see how this works out. I think it's simpler, but the questions are still fairly difficult. Hopefully it produces some more competitors.

Again, I do not have any prizes, but I know a true sports fan has great pride in knowing the most about their team. For this reason, I ask that all participants answer with their personal knowledge, and not research each question.

I will keep a running tally and plan on stopping at the start of the regular season pending the amount of interest this generates. I kindly ask that you do not post them in comments as that would ruin the fun for everyone. PLEASE E-MAIL ALL ANSWERS TO ME AT SEBREDSOX24@HOTMAIL.COM.

This will run until 7 PM eastern time Monday. I am posting this on both Celtics Life and BBSB (my personal blog). Best of luck to everyone and remember to e-mail me!

    I got it wrong, I meant #4, Tony Delk last time, not #3.

  2. tb727 says:

    Wow I'm impressed at how good I did- especially the Julian coach guess which I guess I got credit for.

    I should've participated in the first one!

  3. Bailey says:

    Jenda- What do you mean? Delk was #4.

    TB- I gave the julian answer to both of you as you both had the last name right lol.

  4. Jenda says:

    Yeah, I knew it was Tony Delk but I said I knew #3. I meant #4.

  5. I didn't get #3 either. I looked it up afterward and was very surprised as in all my reading on Celtics history I didn't know that about ML.

  6. Bailey says:

    OK I gotcha Jenda. I didn't know much about ML until I read "Let Me Tell You A Story" by John Feinstein about Red last week. That led me to read up on him and that's how I found it. Great book by the way, I highly suggest it.
