Here are the questions for CT 7:
Part 1: Name the college or high school this ex-Celtics player played last before the NBA (4 points each). Kenny Anderson
Vin Baker
Brandon Hunter
Dennis Johnson
Scott Pollard 
Walter McCarty
Part 2: Name that player based on the three clues (5 points each).

1. I was drafted by the SuperSonics, was the NBA's Most Improved Player in 1995, and am currently a basketball insider for NESN.

2. I was born in Zachary, Louisiana, played at Okaloosa-Walton Community College, and was a First Team Junior-College All-American my sophomore year.

3. I went to Abraham Lincoln HS, wore number 31 with the Blazers (which served as a reminder of where I came from, growing up on 31st Street in Coney Island, New York), and am in my second stint with my current team.

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.

I am posting this on both Celtics Life and Beantown Banter (my personal blog). Best of luck to everyone and remember to e-mail me!

    FL and TB are neck and neck.

  2. He's good. Even with all my reading (I'm always in the middle of a book on Celtics history) and research (I'm a big history buff), he gets some I just can't remember. Sometimes I look them up after sending in my answers and it's like "duh" I knew that. But this has been a fun way to pass the time until season starts. I hope others join in on the fun.

    Haha well thanks. The player colleges I'm usually right on about 90% or more of. I have an amazing knack of remembering those. Not just for Celtics players but for all NBA players.

    If that wasn't part of the contest, I'd likely have around JR's total :p
