Quantcast

The 2010 off-season is really dragging by. I don't know if that's due to the Finals loss or just general missing of the C's. The roster seems pretty set leaving over a month to kill before the season starts. So, without further adieu, here's another edition of Celtics Trivia.

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

Kenny Anderson Georgia Tech
Vin Baker  Hartford
Brandon Hunter Ohio
Dennis Johnson Pepperdine
Scott Pollard Kansas
Walter McCarty Kentucky

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.
Dana Barros

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.
Kendrick Brown

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.
Sebastian Telfair

Scores:
FLCeltsFan 39 (perfect score!)
EN 39 (perfect score)
JR 35
TB 30
Bohemian 22

Standings (entries):
FLCeltsFan 224 (7)
TB 202 (6)
JCCR 100 (3)
JR 55 (2)
EN 39 (1)
Bohemian 32 (2)
SC 22 (1)
Bballee 13 (1)

Part 1: Name the college or high school this ex-Celtics player played last before the NBA (4 points each).
Ed Pinckney
Kevin Gamble
Greg Kite
Sidney Wicks
Hank Finkel
 
Part 2: Name that player based on the three clues (5 points each).
1. I attended Houston before entering the NBA, was an NBA Champion my rookie year, and am the only Celtic to play with both Bill Russell and Larry Bird.
 
2. I was a sociology major at Wright State, was picked 12th overall in my draft, and played for the  MMT Estudiantes in the Spanish ACB at the end of my career.
 
3. I attended East Carolina University, was invited to the 1990 Slam Dunk Competition, and tied for the most points per game on the Bucks in the 92-93 season.

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!

    You should have a "ppg" column- so I'd be averaging 33.6 while JCCR is at 33.3, etc.

    Because remember, NBA scoring champion is based on average, not total points (and a certain minimum of games played)!
