With the roster set and time to kill between training camp, why not try some Celtics Trivia?
Here are the answers to CT 6:
Part 1: Name the college or high school this ex-Celtics player played last before the NBA (4 points each).

Gerald Henderson Virginia Commonwealth
Part 2: Name that player (5 points each)

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