No because the analogy said Muresean which is Gheorge's last name. Therefore you need Mugsy's last name.

Based on the titles, I didn't know it would be about team names and players. So I only got 3. I would have done better if it was general basketball terms.

Kinda feels like a better analogy for the Bowie/Jordan selection would be Odom/Durant.

It's a weird analogy, to be sure. Bowie was chosen between a Hall of Famer (Olajuwon) at No. 1 and the best player of all time (MJ) at No. 3. Milicic was chosen between probably the best challenger for best player of all time (Lebron) at No. 1 and... Carmelo Anthony. All due respect to the guy for bringing Jim Boeheim his only NCAA championship, but his NBA career doesn't bear comparison to Jordan, Olajuwon, or James.

I feel like the Kareem-skyhook= Dikembe-finger wag question should be changed because the skyhook is Kareem's signature move on the court while the finger wag is Dikembe's taunt. You could change the question to something Dikembe-finger wag = Westbrook- rock the baby, or Dirk- one-legged fadeaway = Kareem- skyhook. Not a big deal though.

The only reason got Ginobili is because I used to be a Spurs fan.

Why won't you accept surnames? I was confused when Drexler wouldn't work.

If it's a first name in the clue, it has to be a first name in the answer. That's how analogies work

Also, that one doesn't make sense with surnames. Olajuwon the dream?
